  1. Enable Hybrid Connections to work with read-only routing feature in SQL Server Availability Groups

    We have a setup where App Service in Azure connects to on-premise SQL Server via Hybrid Connection. SQL Server environment on-premise is AlwaysOn Availability Group of 3 servers.

    Azure App Service uses connection string, where "Server=" part specifies Availability Group Listener DNS name. App Service connects to AG Listener just fine, and listener directs App Service to primary server. Setup works fine and App Service can read data from primary server.

    However, when we add "ApplicationIntent=ReadOnly" part into connection string, App Service can't connect to SQL Server and throws generic "network specific or instance related..." error. Our goal by adding…

  2. Update Azure Functions sandbox to include Visual Fox Pro OLE DB provider

    The issue simply is that the Visual Fox Pro OLE DB driver is not installed on function machines.

    The driver is available from Microsoft here - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=14839.

    It should be as simple as to copy the vfpoledb.dll file into the D:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\System\Ole DB\ directory along with the other OLE DB drivers that are currently included. I have tried to do this myself through the Kudu console but don't have premissions of course.

  5. Offer higher memory / RAM app service plans

    I can see this has been raised before but we would really like to see plan options with higher memory. We could host about twice as many applications on the same plan if memory was increased to something like 32gb. Our apps aren't CPU intensive but need more memory, nor any more up.

    Thanks!

  6. Enable 'Resource Health' Feature for Isolated App Service Plans

    Enable 'Resource Health" feature for Isolated App Service Plans.

    Currently, it shows error message "incorrect health status - not supported"

    "
    Resource health status is not available for Free, Shared or Isolated App Service plan. To enable health status, consider upgrading to a Basic, Standard, or Premium App Service plan.
    Report incorrect health status "

    Instead, users of the most expensive plan, Isolated, in an ASE, are encouraged to change their plan?

    Please add the feature or adjust the message. Thank you.

  7. Modify UTC time the Azure Functions

    Currently Microsoft's Azure funcions service, there is no way to modify UTC time for Brazil. The result of this is a divergence in the task execution time and also in the logs that are collected by Application Insight and Azure Monitor.

  8. Please have a reliable way for applications to get their slot name

    Right now our application code has no way of reliably figuring out which slot it is operating within. WEBSITEHOSTNAME is invalid when performing slot swaps and APPSETTINGWEBSITESITE_NAME is the same for all slots.

    Also, we need the slot name before processing any HTTP requests, so can't really parse the hostname in an HTTP request either. This should be the responsibility of the hosting service to tell which slot is hosting the application.

  10. Parallel Deploy w/ Java App using Tomcat in webapp

    we currently have a RHEL VM Cluster that allows parallel deploys. meaning that a client stays on the current code version until they log out. then on next login they would be moved to the most current version deployed. this is dont with multicasting the sessionId to all app servers so if the traffic is moved, they dont need a new session id bc it still exists on the new server. currently with webapps (linux, tomcat 8.x, java) there is no way to do this. using deploy slots will insta kick clients out of the session and move them to…

  11. Allow auto-shutdown of Web Apps in DevTest Labs

    Allow Web Apps running on App Service to be auto-shutdown when running in a DevTest Lab.

    DevTest Labs currently allows auto-shutdown for VMs. You can add PaaS services to DevTest Labs via a "Public Repository" or templates, so please extend auto-shutdown functions to these services.

  13. Install a Docker container as part of a Site Extension, but not as the primary App Service site.

    I want to use an agent that is written in Go to listen for requests from within the App Service. Although this can be accomplished by running the Go agent in a separate VM, the intent is to have it seamlessly available within the App Service. We will be installing another agent-like library into the App Service, and it will be embedded in the web app so that it can monitor it and send data to the Go agent.

  14. Support Availability Zones for App Service Environment

  15. Application Security Groups (ASG) support for App Service Environments (ASE)

    As stated in the comments section of this page https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/applicationsecuritygroups/
    "It's on the roadmap, all services integrated with VNet like ASE and SQL MI will be part of ASGs groups, as of today the scope doesn't cover subnets for those services, we are exploring options in the near future."

  16. Stick to the original timeline for App Services in UAE

    We have clients in the middle east who are currently hosted in Europe. This causes high latency which would be solved by hosting in UAE.

  18. Make Small App Service Plans (S1/B1) more reliable

    We've faced a issue of random high CPU in App Service Plan (S1), Azure support says that it is due to internal monitoring. But my suggestion is why to keep app service plan on such low resources that internal monitoring services suck the CPU / Memory resources.

    In Short - Microsoft should make the azure internal services to use minimum resources / increase resources for small app service plans such as S1.

  19. Custom domain and path for web app easy authentication (AD), when going through application gateway

    As of now if you have a domain pointing to application gateway which points to different services where one of those uses the easy auth, that service uses its own default azure domain instead of the domain pointing at application gateway with the path assigned to it (e.g /webportal)

    which makes easy auth not useful when there is an application gateway in front of it

  20. Add better logging for Isolated App Service Environment when Deployments Fail

    It can be extremely frustrating when an isolated ASE fails to deploy if the only error log says "The resource provision operation did not complete within the allowed timeout period. "

    There are a number of forum threads, blogs, etc. that discuss what to possibly check when this error is thrown.

    I think it could just do better. If there are requirements to communicate with some management IP during creation and it can't then that should be in the error log.
