  1. Improve the SSL Settings interface

    (1)Add alerts or warnings when a certificate is about to expire.
    (2)Change the font color on certificates that are soon to expire.
    (3)Combine the list for certificate and binding into a 2 column list so it is easier to see that you have the correct certificate bound. It is time consuming to continuously scroll up and down to match thumbprints.

    SSL/TLS certificates are becoming a required element on the web today. I think it is time to improve this interface.

    • I should be able to "Deallocate" AppService Plan

      We can de-allocate a Virtual Machine (and start it again). Why can't we have similar capability with App Service Plan?

      Scaling down to a free-tier is not a solution, we will loose many settings.

      Scaling to lower tier is not good-enough, its still not free.

      Delete and re-deploy is not good-enough, we loose some residual data.

      Charge us for residual resources like storage, pip, etc. etc. But, give an option to de-allocate the App Service Plan (and re-activate) just as we can do for ARM VMs.

      • Allow to start an AAD authentication express setup from an ARM template

        When enabling AAD authentication on an App service, using an ARM tempalte, you have to manually specify a clientid and clientsecret. Something like MSI: identity: "system" would be much easier. Especially from a Ci/CD perspective.

        • How to get required information about Webapp.

          How can we pull data about web app like its cost center, deployer, database it is connected to, relational database, WBS value, full domain name,tech_stack,......etc. by USING POWERSHELL SCRIPT. We have 100s of apps in production. It is very tough to get these information manually. IF we have a script it would be very usefull.

            • Support SSH to specific container in multi-container setup (Compose or Kubernetes)

              Currently the docs (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service/containers/app-service-linux-ssh-support) only describe setting up SSH access to a single container. But what if I have a multi container setup? For example PHP-FPM with an Nginx reverse proxy.

              It seems the SSH access is only supported for the public facing container (in this case Nginx).

              It would be great if I could setup SSH access to all containers.

                • During deployment query Web Apps instance status

                  For apps with more than one instance, when deploying app settings in one step and pushing code in another you can enter a race condition where an app could be updating and then a code change comes through and corrupts the deployment. It would be good to provide a way to query the status of the last operation for all instances before proceeding with the next step.

                  • Bug: Deployment Center has incorrect git url for deployment slot

                    When I create a deployment slot for an Azure App Service named "Staging" and set the deployment slot to local git using Kudu, the deployment center gives a Git Clone Uri that is not correct.

                    The git clone URI I get for the production slot looks like this:

                    https://<deploy user>@azuregitdeploybug.scm.azurewebsites.net:443/azuregitdeploybug.git

                    The git clone URI I get for the Staging deployment slot looks like this:

                    https://<deploy user>@azuregitdeploybug-staging.scm.azurewebsites.net:443/azuregitdeploybug/staging.git

                    This is incorrect. The correct clone URL is visible when looking at the overview of the deployment slot. The correct url is this:

                    https://<deploy user>@azuregitdeploybug-staging.scm.azurewebsites.net:443/azuregitdeploybug.git

                    • Support Application Insights integration for Containers

                      Web Apps for Containers don't currently support enabling Application Insights integration. The button is greyed out in the Web App blade.

                      Of course I can add the SDK to my application. But what's great on Web Apps (for Windows) is that I don't necessarily have to change my application to already start logging valuable information.

                      • Environment Variables not set on containers

                        Currently the documentation says that by creating Application Settings (it says use the az prompt which I've tried too) you'll end up passing -e <setting>

                        Except this doesn't work. They're never passed to the docker run command.

                        If this does work, please educate us all on how to do this (Application Settings through the UI should just work!) and if not, it needs to be fixed.

                        • Initial memory usage

                          When I create an App Service Plan for Linux, with the default size (S1) the memory usage is already 45%. When I deploy my first container, this even rises to 57%. Even though the container itself is only using about 40MB memory (2,5%) (appsvc/sample-hello-world).

                          The second container (also appsvc/sample-hello-world) makes almost no impact on the memory usage.

                          Isn't this a bit much?

                            Long back in Feb 2017, an user raised an issue regarding enabling Console, Extensions, Log Stream, Process Explorer features in Azure App Service Environment (ASE) and the response from MS team was that this is a known issue and MS is working on it. But after that there was no update on this issue and it looks like that thread was not updated for a while.

                            I am still facing this issue in the Web App inside my ASE. Could you please give an update when will this feature be available inside ASE? These are all handy features in…

                              Reader role should be sufficient to read the log stream of an App Service

                              It works with Contributor role but with Reader role we get an access denied.

                              We need to enable some developpers to read the log stream of App Services in PRODUCTION.

                                • Deployment Center missing capability that was in Continuous Delivery

                                  Continuous Delivery was the initial capability to connect Web Apps directly to source control for automated Build and Releases. We were using this capability along with VSTS for Build and Release of projects we store in a self-hosted private BitBucket repo. With Continuous Delivery, when you selected "External GIT" for source control, you had the option to mark it as a private repo which would then present you with fields to enter credentials to the private repo.

                                  Deployment Center has replaced Continuous Delivery and also supports "External GIT" for source control but the ability to mark the repo as private…

                                  • Please display a warning message that the main app will be stopped meanwhile the restoring process (snapshot preview) is taking effect.

                                    Snapshots can be restored to the original web app, a slot of the web app, or any other web app in the same App Service Plan. While the restore operation is in progress, the web app will be stopped. It is strongly recommended to restore snapshots to a new slot instead of overwriting an existing slot in order to prevent data loss if the restore operation is unsuccessful.
                                    Snapshots contain both web app files and web app settings. You can choose to restore files only, or to restore the settings as well. All settings contained in regular backups are also…

                                    • Web-App with CDN, Application-Gateway and Traffic Manager

                                      I think it is actually possible to activate traffic Manager on web-Apps. But ist still not easy, to add a CDN, Application-Gateway and Traffic Manager to a site.
                                      Coudl you please bring it all together?

                                      Thanks, Martin

                                      • implement a graceful restart an Azure Web App with multiple instance

                                        We would like to have feature through which we can perform the configuration changes through portal without down time when there are multiple instances are available. The similar stuff is available in advanced restart where you can define the delay between restart of each instance.

                                        • The Always On setting should have an option to make it sticky to the slot when swapping

                                          This is odd it isn't this way by default but should at the very least have an option to make it sticky so as to not break anyone's current practices (in fact, shouldn't more settings have the option to be sticky?).

                                          The issue here is that an always on slot consumes resources. If for example each app consumes 200Megs of RAM, and I have 5 app services running on a service plan, each app service has 2 slots for swapping, then I need to have Always On turned on unnecessarily for 10 slots (2gigs of RAM consumed for nothing). The…
