  1. We're sorry, your Web app is unavailable

    For almost two weeks now (starting 11.02.2018) Web App in UK South regularly shows "We're sorry, your Web app is unavailable". Such outages take from 1 to 4 minutes usually and occur mostly in the evenings or at night - while this happens response times are extremly long and access to server is denied - we cannot upload any files using our app.
    Your support told us to use Local Cache, but that's not a long term solution as our app is growing quite fast.

    When can we expect this fixed? It's directly impacting our customers.

        • Enable surfacing all attributes from Win32_PerfRawData_Tcpip_TCP (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa394341(v=vs.85).aspx)

          We have been experiencing sporadic times of high dependency latency. Understanding where this is coming from would help narrow down a long term solution.

          • Make P2S configuration work with BGP VPN GW setups

            At the moment the VPN client config does not seem to pick up the advertised routes from the onprem side of the BGP VPN. These routes are dynamically advertised.

            The workaround by adding routes manually through the App Service Plan network configuration does not seem to be stable. It works for some time, then seems to be disregarded until one does a sync network action.

            This means that active-passive or active-active VPN GW with BGP can not be used in conjunction with the App Service VPN (P2S) connection scheme.

            Any serious Azure design needs a robust VPN gateway, so it…

            • Notification hook for manual scaling on an ASE

              Scaling within an ASE is unreliable and often takes hours (although support maintains that it should only take 30-45min). We need a way of being notified on the status of the scaling operations. For example, an email notification, web hook, etc.

                The hours of scaling you’re describing, is that on ASE v1 or v2? v2 should have much faster scaling operations. If you encounter an issue on v2, please open a support ticket.

                For the option of receiving notification for completed deployment, we will respond later after reviewing.

                Thanks,

              • Github deployment show repository count

                I'm not confident that the Azure Portal deployment option with Github is pulling in all repositories in the organization. An easy way to verify that would be to display the repository count somewhere in the UI.

                • Speed up deployment of option for customers to select their required TLS encryption level

                  Microsoft will make available the option to select TLS 1.2 on April 30, 2018. Authorize.net is disabling support for TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 on February 28, 2018. A 2 month gap is a long time and It's probable many legacy web apps will stop working on that day. It would be great if Microsoft could speed up deployment of the manual option to February 28, so unawares customers can make the switch without needing a programmer.

                    Hi there,

                    We are definitely moving as fast as we can to enable TLS 1.2 across the board. There are a few outstanding items before this is released and we can’t promise support before February 28th. We are definitely trying to get this out earlier than our committed date of April 30th though.

                    The actual option, once enabled, will be a simple switch in the Azure Portal or through CLI.

                    Thanks,
                    Oded

                      • Make it possible to set up CRON jobs via SSH shell on Linux web app

                        Creating scheduled tasks via CRON on linux boxes is very easy - but on linux web app in azure it seems impossible. This is basic and fundamentally necessary feature for LAMP stack developers and should be added and clearly documented to encourage more linux uses to host apps on Azure.

                                  • IPv6 - Create IP Restrictions

                                    I would like the ability to create IPv6 restrictions for the web application. We're using a proxy in front of the web apps and it will pass traffic over both IPv4 and IPv6. We've setup the IPv4 restrictions to ensure everything is flowing through the proxy to get to the website but we're now having to disable IPv6 due to the limitation of Azure's inability to write IPv6 rules.

                                    • Allow importing 3rd party ssl certs for use as app service certificates in app services/web apps

                                      Currently if I have an ssl certificate being used in multiple app services, when I renew that certificate I have to update the app services one by one or via powershell. It looks like using an app service certificate would solve this by allowing me to renew in one place and have it update each of the app services automatically. The problem being that I use 3rd party issued ssl certs vs ones created as app service certs in azure.

                                      Ideal would be to either allow uploading 3rd party ssl certs to be used as app service certs or offer…
