  1. 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.

  2. Allow shift-clicking in Azure workbook dropdowns

    Currently in Azure Monitor Workbooks, dropdown parameter values are not shift-clickable. This means that if you want to select multiple values you have to click each value individually. This is not fun.

  6. Add naked domain support to App Service Managed Certificates

    Currently naked domains are not supported when creating App Service Managed Certificates. I want to be able to create a free SSL certificate on a naked/apex domain.

  7. Support mounting azure SMB file share for Azure App Service container deployments.

    Support mounting azure file volumes like that in Azure Container Instances when using Azure App Services Web App Docker container deployment.

    This simple feature is really useful for mounting files into the container that are not usually baked into the Docker image e.g config files.

  8. Enable backups to take connection strings that are escaped using single quotes

    Currently connection strings do not allow passwords that are escaped using single quotes. For example set your database password to "pwd;". Obviously, you cannot include a semi-color in the connection string since that's how the string is separated into its components. The web.config will allow you to escape the password using single quotes, however the Azure backup functionality will just fail.

    Example:
    Web App and backup both fail (which is correct)
    password=pwd;
    Web App works, but backup fails (I think the backup should be fixed)
    password='pwd;'

  9. Ability to view availability of regions by subscription

    Provide a page (and notification on the corresponding resource page) that provides the information about when/if a specific resource cannot be scaled in its region due to specific constraints. For example, currently sponsored subscriptions cannot be deployed to West US. It came as an unpleasant surprise to our team as we were getting high load and needed to scale out.

  11. IIS limitation to only extract leaf cert (with private key) when passing certificate chain to azure from client.

    Azure is built on IIS, so the IIS limitation to only extract the leaf cert severely hinders the possibility to programmatically extract the root certificate and the following certs associated with that root certificate. There is an option to manually add these via the portal, however, this will cause an issue when something is changed on the client side that would require a reupload of the certificate. Would like to request a way or alternative way of passing this certificate chain that will allow for all certs to be passed and not just the root certificate. This chain is passed…

  12. 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.

  13. Allow app service to use hybrid connection namespaces in another subscription

    When adding a hybrid connection to an app service, if you choose to use an existing "Service Bus Namespace" (Why is it called that and not Relay like it is everywhere else?), it requires you to choose a namespace that is in the name subscription as the app service.

    I would like to use an existing namespace in the same tenant but a different subscription. I'm not sure if this is a limitation on hybrid connections or a limitation of the configuration screen in the portal.

  14. 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…

  15. Support for private intermediate CA

    Provide ability to create private intermediate CA in Key Vault that would be used to generate certificates used by internal services hosted on Azure.
    Such certificates would not be used by the end clients so these would not require to be signed by a public CA due to either price (DigiCert/GlobalSign) or being limited to public domains/hostnames (Let's Encrypt).

  16. event log history

    We've had the issue where to diagnose a problem we've needed support to check the historical event logs to see that there was an error throwing, however, as the errors were sporadic, it's been exceedingly difficult to diagnose until support were able to trace exceptions thrown in historical event logs and we were then able to implement code fixes.

    Can a history of event logs be made available for us to access? Even going back a week or two would have been exceedingly useful!

  17. Add ability to restart WebJobs from single click

    If a WebJob needs to be restarted, we have to first stop, refresh, refresh, refresh, refresh (get the point) then start it back up. It would be nice if we just had a button to do a Restart that would take the WebJob down and then bring it back up.

  18. Add service health notifications for planned maintenance on App Services

    Currently, no notification for planned maintenance are sent for App Services when service health alerts are activated. Such notifications would be helpful to prepare for potential outages if the platform maintenance impacts availability or performance of the service.

  19. VNet Integration documentation remove "production workloads" reference

    Although VNet integration feature is in preview, online documentation (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service/web-sites-integrate-with-vnet) states that feature "...is supported for Windows app production workloads with the following limitation...". In our case none of the limitations applied so we decided to use it in production. Unfortunately once live we experienced connectivity issues that resulted to be related to missing reconfiguration mechanisms (reconfigure the regional VNet integration) on failure.
    Talking to Azure Support I understood issues like this are being investigated by the Azure Product group team and will be fixed in upcoming versions. Talking to them my understanding of the situation is that…

  20. AzurePortalDeploy folder should be deleted after the package is installed

    I saw in my collection of blobs one I had not created, whose name is AzurePortalDeploy. It contains a collection of cscfg and cspkg files, which I guess as used everytime I upload a web service to the cloud.
    In the past, these files, were deleted once the web service was up and running. Now they pile up in the AzurePortalDeploy with (I think) no purpose at all.
