  1. Assign users or groups per virtual application

    It would be great to configure assigned users or groups per virtual application in a web app instead of on the whole web app level. because in our case, we have to have different users for different virtual applications.

  2. Connecting WebApp Service and a DBaaS (MS SQL MySQL etc)PaaS through a VNet service

    Connecting WebApp Service and a DBaaS (MS SQL MySQL etc)PaaS through a VNet service. We understand that there is a SNAT limitation when a webapp service is connected to a PaaS service that causes error in the application.
    We need private endpoint for DB PaaS services for overcoming the SNAT limitation and also to reduce the latency while connected through private IP address.

  3. Support to disable Basic Auth in App Service

    The support to disable Basic Auth is highly important in App Service from security point of view.

    The reason is very simple, any one access to have Basic Auth credential can be disastrous and is providing the weakest link to peep into your environment.

    It might be helpful in many ways but at the same time can be highly dangerous if not handled properly.

  4. Web Apps vnet integration without ASE

    The Web Apps have a VNET Configuration section.
    This becomes very useful in consuming database/storage/keyvault via subnet endpoint(s) without employing the expensive App Service environment (ASE).

    unfortunately it has been in preview since last Aug 2018. I worked with product team to get the bug fixed (~Mar 2019) i.e it could not talk to SQL PaaS DB over endpoint.

    Please if you can help release that functionality so we can use this in prod.

  5. Advanced application restart gated by Delete lock

    At the moment, if there is a Delete lock applied to an App Service, it prevents the Advanced application restart feature from working. Reference ticket 119060721001994.

    It appears that Advanced application restart is an older feature implemented before locks were exposed, and it issues a DELETE HTTP request to perform the Advanced application restart, which is denied due to the Delete lock being in place for the app service.

    This is inconsistent with other actions that effectively do the same thing - via Restart, Scale Out/In, Scale Up/Down, and Kudu process kills. Note that Kudu is the only way to…

  6. Add support for NetworkWatcher / NSG Flow logs for App Service with Regional Vnet Integration enabled

    At the moment, if one uses an App Service with Vnet Integration there is NO way to monitor the traffic that traverses this path. For organizations with requirements to monitor ALL network traffic for integrity / Security / Audit purposes - this presents a significant challenge as ALL traffic that traverses this integration is not able to be monitored. Since the App Service presents itself as on a given subnet within the Vnet - there should be NO reason that NetworkWatcher or NSG flow logs shouldn't be usable.

  7. Use Azure Active Directory sign-in to protect a virtual directory in web app.

    Currently, the Authentication / Authorization blade for azure web apps does not have a specific configurations for protecting virtual directories. however, many business cases need to have the main site available for public but some pages (like admin pages) need to be protected by Azure AD

    Therefore, it will be great to use Azure Active Directory sign-in to protect a virtual directory in web app.

    Thank you,
    Raed Alahmad

  11. Add support to do POST health check requests for SOAP web service health checks, instead of only doing a GET for health checks

    Adding support to do POST health check requests for SOAP web service health checks in traffic manager, instead of only doing a GET for health checks.

    The current issue is the dynamic DNS is not detecting proper outages of our SOAP web services because it performs a GET request and doesn't seem any problems, however we have had problems where our POST requests have stopped working and the dynamic DNS does NOT kick it since it can't detect it.

  12. Need a read-only role or operation for Web App Kudu logs.

    Developers need to be able to access the KUDU logs for deployment and diagnostic troubleshooting without having contributor access to the web app. Can a read-only role or resource provider operation be created in order to grant this level of access?

    Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature list and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature

  13. Disable the Scripting.FilesystemObject

    One of the STIG recomendations is to disable the Scripting.FilesystemObject ComObject (
    https://www.stigviewer.com/stig/iis_7.0_web_server/2017-04-05/finding/V-13700) This can be easily done on an IIS server, but not on a (Windows) WebApp

  14. Client IPs shown as 0.0.0.0 in Azure Web App for Containers (linux)

    Valid IPs are available for Azure Web App for Windows but not Web App for container Linux. This is much needed for supportablity such as 403 http status code.

  15. add warning for hyphens in connectionstring in setup for webapps for containers

    cfr. https://twitter.com/IBruyninckx/status/1121082148067401728?s=20

    I’d love to see a warning - at least - in the azure portal that connectionStrings with hyphens are a bad idea... that would prevent a lot of wasted debugging hours for others.

  16. Metrics on Outbound connections from Azure

    We are seeing intermittent exceptions while making outbound calls from Azure to other system on our application hosted on Azure App Service. We talked to the Azure support team they provided some good feedback on how to reduce it but we are not provided any logs i.e. what happens on back end on network level so that we can establish some bench marking for our performance testing. We have seen the issue couple of times and not getting consistent root cause of the issue backing up by logs etc. This makes this issue very unpredictable and only option to solve/reduce…

  17. About access control for Hybrid Connections

    I want to configure RBAC (IAM) individually for Web App with hybrid connection, but I can only configure it per Web App.

    Also, although the actual status of the hybrid connection should be Service Bus, it can not be set because it is not displayed in the list.

    I would like to be able to configure RBAC (IAM) separately for Web App with hybrid connections.

  18. Divert with a custom error page when an app service configured with IP Restrictions

    When an App Service is configured with an IP Restriction, only whitelisted IP's can access the App service URL/site. Other users cant access the URL. By default the blacklisted IP's or denied IP's will receive
    Error 403 - This web app is stopped. Many SR's can been be seen with this requirement to divert or return custom error message instead of 403 error. It would be great if we have a feature in portal to divert with custom message when the IP restrictions are configured for a web app.
