  1. Allow Users with Reader Access to View App Service Plan Scale Out Run History

    Allow Users with Reader Access to View App Service Plan Scale Out History. This view is possible with Contributor access. However, in Prod environments, we cannot grant Contributor access to users and users frequently request this visibility to the Scale Out Run History.

  2. Preserve custom DNS Alias

    When restoring a web app from backup, and you choose the option to ignore custom DNS alias, leave the existing ones in place rather than deleting them. This is useful when restoring a dev environment from prod and you want to keep the dev custom DNS mappings / SSL certs in place.

  3. Increase app settings variable name character limit

    App Settings variable names are currently limited to 64 characters on Linux Web Apps and anything over is silently truncated. As far as I know, this "feature" is not documented anywhere and can cause a lot of headaches.

  4. App Servcie - Mobile Apps needs way to do both (Force Authentication) and Allow Triggered Behavior

    I have been using Mobile Apps for a whle now... but am running into a scenerio where i need timer/trigger functionality to make an API call say every 10 min.

    Azure Functions making the API call to my App Services - Mobile App seems like the way to go. However, in this article "Configure your App Service app to use Azure Active Directory sign-in" Step 5: I have the express settings forcing users to log in or be redirected. Other than having Azure Functions open up a DB connection to interact with the DB directly, is there a better way…

  6. MIM Web Service Connector Bug - TLS 1.1/1.2 not supported

    I've verified on both 1.1.830.0 and 1.1.861.0 of the MIM Web Service Connector https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=51495 that these connectors do not support TLS 1.1/1.2.
    When trying to connect to a service that requires TLS 1.1/1.2 errors are generated as per the attached screenshot.

    Can support please be added for TLS 1.1/1.2 services?

  7. AAD authentication for FTP

  10. 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.

  11. Enable Intra Application communication with in Azure App Service environment

    Currently say for example we have 2 WebApp's deployed inside Azure App Service Envrionment with ILB, and WebApp1 has calls to WebApp2 then custom DNS Server has to be deployed and configured in order to enable communication (Name resolution).

    Would be helpful if we can have this additional avoided unless we need any additional name resolution. Is there a possibility?

  12. secure the on premise web api .net core 2.0 using azure AD and getting postman and swagger ui to work

    Does anyone have a good video or coding example that I can follow? I need to make sure the secured api piece works using postman and how I can get swagger ui to work also. Because My api and my web application are both on premise can I use Azure AD for OAuth2 or do I have to create my own identity server?

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. Block Certain IP Address(es) and Allow All Other Public Traffic

    Within a Web App, I know how to allow certain IP addresses, but there is no option to block certain IP addresses while allowing all other traffic. What I am looking for it "block Tom's IP, but allow all other public traffic".

  18. remove server header from the front end servers

    Please remove the server header from the web app front end server and from API Management servers.
    It does not matter if our web app removes the header, the front end server still has the header

  19. make Active Directory Password parameter in .Net Core like .Net Fwk.

    This a real trouble.
    If there actually IS the parameter in te connection string, AND it is displayed as a valid connection string in Azure Portal, it MUST be supported.

    Over and over, the features and documentations make it harder to use. And that make non sense.
    I teach, train and Support lots of developers from all around the world, explaining them that it is simple to work with MSFT technologies . But this is not the way MSFT make things now.
    Of course, it must be supported in AzureWeb apps in order to be useful for customers.
    TIA

  20. Use Consul with Azure Web Apps

    I have a large number of services/clients hosted in many ways and want to create a service discovery solution across them.
    I wanted to go further with the consul approach, however, since I also have Azure Web Apps in my environment, those apps cannot be used with Consul. At least, if you consider this Stack Overflow question https://stackoverflow.com/questions/48507612/using-consul-with-azure-app-services
