  1. Option to protect deployment slots from being indexed by search engines

    Please provide the ability for Web App deployment slots to reply with a NOINDEX directive to search engines, either with response headers or a custom robots.txt file for the slots.

  2. Make @microsoft.keyvault references obsolete or safe

    Currently all values from @microsoft.keyvault references in functions are copied to environment variables in the runtime. Although values are not visible in the portal, they are when opening a console.

    If you type SET in the console (Windows runtime) you will see all your previously secret values.

    This will not do.

  3. 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,

  4. Alert for when the App Service platform is scheduled for a new .NET Core version upgrade

    An alert should be raised when a .NET Core version upgrade is scheduled for the App Service platform. Ideally, the alert should occur well in advance of the actual upgrade to give application teams time to prepare.

  6. Search Webjob logs by Date and Time

    I look in to Azure Portal Web Job Logs- to find any errors that occurred while executing the Web job (for our application) and then replay the function to process it correctly.

    The problem I am facing is - The Azure Web Job Logs display only 10 at a time as well as its says N days ago, which is not helpful. I need to click “Older” button many times to go to a particular date and time.

    It will be helpful, if you allow us to Search by date (From and To), that helps to narrow the search logs.

  9. Allow easy conversion between 'web app' types, especially to/from API apps

    My team initially created our API on a web-app service, it seems like we're not alone. When we started experimenting with the API mgmt service, it wouldn't accept it for import. I had to delete the web-app, provision a new API-app, migrate the code to it and only then would API mgmt import it.

    For these cases, a conversion process to/from API-app would be very useful

  10. Set linux docker settings to not starve system resources

    We've ran into issues where, when pushing a new updated docker image, the web app spikes to 100% resources usage. This then crashed the whole web app service. A member of the Support Team mentioned that mount.ntfs and dockerd were pegging the CPU utilization to 100%, starving other critical services.

    When running normally, our services were using a combined 10% of CPU utilization, far below our purchase limit.

    With correct permission setting, docker should not have the ability to starve out all resources. In a PaaS environment, I shouldn't have to care about the underlying VM. Please set the permissions…

  11. Add AzPSModules to App Service environment variable

    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/707ba677-70b6-4d61-98c9-049ec6e21a4e/request-for-az-module-in-web-app?forum=windowsazurewebsitespreview#a09fdf90-1a3a-466d-934d-32805d222002

    With reference to this post, I have been using Az Module because AzureRm will be deprecated in future, I think that Az Module should be added into PSModulePath in Application Settings so that the setting will persist instead of appending the Az Module Path everytime the script starts.

    Refer to the quote in the post for more detailed information.

  12. [Linux] Allow both ${WEBAPP_STORAGE_HOME} style volume mounts and BYOS volume mounts at same time

    At present, you can choose to map your WebApp Service storage into a container using the WEBSITESENABLEAPPSERVICESTORAGE flag and by prefixing your volume mounts with ${WEBAPPSTORAGEHOME}.

    Also, you can attach your own storage, by specifying a <custom-id> as a volume mount (as per https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/appserviceteam/2018/09/24/announcing-bring-your-own-storage-to-app-service/)

    But the two don't appear to work together, and behave mutually exclusive! The custom-id is prohibited when WEBSITESENABLEAPPSERVICESTORAGE is set to true because it complains "Bind mount must start with ${WEBAPPSTORAGEHOME}".

    Use case (1): I want to use AppServices ZipDeploy or FTP to…

  13. Protect sensitive variables in Kudu explorer by default

    Kudu process explorer exposes raw values of connections strings with passwords and environment variables via /api/processes/ and /api/settings.
    I think they should be masked or encrypted by default.

  14. 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…

  15. Store Certificates under the corresponding Blades

    When a Certificate is purchased or added, it is stored inside the Key Vault under the "Secrets"
    The same blade, when importing a secret, says that said function is disabled.
    Would it be possible to store the certificates in their corresponding blade?

  16. [Linux] In "Drupal on Linux Web App with MySQL" it doesn't allow you to use local on instance DB but template states it have local MYSQL DB

    Either the template is having some issues or it's wrongly stated in the template and local MySQL DB is not available in this template.
    In either case, you need to correct either the template or template description.

  17. Web App Access Restriction add access from another app service

    would be be nice if there was an option to select app services from the Type list when adding a new rule that would allow or deny service A to call service B.

    This would allow the ability to lock down some API's that shouldn't be accessed from the outside world unless allowed to do so explicitly by IP but giving access to it from other app services, it also gives control to allow access to certain app services in your subscription and not others.
