  1. App service high disk queue length

    We have observed high app service disk queue length while testing an application hosted on App service plan . As per investigation along with the microsoft support engineer, it has been identified that the disk queue length metric has always been aggregated as a sum (Total) for the samples captured from a worker. So any small change in this metric on the worker will cause this to spike rapidly. Also multiple workers will additionally cause this counter to grow even faster. In short, this is not an actual reflection of the actual disk queue length at any point in time…

  2. Show metrics of different unit in the web app blade

    In the Azure Portal web app blade, we can show metrics of "CPU time", "Data In", "Http Errors", and so on.
    However, we can only choose the metrics which the unit is same at the same time.
    For example, we can choose "Average Response Time" and "CPU time" at the same time, but we can't choose "Http Server Errors".
    We wan't to choose metrics of different unit at the same time.

  3. Copy the application log settings when cloning deployment slots

    It would be better if the log settings are copied into a newly created slot, when we clone a slot, just like the app settings does.
    For example, currently when we turn the blob logging enabled and then clone the slot, the logging get disabled in a new slot.
    On the contrary, the blob container settings remains.

    This is because the blob container setting is saved as an environment variable in app settings.
    Here is the result in ResourceExplorer, when I cloned a slot.

    "applicationLogs": {
    
    "fileSystem": {
    "level": "Off"
    },
    "azureTableStorage": {
    "level": "Off",

  4. localcache

    Better error messages when slot swaps fail due to issues with the application size exceeding the configured local cache size. Currently the only error is :

    'Failed swapping site. Error: Cannot swap slots for site '***' because the worker process for 'staging' slot could not be started’

    which gives no real insight into the actual failure.

  5. [Linux] Add some container orchestration features to App Service to provide high density

    Azure App Service is the Easy Button for app deployment and hosting, whereas Service Fabric and containers add significant complexity. However, Service Fabric and containers scale much more efficiently. It would be amazing if you could add some basic container orchestration features in a way that would make App Service the Easy Button for container-based deployments, including high density. I realize this is a challenging request, but like I said, it would be amazing!

    Thanks!

  6. Support original and country code top level domains

    Please extend support for purchasing domains beyond (com, net, co.uk, org, nl, in, biz, org.uk, and co.in) to all original and country code top level domains (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ListofInternettop-leveldomains) or at least a wider list of possibilities.

    Domain ownership costs then can be managed on the same subscription bill rather than needing to purchase current unsupported domains (such as .com.au) via a seperate registrar

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the feedback!

    We are looking into various TLDs to add to App Service domains based on customer feedback and usage. Do keep in mind some country based TLDs requires specific constraints that can limit us from onboarding it to our product.

    Thanks,
    Sunitha

  7. Enable Docker Content Trust on Linux ASE

    Now that Notary/Content Trust in available in ACR, it would be useful if it could also be enabled in the ASE so it could only pull signed images.

    I can't see a way to currently do this - is it possible?

  9. Please display a warning message that the main app will be stopped meanwhile the restoring process (snapshot preview) is taking effect.

    Snapshots can be restored to the original web app, a slot of the web app, or any other web app in the same App Service Plan. While the restore operation is in progress, the web app will be stopped. It is strongly recommended to restore snapshots to a new slot instead of overwriting an existing slot in order to prevent data loss if the restore operation is unsuccessful.
    Snapshots contain both web app files and web app settings. You can choose to restore files only, or to restore the settings as well. All settings contained in regular backups are also…

  10. Enable access to server config (e.g., mimeType) via Website portal

    Need to be able to provide mimeType spec for extensions not supported by IIS out of the box, notably .svg for non-asp.net websites (e.g., HTML5). Right now, the website returns a 404 error for any svg image requested by the site, and the online solutions are all about web.config which doesn't affect non-asp.net sites as far as I know (and breaks the HTML5 site anyway). My example - polymer.azurewebsites.net

  12. Allow for easier IP-restriction management on Azure WebApps (Advanced edit)

    Please make it so that we have a more convenient way to manage IP-restrictions on Azure WebApps. At the moment of writing IP's can only be added 1 by 1 manually or via an Azure PowerShell script.

    It would be a great change if you could make it like the Advanced Edit option that's available for Application Settings.

  13. Support Azure AD V2.0 Authentication for Function Apps

    I have a client application that would like to access a secured function app. The client application is getting a JWT bearer token from the Azure AD 2.0 endpoint.

    In the authentication section of the App Service there is no way to add applications registered with the AD v2.0 endpoint.

  14. Improve the SSL Settings interface

    (1)Add alerts or warnings when a certificate is about to expire.
    (2)Change the font color on certificates that are soon to expire.
    (3)Combine the list for certificate and binding into a 2 column list so it is easier to see that you have the correct certificate bound. It is time consuming to continuously scroll up and down to match thumbprints.

    SSL/TLS certificates are becoming a required element on the web today. I think it is time to improve this interface.

  15. Generate internally-issued certificates

    There should be a way to generate internally-issued certificates for ASE so ASE's have no legacy-dependency. Currently one has to have CA running in a VM to generate that for the domain.

  16. [Linux] Web App for Containers set latest pushed tag as the container image

    When a new tag is pushed to container repository the web app should be able to pick up the latest pushed tag and set it as the running image. This can be given as a switch setting (checkbox).Currently you are pointing the image at a specific tag.

  17. Audit file system on WebApps and log to Blob

    Audit file system to detect malicious file changing.

    Recently we experience intrusion into a Wordpress site on WebApp.
    There was a malicious "favicon.ico" icon file.
    We are investigating a feature to detect these type of malicious manipulation.

    Currently exploring all files at every job is needed to detect, but it is not efficient because we update this site NOT frequently.

    If WebApps have auditing file system and log to Blob,
    we can create custom alert rules with Azure Functions easily.

    This is also an alternative way for implementing antimalware feature: https://feedback.azure.com/forums/169385-web-apps/suggestions/17919064-antimalware-feature-on-web-apps-app-service

  19. Optionally stop the web app while backing up

    Some of my web apps have embedded databases that block the files they use. That prevents the backup from storing them (well, it actually stores a 0 byte file instead). This is not a big handicap if I make the backups manually, because I know the issue and I stop the web apps manually, but if I want to automate the backup I can't because almost always these files are locked...

    One possible solution would be to add an option in the backup configuration to stop the web app before running and start it again after it has finished.

    Thanks!

  20. 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,
    Oded
