  1. Azure webapps, sort the application settings

    I would like the application settings section of the Azure webapp (and any other Azure resource) to have a default alphabetical sort, or even better, to be able to configure the order of the key/value pairs displayed.

    This would improve application management where keys need to be readily identified (e.g. Client secret keys which need to be renewed).
    The current portal simply appends the last created setting to the bottom, which means that developers and sysadmins have to be very fastidious around knowing the full extent of app settings to begin with.

    Thanks!

    • Install 64 bit dotnet.exe runtime

      I have a memory intensive webjob that uses dotnet.exe and needs to run in 64 bit mode. But the dotnet.exe currently installed is 32 bit.

      Is there an easy way to change this to 64 bit? Or can the 64 bit dotnet.exe be installed by default?

        • Make Application Gateway WAF services available for non-ASE App Service plans

          The Application Gateway and specifically WAF are useful even for simpler apps because of the OWASP and general security protections afforded.

          App Service Environments are extremely costly compared to a loaded Standard S1 or Premium P1 App Service plan and the Application Gateway/WAF cannot be used without the ASE.

          While there are WAF solutions provided by 3rd parties it would be great if the Azure solution used for ASE's was also available for standard App Service plans.

          Thanks

            You can configure a web app from the multi-tenant app service to work with the App Gateway as described here. http://docs.microsoft.com/azure/application-gateway/application-gateway-web-app-powershell
            Your app will still be internet accessible unless you also use IP Restrictions (app → Networking → IP Restrictions) to lock down access to just coming from the App GW.
            Since there are still improvements we are going to make here it is marked as planned even though you should be able to use it now.
            Is it the same as an ASE? No. The ASE is a deployment of the App Service in your VNet. It’s hard to beat that from the multi-tenant App Service. Still, the aforementioned method should get you started.

          • Allow adding same custom domains from my other subscription

            Currently it is not possible to add custom domain to web apps in different subscriptions.

            e.g. West EU and North EU deployment in different subscriptions.

            Error : The host name "domain" is already assigned to another Azure website.

            • performance test can't be turned off

              Only way to disable performance test after deployment is to delete the deployment source and readd it.

                • DNS resolution is not working in Azure Web App for Containers (linux)

                  DNS resolution is not working in Web App for Containers (linux) when using custom docker image. The DHCP generated resolv.conf is broken. After using SSH to log in to the container trying nslookup google.com also fails with DNS resolution error.

                  See my sample project for more details:

                  https://github.com/henkosch/azure-webapp-dnstest

                  The problem is also mentioned in the comments section on this page:

                  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service/containers/app-service-linux-faq

                  Does anyone have an idea how to fix this?

                  • Linux / Docker for ASE

                    We are using ASE and would like to deploy Web Apps using docker containers with linux to be able to run NodeJS applications on Azure.

                    For now, with our configuration, there is a limitation => we can only deploy NodeJS applications on Windows with IIS, not docker/linux.

                    We need linux too ! <3

                      • IPv6 - Create IP Restrictions

                        I would like the ability to create IPv6 restrictions for the web application. We're using a proxy in front of the web apps and it will pass traffic over both IPv4 and IPv6. We've setup the IPv4 restrictions to ensure everything is flowing through the proxy to get to the website but we're now having to disable IPv6 due to the limitation of Azure's inability to write IPv6 rules.

                          • Add build system for app service on linux

                            I use App service on Linux with dotnet core container.

                            Currently, deploy to app service on Linux is git push or ftp.

                            Deploy by FTP is non secure, so i want to use git.

                            But, it is not build at time of git push, I have to commit artifacts to Git.

                            So i would like to add a system to run the build at git push.

                                We are currently working on some new MySQL SKUs with our partner. Will update as they release.

                              • allow empty collection as a value of Set-AzureRmWebApp -AppSettings parameter

                                Attempting to clear AppSettings using
                                Set-AzureRmWebApp -ResourceGroupName $resourceGroupName -Name $name -AppSettings @{}
                                fails the validation. I believe this is a bug because it should be possible to clear all AppSettings this way.

                                  • web apps backup alarm

                                    We have a lot of web apps with daily schedulled backup. We need to be able to set up an alarm to know when a backup fails

                                    • The overwritten data in Connection stringsis not reflected in Backup Configuration.

                                      When we choose the Backup Database from Backup configure after The connection strings is overwritten.There is a bug.That doesn't seen to have problem.
                                      Using the DevTools(F12),make sure sending datas. The overwritten data in Connection strings of Application setting is not reflected .
                                      we have to delete the data once and add new data to avoid this bug and update new data in application setting.
