Web Apps

Web Apps in Azure App Service provide a scalable, reliable, and easy-to-use environment for hosting web applications. Select from a range of frameworks and templates to create a web site in seconds. Use any tool or OS to develop your site with .NET, PHP, Node.js or Python. Choose from a variety of source control options including TFS, GitHub, and BitBucket to set up continuous integration and develop as a team.

  1. Enable HTTP/2 on Azure Web Apps

    IIS 10.0 in Windows 10 already supports HTTP/2, Azure Web Apps should support it as well.

    • SSH for Azure App Services for Linux

      Support SSH access under the application user with access to the app $HOME directory.

      This would help with troubleshooting, as well as interesting deployment scenarios like Mina or Capistrano.

      • More stronger App service machines

        Please add more performance options like VMs for App service apps. I need more stronger machines under App services like DS2 VMs (faster CPU + SSD for example). Please add options to select stronger machines under App services.

          • Return 40x for "http://....azurewebsites.net/:"

            Return 40x for "http://....azurewebsites.net/:"

            When we request a WebApps URL adding ":" in it's tail, we will get HTTP 500.19 error. It should return HTTP 40x (400 Bad request or 404 Not found) as same as OnPremiss IIS.

            I have concern about this response has a server header and we can't remove it. And also this can trigger Alert rule and/or AutoHealing rule for HTTP 500 from the outside.

            Additional info: we could not change this behavior with any settings (RequestFiltering, URLRewrite and so on). FREB shows that this error comes from IIS Web Core as the following.

            • Re-enable Webjobs in ILB-ASE

              It's really frustrating that the Webjobs option is greyed out in the portal for all our Web Apps that are in an ILB-ASE and that they are not accessible with our Azure credentials. We now have to create the url manually (https://portal.azure.com/#resource/subscriptions/<subscription-id>/resourceGroups/<resourcegroup-name>/providers/Microsoft.Web/sites/<webapp-name>/webJobs) for every Web App before we can access the Web Job! When we finally have the right URL we have to use the credentials from the publish settings to get access to the specific Web Job, because the Azure credentials won't allow access. This really can't be best practice as we use RBAC to control access…

                • 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.

                  • Ability to have Primary/Secondary setup that stays in sync

                    The ability to setup an Azure Websites plan (VM) and have it replicate to another plan (VM) in another region (or multiple regions) would be great. And keep any changes made in sync (similar to how Websites keeps any auto scaled servers in the same region in sync now). Additionally, if could use traffic manager to balance domains between regions in this setup. Say have "primary" server in East and "secondary" in South Central with domains A.com and B.com. Ability with this setup to configure traffic manager so A.com routed to east/primary and B.com to secondary/south central with the other…

                            • 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!

                                  • Azure scheduled backup datetime is wrong on Firefox

                                    Setting the backup time for a scheduled backup in Firefox incorrectly creates a backup with the wrong timezone offset applied. This was tested on four different devices with fresh browser installs. Chrome and Edge do not have this issue.

                                    Please see attached image for example.

                                    Tested with Firefox 49.0.2

                                    • Add Azure WebJob in Visual studio should have support for console applications written in F#

                                      I as money other is using F# more and more to write all types of applications, and now I've come to webjobs. It is possible to deploy F# console applications but you have to add the webjob-publish-setting.json file and the relevant nuget packages manually. This should be supported in the "Add Webjobs" dialogue. As it is now you can only add regular C# console applications, but it is no reason this limit exist since F# console applications works just as fine.

                                      • First-Class Support for Composer and PIP

                                        Azure Websites supports NuGet and NPM as first party package managers. It would be nice to see first class support for Composer, a PHP package manager, on Azure Websites to make PHP consistent with the rest of the platform.

                                        Here is an example of how to support Composer: https://github.com/syntaxc4-msft/waws-composer

                                        While the exercise should be fairly straight forward, it would also be nice to support pip on the platform as well to make sure that there is a consistent story for all supported languages.
