  1. 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

    • 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?

        • 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?

            • Programmatically associating a Hybrid Connection to an Azure App Service is not possible

              I believe that there should be a capability added to Azure App Services to allow for programmatically associating existing Hybrid Connections to an App Service instance. This can be done manually via the portal as shown in the attached image but cannot be done via Powershell, Azure CLI, or Azure REST API. Any upcoming features for this? Or is this already possible but I haven't yet been able to find out how? Thank you.

                  • 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.

                        planned  ·  Nir Mashkowski responded

                        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.

                        • Enable Azure Web App's Console, Extensions, Log Stream, Process Explorer features in App Service Environment (ASE)

                          Hi
                          Long back in Feb 2017, an user raised an issue regarding enabling Console, Extensions, Log Stream, Process Explorer features in Azure App Service Environment (ASE) and the response from MS team was that this is a known issue and MS is working on it. But after that there was no update on this issue and it looks like that thread was not updated for a while.

                          I am still facing this issue in the Web App inside my ASE. Could you please give an update when will this feature be available inside ASE? These are all handy features in…

                              • 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.

                                  • Support SSH to specific container in multi-container setup (Compose or Kubernetes)

                                    Currently the docs (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service/containers/app-service-linux-ssh-support) only describe setting up SSH access to a single container. But what if I have a multi container setup? For example PHP-FPM with an Nginx reverse proxy.

                                    It seems the SSH access is only supported for the public facing container (in this case Nginx).

                                    It would be great if I could setup SSH access to all containers.
