  1. App Service SQL Server PDO Driver

    Please update SQL Server PHP PDO Driver to the 4.1.1 version by Azure App Services. Current version of PDO Driver is very outdated and still has a lot of bugs, that has been fixed 1 year ago.

    • 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.

          Thanks for you suggestion, this is actually an Azure App Service wide feature that are planning to introduce a similar functionality. Once we have such capability we will announce it and update the suggestion.

        • Stop TiP causing security warnings

          Currently Testing in Production (TiP) can be used for two purposes: A/B testing or deploying multiple versions of the same website (eg. production and staging).

          Some companies like us use TiP only for the second purpose, but as soon as we enable the feature, an additional cookie called "TiPMix" added to our website. The purpose of the cookie is enable A/B testing and help to decide which user should be randomly routed to which slot. We always route 100% of our traffic to the production slot, so no decision have to be made in our case thus we don't need…

            Hi all,

            Thank you for the feedback up the issue! We intend to make some corrections to how we display the security warnings. This shouldn’t happen too far from now though I don’t have a concrete timeline to share yet. When more info is available, I’ll update the post.

            Thanks!

          • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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 Easy Tables Support Unlimited Columns

                          So far, I am very pleased with Microsoft Azure. Previously I had used Parse, which implemented something similar in their user interface to easy tables. However, after switching to Azure I cannot see all of my columns on my table. This is because the width of the blade does not not expand to fit the table and does not provide a horizontal scroll feature such as Parse. In the images attached, notice the difference between the same table, shown on Microsoft Azure and on Parse. It is problematic to read my data through the portal. Any comments or suggestions you…

                          • 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!

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

                                  • Multi-AAD User Authentication

                                    I added AAD authentication to my mobile service which is working perfect.
                                    The problem is when I map a user which already exists in another AAD the authentication fails.

                                    Error: AADSTS70001: Application with identifier [App-ID] was not found in the directory [user's primary aad]
