  1. Web App should use private IP in a VNet with Service Endpoints

    Remove the limitation that prevents us from using Web Apps with Service Endpoints to limit access to Azure SQL database.

    Limitation is described here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/sql-database/sql-database-vnet-service-endpoint-rule-overview?toc=%2fazure%2fvirtual-network%2ftoc.json#limitations
    "•A Web App can be mapped to a private IP in a VNet/subnet. Even if service endpoints are turned ON from the given VNet/subnet, connections from the Web App to the server will have an Azure public IP source, not a VNet/subnet source. To enable connectivity from a Web App to a server that has VNet firewall rules, you must Allow all Azure services on the server."

      Hi all,

      We are currently working on items that will enable service endpoints for multi-tenant App service. We will share the news of the features we deliver on the App Service Blog here: aka.ms/AppServiceBlog.

      We also expect to speak about this topic at the Ignite conference in September in Orlando.

      Thanks,
      Oded

    • Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) Stapling

      We are seeing some delays in Time To First Byte because OCSP stapling is not active on Azure Web Apps SSL endpoints.
      This causes our clients' browsers to call the issuing CA's endpoint before SSL negotiation can really begin.

      Stapling would save the client browser from having to make an extra request to the CA checking if the certificate has been revoked.

      There is also a potential privacy issue for our clients that the CA will be able to log these requests. If the web server takes care of OCSP on the other hand no requests will be sent from…

        We’ve started deploying the feature to a small set of stamps. We’ll continue to monitor the stamps for performance and validate if the feature is working as expected. Once we are confident there are no issues, we will roll out to all regions.

        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?

        • Enable VNET integration for App Service on Linux without ASE

          I would really appreciate it to be able to use the VNet integration and hybrid connections for Linux App service without needing to multiply my costs by paying for an app service environment just for one app service.

          Here is a similar idea, but it got resolved because of ASE. I think however there should be a solution without ASE.

          • Support Availability Zones for App Service Environment

            With Azure SQL and Storage having zone redundant capabilities and Application Gateway in preview, App Service Environment is soon to be the only thing keeping us from fully PaaS, zone redundant web applications.

            • Automatically rebind SSL Certs that have Auto-Renew

              Right now there is a way to purchase and Auto-Renew SSL-Certs for Web Apps. Unfortunately, the Auto-Renew does _NOT_ also bind the new cert to the WebApps where the cert it is replacing is currently bound to.

              This makes Auto-Renew more or less useless, as one still has to manually bind the new cert once it becomes available.

              A cert with Auto-Renew should automatically bind to all WebApps where the cert it replaces is used.

                Hi Thomas,

                Some feedback from our team:

                We do not update the SSL binding on rare cases, and we do have the code working just that it happens on a different task. This is definitely a bug we will be fixing as soon as we can. Most likely will be dealt with in June.

                Thanks,

              • Display slots should list their full name in the resource lists.

                When you are viewing resources in the "All Resources" blade or in the "Resource Group" blade all slots are just listed using only their slot name, if you have many different web apps that all use slots you will see the same name repeated several times (see "Example Resource Group.PNG").

                I suggest you display the name from the resources blade the same way you display it in the delete menu if you are deleting the base web app "BaseName-SlotName" (See "delete example.PNG")

                • [Azure web app LINUX] VSTS deploy to slot

                  Currently I am using VSTS for my CI/CD to azure web app linux
                  However, unfortunately, there's still a pretty significant downtime for every deployment.

                  I tried to create a staging slot to minimize the downtime, and swap to production. however, VSTS doesn't allow me to deploy to my staging slot.

                  I created a github issues too here https://github.com/Microsoft/vsts-tasks/issues/4460

                  If I can't deploy to my slot, what's the point of having slot in the first place? Please prioritize this as I think this is a pretty important feature

                  • Install odbc driver in Python Stack images

                    I created a new Web app with Python 3.7 runtime. I created and deployed a python script, using pyodbc.
                    A query on my Azure SQL database results in an error that it can not find the drivers to connect to Microsoft Sql Server:

                    2018-11-12T15:37:56.956170588Z File "/home/site/wwwroot/apps/download.py", line 7, in <module>
                    2018-11-12T15:37:56.956174588Z import pyodbc
                    2018-11-12T15:37:56.956178388Z ImportError: libodbc.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

                    Is it possible to have this driver in the Python Runtime Web app?

                      It would be nice if you add native sitecore site support to your azure websites. Like you have with Umbraco.
