  1. Option to disable FTP (and force FTPS) in Azure Web Apps

    I love the simplicity of deploying and configuring Web Apps but I would like to improve security by forcing clients to use FTPS instead of non-secure FTP.

    Being able to toggle each deployment option on/off would be great to help minimise exposure.

    • Increase the size limitation of backups from 10GB to the max size of the webapp

      We have standard S3 webapps which allow you to have 50 GB of local storage. However our backups continue to fail because our site uses 14 GB. Even after adding filters, it's almost impossible to get under the 10 GB limit, rendering backups useless for us

      • Add administrative option for disabling ftp account in webapps

        An unmanaged FTP account is a security concerns for enterprise environments. This concerns is even greater when teams have control over their own environment zuch as is the case with DevOps. Please add the possibility to centrally disable the ftp account feature of webapps.

        • in ASE disable TLS 1.1

          Allow for the disablement of TLS 1.1 protocols from ASE in a similar method as TLS 1.0. This would help secure systems further for ISVs building new API Apps and help with additional security concerns and compliance for PCI and others.

          Allowing for the same method but adding an additional JSON in cluster settings to actually trigger the TLS 1.1 disablement would be good.

          "clusterSettings": [
          {
          "name": "DisableTls1.0",
          "value": "1"
          },
          {
          "name": "DisableTls1.1",
          "value": "1"
          }
          ],

          • [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

            • Add native sitecore site support

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

                • Show the current github configured branch

                  Currently you have to use the Resource Explorer to figure out/remember which GitHub branch you had configured. This is pretty inconvenient. Even showing it in the logs would be more useful.

                  • Show Deployment Source

                    Add the ability to view the "Deployment source" settings for a Web App.
                    Example: When setting the Deployment Source for a Web App, if you select Drop Box as a source and provide a directory, the Management UI doesn't show you what directory the deployment is coming from after it has been set. It would be nice to be able to see what the directory was so you can confirm it is coming from the right directory without having to Disconnect and Reconnect the deployment source.

                    • Github deployment show repository count

                      I'm not confident that the Azure Portal deployment option with Github is pulling in all repositories in the organization. An easy way to verify that would be to display the repository count somewhere in the UI.
