  1. Provide a real support for integrating Web Apps with resources inside a virtual network

    The current implementation of Vnet integration with Web Apps is nowhere near good enough.
    1. ASE's: ASE's are fine, but the extreme cost makes it completely unrealistic to use the feature except for very large sites.
    2. Point-to-Site Vnets: If my vnet is an Expressroute vnet then I have no way to connecto to it using this feature

    We need a well-working and easy way of integrating webapps with vnets. The optimal solution would be a simple "yes/no" for giving the web app an ip address inside the virtual network.

  2. Add button to copy Prod to Staging slot instead of swap

    When we deploy by using 'swap' the deployment slot will have an old version of the website. Since we want to use the deployment slot as a staging website, it would be great if we could copy the primary website to a deployment slot, without performing a swap.

  3. 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,

  4. 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?

  5. 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,
    Oded

  6. 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.

  7. 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")

  8. 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?

  9. [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

  10. allow developers to specify the url that the alwayson pinger uses.

    Not much more to say. Let me tell you guys what url the alwayson pinger should hit. This keeps me from having to deal with the default url it hits by making an unused tenant in my saas application and writing url rewrite rules to deal with the url you use.
