How can we improve Azure Web Apps?

Restart App Service Plan (all Web Apps in a plan), something similar to iisreset, from within the portal

It would be great to have a restart button, similar to the restart button in a Web App, but on the App Service Plan level to restart all Web Apps in a plan. something similar to iisreset.

    Hi Ibrahim,

    What issue are you trying to solve? What use case would this be used for?

    It seems to me that placing a restart option on the plan level might do more harm than good, by resetting the memory on all the apps under the plan. Depending on your scenario, auto-heal would be a great solution to solve individual machine issues. See a video by my colleagues here for more details: https://channel9.msdn.com/Series/Windows-Azure-Web-Sites-Tutorials/Auto-Healing-an-Azure-App-Service

    Placing this idea under review for now until I understand what’s at the base of the request here.

    Thanks!

        Hi Oded,

        Thanks for your prompt reply. I am aware of auto-heal and it is being used. It is a great feature when something goes wrong with one of the Web Apps.
        On the other hand, for maintenance reasons (say after publishing a new version of the web apps), we need to recycle all application pools and clear IIS cache. I think it would a great addition to the portal for application maintenance.

        Many thanks,
        Ibrahim
