Allow Custom URL Rewrite Handler for Database
Allow installation of a GAC custom rewrite handler for doing URL rewrites on Web Apps using a database backend.
Thanks for bringing this up once more. We will have an internal conversation again about implementing for App Service.
Bump. Crazy that there is no .htaccess support in Azure.

Having recently migrated a site from another hosting provider to Azure, I was extremely disappointed to find that this feature wasn't already available (having written a web.config file due to the lack of .htaccess support) .
The equivalent in Apache Hosting (.htaccess - RewriteMap - dbd And fastdbd) is widely supported by numerous hosting companies.
