How can we improve Azure Web Apps?

Add support for free SSL certs like those from Let's Encrypt

Now that the EFF and Mozilla are backing the Let's Encrypt project to provide everyone free SSL certs, it would be great if you would permit free usage of SSL certs on Azure Websites.

        This shouldn't be closed. The setup of the so called "fix" is a pain. Build something into Azure to make it easy. Why can't this simply be an option for the cert? Make this a built in feature, not a hack addon.

        Microsoft, you're taking a cheap and easy way out of this request for Let's Encrypte support. A third party app that's not integrated into the Azure Portal is hardly the solution people are looking for and requesting. With other providers like KeyCDN (at less than 1/2 the cost of Azure CDN) users get fully integrated Let's Encrypt SSL, ability to hand CDN with HTTPS over a custom domain, and various other features Azure lacks. You're a multi-billion dollar company. Please pull your thumb out and delivery these crucial CDN features.

        Please reopen this. As many before said this should be build in into Azure portal. Many hosting providers (OVH for example) allows using LetsEncrypt using two clicks. It's awesome there is an extension that help with it, but this must be build-in feature.

        That's a bit of a cop out guys.
        You should give this proper consideration.

        Please re-open. SSL should be automatically available for any custom domain added to an Azure web app.

        Community workaround is good, but it is cumbersome and difficult to setup.

        This is a step that should not take longer than a few clicks. The community extension is decent but still way too many manual steps. This is too important to ignore and should be beyond easy to setup.

        This should *not* be closed. It's a pain ********** to set up. There should be an option to use letsencrypt in the azure portal when configuring an application gateway.

        Please reopen this! It's 2017. Everything should be HTTPS. The solution should be incorporated nicely with the rest of the easy-to-use Azure features.

        This is not completed, security is not a luxusry in 2017. It should be done with the press of a button, built-in in the dashboard.

        Please re-open this? It should simply be a checkbox in the portal!
