Make a custom authentication option that works with the gateway
Not all solution can use AD or social providers. Very often a custom username/password is needed too. It would be very nice to have a custom authentication option in Azure API Apps that works with the gateway and the whole pipeline as the other authentication options already do.
Thank you for your feedback!
This functionality has now been exposed through Easy Auth https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/articles/app-service-mobile-dotnet-backend-how-to-use-server-sdk/#custom-auth

I really need this option. Is it in the works?

We're also really in the need for this custom authentication before we're able to use the Azure API App.
Must have before I can use this service!
I'd like to see this feature as well. I think it should have been provided already.

+2. I have also suggested support for certificate authentication, along the lines of the Management API:

+1. Custom authentication should be built in. Not every app uses AAD or social provider logins.
We also have had problems implementing custom authentication with the ApiApp.
The gateway seems to completely knacker CORs requests, and we've had to return to hosting the ApiApp as a WebApp instead of Azure API App until it woks properly...
