  1. Enable 'Connect', 'Log Stream', 'Console' etc for App Service Environment

    When you deploy an App Service into an App Service Environment behind an ILB, much of the UI is greyed out. Examples of this is the 'Connect' button, 'Log Stream', 'Console' etc.

    I have to manually construct a URL to get to the kudu endpoint right now in order to use the console.

    • Use IIS manager to administrate web app

      Before we could use IIS manager to administrate web app.

      Remote Administration of Windows Azure Websites using IIS Manager
      https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/remote-administration-of-windows-azure-websites-using-iis-manager/

      But around year end of 2017, we got error like below.

      ---------------------------
      Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager
      ---------------------------
      Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Web.Configuration.AppHostFileProvider, Version=8.5.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
      ---------------------------

      I tried sometimes, but this problem isn't resolved yet.
      I hope this problem will be fixed.

        Thank you for bringing this up. We are aware of the issue that the capability to manage apps through the IIS manager is currently not available since the move of App Service to WS2016.

        We don’t have a timeline of when we will be able to complete the work to re-enable, but we will update when there is more to share.

        Thanks,
        Oded

      • DNS resolution is not working in Azure Web App for Containers (linux)

        DNS resolution is not working in Web App for Containers (linux) when using custom docker image. The DHCP generated resolv.conf is broken. After using SSH to log in to the container trying nslookup google.com also fails with DNS resolution error.

        See my sample project for more details:

        https://github.com/henkosch/azure-webapp-dnstest

        The problem is also mentioned in the comments section on this page:

        https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service/containers/app-service-linux-faq

        Does anyone have an idea how to fix this?

        • Allow access to certificate stores

          As of today, you can't programatically install your own certificates (e.g. read from App_Data and Add(..) to store) to the Root or CertificateAuthority stores. This is seen in the LocalMachine as well as CurrentUser certificate store location. The PaaS responds with a "CryptographicException: Access is denied." which is bizarre because non-basic plan customers are paying for the entire underlying VM. Even on the basic plan you should allow this but restrict it to the CurrentUser store location since the VM/IIS could be shared with other cloud customers.

          As of now, you can only access the "My" store which is a…

          • Scale Out wait for WarmUp complete before being added to LoadBalancer

            When adding new instances to the LoadBalancer, scale out mechanism doesn't wait for those application instances to fully warm up.

            Availability checker, via AppInsights, logs these responses, with the header:
            'X-AppInit-WarmingUp: 1'

            Which means that IIS knows that the application is in it's WarmUp cycle, but the LoadBalancer is already trying to serve requests.

            N.B. we _can_ add a rewrite rule to redirect the user to the original request, and hope that the LoadBalancer sends the user to a ready instance - but this feels like a hack.

            • allow empty collection as a value of Set-AzureRmWebApp -AppSettings parameter

              Attempting to clear AppSettings using
              Set-AzureRmWebApp -ResourceGroupName $resourceGroupName -Name $name -AppSettings @{}
              fails the validation. I believe this is a bug because it should be possible to clear all AppSettings this way.

              • Allow us to remove the Zend Extension "opcache" from the default php.ini file

                When you run PHP 5.5+ in an Azure website, the opcache Zend Extension is automatically enabled as the first Zend extension in the php.ini file.

                "[ExtensionList]
                ...
                zend_extension=php_opcache.dll"

                Any other Zend extension we add is appended after opcache.

                Since this file is read-only, you cannot remove this extension.

                This conflicts with other Zend extensions like ioncube, which require themselves to be the first extension loaded.

                Please allow us to choose whether the opcache extension is enabled in php.ini OR give us a way to remove it WITHOUT running a custom PHP runtime of our own.

                I'd much rather you manage…

                • "HTTPS Only" Setting Should Be Inherited With Configuration In Deploy Slot

                  We've set up a custom domain and purchased and installed security certificates. Everything works great for https, and we've switched on HTTPS Only in the Custom domain panel for our production slot.

                  Then, we created a new build with new features we developed in the latest sprint, created a new deploy slot, checked the box for the deploy slot to inherit its configuration settings from production, and... the HTTPS Only setting is switched to off, regardless of inheriting configuration settings.

                  We switch HTTPS Only back on in the deploy slot, go through our upload. When we swap the deploy slot…

                  • The overwritten data in Connection stringsis not reflected in Backup Configuration.

                    When we choose the Backup Database from Backup configure after The connection strings is overwritten.There is a bug.That doesn't seen to have problem.
                    Using the DevTools(F12),make sure sending datas. The overwritten data in Connection strings of Application setting is not reflected .
                    we have to delete the data once and add new data to avoid this bug and update new data in application setting.

                    • REST API shouldn't return 0 when it doesn't have the actual data

                      Calling the REST API to get CPU or memory usage of an app service plan, if you ask for it in the last minute it can return 0 to you, when a few minutes later it will return the actual value for the same time, it seems it takes a while for the real data to be available to the API, however I think it's wrong to return incorrect data, it should not return a value until it has the real value.
