  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. Hybrid Connection settings lost on slot creation but included in slot swap

    Summary:
    When creating a new slot for an existing Web App, the Hybrid Connections are not copied to the created slot despite 'Configuration Source' being set to the production app, which has Hybrid Connections configured.

    This is a problem because slot swap operations DO include the Hybrid Connection configurations. Therefore in order to deploy using a new staging slot, one must reconfigure the Hybrid Connections each time before doing the final swap into production.

    Our particular use-case is that we are setting up an automated deployment process and would like the process to first recreate the staging slot by deleting…

  6. Keyvault IP Restriction not working

    We have Function app using App service plan(not ASE). We have done vnet integration for function app. We are retrieving App Setting parameter using keyvault. We have discover below limitation.

    1. For Function App-- Application setting , it is not using private IP. Call is made from Function App's Data node's outbound Public IP. Which defeat purpose of having vnet integration

    2. We were told by Microsoft, Function App's data nodes IP may not used whichever shows in Outbound IP of function app in future. Thus we cannot restrict keyvault using Function app's public IP.

    It appears that, there is…

  7. Please fix services referring to the old resource group

    Via CLI or Azure portal, whenever I move resources (like App Services) from existing resource group to a new resource group. Some references still refer to the old resource group. For example, for adding custom domain to a Web App Service, I get error that “XYZ” (the old resource group) is missing! Every time, I need to create a ticket and get support team involve for help. Finally, Kenneth Fallas (Tek Experts) (one of the Azure support team members), educated me that I can do the cleanup by myself by going through https://resources.azure.com. Can you please fix this issue?

  8. 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.

  9. |BUG| creating a new slot and copy setting from exsiting resets IP restrictions subnet to /32

    As above, I used the feature to create a new slot and copy settings to the new slot and then I spent a good hour trying to figure out why I was unable to access the website. This feature copies the IP addresses but resets all the subnets to /32. This is a pain to fix if you have a lot of IP address restrictions in place.

  10. .NET Core memory-based autoheal broken

    Memory based autoheal for .NET Core apps seems to have broken around the time the autoheal settings moved to the portal (from the SCM site) - if it ever worked at all. It seems it only checks memory of the w3wc process, but not child processes.

  13. 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.

  14. Allow for Web app backups to fetch changed connection string without having to reset or modify the backup schedule

    When we restore a new database and modify the connection strings in the Web App Application Settings, the Backup configuration does not pick up this change. We require to modify or reset the Backup configuration for the scheduled backups to be taken successfully.
    Can you please resolve this? Once the connection string is updated on the Web App, would be good that the scheduled backup job picks up this change.

  16. BUG: Application Pool PATH variable includes wrong path for git

    The Application Pool configuration Path variable includes the following for git, however the 64 bit version is actually installed. This means that the application cannot use Git without referencing the full path (which in my case is impractical).

    "D:\\Program Files (x86)\\Git\\cmd"

    Path variable should refer to:

    "D:\\Program Files\\Git\\cmd"

  17. Bug: Deployment Slot Log Streaming Not Displaying Traces

    I've run into a bit of a problem with the log streaming on a deployment slot.

    I have an app service with a deployment slot. When I turn on `Application Logging (FileSystem)` on the slot, the log stream for the slot still reports:
    "Application logs are switched off. You can turn them on using the 'Diagnostic logs' settings."

    If I go to the main app service for that slot and turn on `Application Logging (FileSystem)` there, the log stream for the main app service display traces correctly. Also, when I go back to the slot log stream, it now says: …

  19. Support Always On when Authentication required

    When an App Service is configured to require authentication (with AAD at least, haven't tried with other providers) and no Anonymous requests then it appears that the Always On "pings" will get intercepted and rejected (401.71 Unauthorized). Such configurations should be supported for Always On.
