    • Add Application Initialization Support for Scale Up/Down

      The application initialization/warmup feature works great when scaling out/in, but when scaling up/down requests are immediately routed to the new instances before the application is warmed up. It would be great if the new instances could be warmed up before rerouting requests to them.

      • Associating Hybrid Connections to Azure App Services cannot be automated

        There is no way to associate a Hybrid Connection to an Azure App Service via ARM Template or PowerShell.

        This is a significant gap since we cannot automate this at all when that is the driving factor for DevOps and PaaS services.

        • FTP accounts tied to subscription, not user. Not enough auditing

          In the current model, FTP credentials are tied to a user's azure login. Thus, we have no visibility into credentials that are set, as we cannot see other people's FTP credentials they've set. Furthermore, when an FTP account is created or deleted, nothing is logged. This makes it difficult to audit who has access. With the logins being tied to the user, when the user leaves, there is no way for us to reclaim that username unless they delete their ftp credentials first. This doesn't always work, as a user may depart abruptly or not on good terms. Although the…

          • Add "Allow access to Azure services" in Azure App Service IP restrictions

            Re this thread

            https://www.yammer.com/azureadvisors/#/Threads/show?threadId=945875058

            I'd used PowerShell to manually add IP restrictions a couple of weeks ago. Right away my App Insights availability tests started failing so I narrowed the test location down to Dublin IE and allowed those IP/Subnets.

            Add an option similar to SQL Server "Allow access to Azure services" That white lists Azure App insights availability tests for selected regions.

            Thanks

            Luke

              There was some confusion about this feature due to the documentation for it and UX originally released had a bug.

              The IP Restrictions feature works as an ALLOW list, rather than a DENY list as originally stated.

              The ask here is still valid, there are other services in azure (like SQL) that have UI to explicitly allow other azure services to reach the database. While this is convenient for development scenarios, it’s not a good idea for securing the resource.

              We’ll keep an eye on this request and see if it gathers more up-votes.

            • implement a graceful restart an Azure Web App with multiple instance

              We would like to have feature through which we can perform the configuration changes through portal without down time when there are multiple instances are available. The similar stuff is available in advanced restart where you can define the delay between restart of each instance.

              • Make Vnet sticky to slot

                When switching slots currently if you have a vnet on one slot and not the other, the vnet is switched between slots. As this vnet may be pointing to a testing environment on one slot and a production environment on the other slot, it would make sense to have this be a sticky setting to the slot, with the option to make it global across the app in the case that all slots will be using the same vnet.

                • Deployment Center missing capability that was in Continuous Delivery

                  Continuous Delivery was the initial capability to connect Web Apps directly to source control for automated Build and Releases. We were using this capability along with VSTS for Build and Release of projects we store in a self-hosted private BitBucket repo. With Continuous Delivery, when you selected "External GIT" for source control, you had the option to mark it as a private repo which would then present you with fields to enter credentials to the private repo.

                  Deployment Center has replaced Continuous Delivery and also supports "External GIT" for source control but the ability to mark the repo as private…

                  • App services should show the max supported version of ASP.NET core

                    If you deploy an app with a version of .NET Core that isn't deployed on Azure yet, you get horrible to debug errors that you have to enable stdout logging on to get to the bottom of.

                    (Ultimatly editing csproj with PublishWithAspNetCoreTargetManifest set to false)

                    Confusing and time consuming. It would be great if Azure showed you some where on the app, a max supported version of .NET core and some kind of publishing warning if you try to push something higher.
