  1. Auto-Scaling Up on Deployment

    When deploying our app service, we need to build some javascript and CSS bundles. Building these bundles is a CPU-intensive process and it would be great to be able to auto-scale up our App Service Plan or have the bundles built on a specialized machine that was pay per minute.

    Our current App Service Plan is oversized for running our application, but we have it sized up just to handle the build process (which still takes ~20 mins). We would like to use an even more powerful machine to build the bundles and then switch to a weaker machine to…

  2. CI/CD to a function through an azure container registry is broken.

    I have an azure function that lives in a docker container. I have configured a github action to push the container to an Azure container registry, and then I have enabled my azure function to automatically pull the latest image in the registry, using the CI/CD settings. When I do this, I select my azure container registry from the pulldown menu, but then the function app truncates the azurecr.io from the name of the container registry and tries to pull a non-existent image from docker.io instead, with the name of my azure container registry. This is clearly a bug, please…

  3. conflict error

    When deploying an ARM template the error:

    [{'code':'Conflict','message':'{\r\n \'status\': \'Failed\',\r\n \'error\': {\r\n \'code\': \'ResourceDeploymentFailure\',\r\n \'message\': \'The resource operation completed with terminal provisioning state 'Failed'.

    It would be great if the conflicting resource could be identified from the error message.

  4. Allow mounting Azure Storage Account in Web Apps for Containers through ARM

    The ARM template for an Azure Web App for Containers with a AzureFiles mount shows an azureStorageAccounts object in the siteConfig. However, attempting to deploy this fails with a Bad Request. Please enable support for mounting file shares through ARM to avoid requiring separate deployment and file share mounting steps.

  5. Allow more than one App to be assigned the same Custom Domain

    When assigning a custom domain or wildcard custom domain to a second web app in the same resource group the system blocks the use of a domain (or wildcard domain) that is already being used by an app in the same resource group.

    In a multi-tenant environment, where our customers define custom domains, we manage redirects to particular environments (preview vs primary for example) with DNS.

    We can't do this if we can't assign the same wildcard domains to more than one web application.

    We are forced to deploy these to separate resource groups

  6. When cloning an app service and creating a new App insight have the new destination App Service use the new App Insights

    Currently when you clone an App Service and you specify to create a new App Insights resource the destination App Service will retain the original App Insight resource due to the "Clone Settings, App Settings" toggle being turned on to Yes. Even with this "off" the App Insight is not automatically paired with new App Service.

    It can be fixed by manually changing the insights but it requires a reboot which is can often occur when a Service has gone live, therefore, leading to Downtime for that new Service.

    Having it attached at the point of the cloned app service…

  7. Portal support for installing an SSL certificate direct from Key Vault

    In an ARM template I can install my SSL certificate direct from Key Vault, by adding a "Microsoft.Web/certificates" resource.

    The Azure portal equivalent is to download the PFX from Key Vault to my computer, and upload it back to portal in the App Service SSL Binding blade. And lookup the password from wherever I saved it, and type it.

    It would be more secure and more convenient if I could just enter the Key Vault and secret name on the SSL Bindings blade. I wouldn't even need access to the Key Vault myself. The ARM provider works because the "Microsoft…

  8. Using both managed identity and azure active directory authentication results in duplicate service principals with the same display name

    When each of these technologies is enabled, azure creates two service principals in azure AD with the same display name. This causes issues with assigning access to app service managed identity throughout azure as other services (such as SQL Server) will fail to assign access due to the duplicate service principal display name.

    In the portal, you can select a custom service principal name to be created for azure active directory authentication to work around this issue, but this is not part of the azure resource manager template schema. In ARM, we can only assign an existing or create one…

  9. Add support for existing azure devops project for deployment center github repo

    When you create a new deployment for a github repo from the deployment center on the third step you are only offered the chance to create a new project in azure devops and not the option to use an existing project. This is not practical at all and makes it useless for our repos hosted on github.

  10. 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.

  12. [Linux] Don't try to run Docker container after failed pull operation

    Currently App Service would run and fail after unsuccessful pull operation (e.g. triggered by a change to linuxfsversion).

    BTW, pull fails for newly created App Service (using Terraform), it seems that linuxfxversion triggers pull without DOCKERREGISTRYSERVER_* application settings, after 4 minutes it successfully retries and pulls the image.

  14. AppOffline support for all WebApps(including Java)

    Currently ARM Template Deployment ( New-AzureRmResourceGroupDeployment ) won't put the site offline, and sometimes runs into FILEINUSE error and deployment failure.

    MSDeploy supports 'AppOffline' but it is only for .net Apps.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/iis/publish/deploying-application-packages/taking-an-application-offline-before-publishing

    We would like to have the same option for all WebApps (including Java).

  15. Store Certificates under the corresponding Blades

    When a Certificate is purchased or added, it is stored inside the Key Vault under the "Secrets"
    The same blade, when importing a secret, says that said function is disabled.
    Would it be possible to store the certificates in their corresponding blade?

  17. 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.

  19. Include Azure Pipelines as a Build Provider in future versions of Deployment Center

    When configuring Azure Repos as the source in the GA version of the Deployment Center, we prompt to select either 'Kudu' or 'Azure Pipelines (Preview)' as the build provider.

    The latter option automatically generates Pipelines in Azure DevOps, and can be seen as nice convenience feature.

    Deployment Center (Preview) does not allow this option; it currently only offers 'Kudu' as the build provider, when used with Azure Repos.

    We are aware that it is an option to create pipelines manually from Azure DevOps, but this feature streamlines the experience. It is particularly useful for quick proof-of-concepts.

    We'd like to request…

It will be great if I don't need to worry about composer or pip or virtual environment. I push my app using git or from my repository, Azure App Service should auto detect my language and all the packages and install them on the fly, including root directories and environment variables. Also, web.config should be scrapped out entirely or auto-configured. {Heroku detects my php / Laravel and do all the configurations for…

    Have you tried looking into App Service hosted on Linux:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service/containers/app-service-linux-intro

    While the deployment won’t pull all your dependencies, you can still used a blessed image for your stack and even containerize your solution and host them on Linux.

    One more item to look at is the new CLI “up” command we have for creating apps. You can check the quick session we had at Microsoft Ignite about this feature:
    https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/66652

    We’ll leave this under review to see if there are any improvements to our deployment that will happen as part of Linux hosting.

    Thanks,
    Oded
