  1. Hybrid Connections - Allow them to be designated to a slot and not swapped

    Allow Hybrid Connections to be pinned to a specific slot like app settings and connections strings. Especially since connection strings and hybrid connections are typically codependent.

    Hybrid connections are designed to retrieve data from on-premises sources. 99% of the time, you don't want to swap that. I don't want a swapped slot to start pulling data from somewhere else.

    Say you have a Production and UAT slot. When I promote UAT into production, I still want the production slot to still use the production hybrid connection and the same for UAT.

  2. Option to protect deployment slots from being indexed by search engines

    Please provide the ability for Web App deployment slots to reply with a NOINDEX directive to search engines, either with response headers or a custom robots.txt file for the slots.

  3. AppOffline support for all WebApps(including Java)

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

    #
    {
    "name": "MSDeploy",
    "type": "Extensions",
    "apiVersion": "2014-01-01",
    "dependsOn": [
    "[concat('Microsoft.Web/Sites/', parameters('siteName'))]"
    ],
    "properties": {
    "packageUri": "[parameters('msdeployPackageUri')]",
    "dbType": "None",
    "connectionString": "",
    "setParameters": {
    },
    "AppOffline": true
    }

  5. 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.

  6. php/laravel, Django and NodeJS Deployment

    I would like to see support for PHP/Laravel, DJango and seamless and possible just like i can do in heroku cli or how we do in asp.net core. 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

  7. Deployment URL for App Services

    The App Services has a URL, however if the Deployment URL is also shown then it would be handy for someone to just click, rather than copying the URL and then manually constructing the Deployment URL by putting "scm." in front of azurewebsites.net and also adding /ZipDeployUI at the end.

  9. Adding variable support on tag field when deploying docker container on WebApp container

    I'm using docker for all the Ci pipeline, that works great.
    But for the deployment pipeline, I would like to deploy the generated docker tag name based on the BuildNumber but actually it's not supported.

    When I set tag $(Release.Artifacts.App.Build.BuildId), the logs

    I can see in the logs:

    2018-11-12T16:21:37.3420228Z Updating App Service Application settings. Data: {"DOCKER_CUSTOM_IMAGE_NAME":"myregistry.azurecr.io/app:$(Release.Artifacts.Api.Build.BuildId)"}

    The variable is not resolved...

  10. App Service Certificate

    When you purchase APP Service certificate you also need to specify domain name. Can you change this Domain name later on.

  11. How to run custom deployment steps when deploying to App Service for Linux

    Well I hope this is the write place to post this question.
    I came from: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service/containers/quickstart-nodejs

    I am trying to deploy a nodejs app to azure which has custom build steps.

    I would like the deployment to run:
    npm install
    npm build
    After it's deployed

    It seems it only runs `npm install --production` and then tries to run the file listed in the `main` field of package.json. Although the source is in typescript so I would need to compile it first.

    I saw here:
    https://github.com/projectkudu/kudu/wiki/Custom-Deployment-Script

    That you can add a `.deployment` file to call `deploy.cmd` file which will execute commands.

  13. Unable to create WebApp in Isolated plan with new create experience

    In the classic web app creation experience, on selecting an isolated service plan for the new app, the domain name shown below the app name changes from azurewebsites.net to the domain name of the isolated plan.

    This does not happen in the new create form. This means that you cannot enter an app name that has already been added to the azurewebsites.net domain.
