  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. Copy the application log settings when cloning deployment slots

    It would be better if the log settings are copied into a newly created slot, when we clone a slot, just like the app settings does.
    For example, currently when we turn the blob logging enabled and then clone the slot, the logging get disabled in a new slot.
    On the contrary, the blob container settings remains.

    This is because the blob container setting is saved as an environment variable in app settings.
    Here is the result in ResourceExplorer, when I cloned a slot.

    "applicationLogs": {
    "fileSystem": {
    "level": "Off"
    },
    "azureTableStorage": {
    "level": "Off",
    "sasUrl": "https://strageaccountsample.table.core.windows.net/xxxxxxx"
    }, …

  7. 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.

  8. 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
