  1. event log history

    We've had the issue where to diagnose a problem we've needed support to check the historical event logs to see that there was an error throwing, however, as the errors were sporadic, it's been exceedingly difficult to diagnose until support were able to trace exceptions thrown in historical event logs and we were then able to implement code fixes.

    Can a history of event logs be made available for us to access? Even going back a week or two would have been exceedingly useful!

  2. Change Analysis feature for the Slots of the App Service

    It looks like we can do Change Analysis only at main app level, but It would be good to have an option to enable it for the slots as well.

  3. Support for deploying R Shiny App to Azure Web App Container

    What I’m looking for is a guide/tutorial/dockerfile on how to accomplish deploying a shiny app to Azure Web Apps (a tutorial for Flask already exists https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service/containers/quickstart-python). I think this would be a great addition to the App Service Linux lineup, since Shiny (https://shiny.rstudio.com/) is very popular. A somewhat similar solution exists here https://www.shinyproxy.io/.

  4. [Diagnose and Solve ] Allow users to email the full report generated in the App Service Diagnostics

    Today we can copy reports when we investigate or troubleshoot an issue using App Service Diagnostics via Diagnose and solve . I would like to email that report to another person to explain business impact or provide notes on how to mitigate

  6. Allow us to decrypt HTTPS traffic captured via network diagnostics

    Currently it is possible to capture network traffic on App Services and download the traces as .cap files that can be opened with a program like WireShark. However if the traffic you are interested in viewing is encrypted, you may be out of luck.

    Recently, some traffic to an internal server was getting lost somewhere in-between itself and Azure. After a days worth of investigation, our internal IT team found no issues with the server and no traffic being denied from Azure. We resorted to looking at network traces to get as much information as possible, but the traffic to…
