  1. It would be good to write stdout log files in storage account

    To avoid the webapp unresponsive because of file system quota exceed limit it would be great to write in storage account

  2. Install a Docker container as part of a Site Extension, but not as the primary App Service site.

    I want to use an agent that is written in Go to listen for requests from within the App Service. Although this can be accomplished by running the Go agent in a separate VM, the intent is to have it seamlessly available within the App Service. We will be installing another agent-like library into the App Service, and it will be embedded in the web app so that it can monitor it and send data to the Go agent.

  3. Allow password to be retrieved from KeyVault for ACR.

    Hi,
    Currently when we set the password for ACR in APPSETTINGS under DOCKERREGISTRYSERVER_PASSWORD it is able to load the images but if I try to fetch the password from KeyVault the ACR tab is unable to load the images from.

  4. Stick to the original timeline for App Services in UAE

    We have clients in the middle east who are currently hosted in Europe. This causes high latency which would be solved by hosting in UAE.

  5. Add support incl. documentation on writing API Apps in Python and importing this API in APIM.

    Although Azure's documentation claims that Python is fully supported on Linux environments, I'm not able to use the API Management service and include for instance an Azure Function App created in Python. Is this even possible and, if yes, how?

  6. Windows security patch updates

    Sometimes our azure app service code runs into issues with windows patches. It would be nice to know which windows patches are applied and when.

  7. Allow setup of app-service SSL cert before go-live

    As it stands, it is impossible to set up the SSL cert for a custom domain before the site is live. We are looking to move an existing site to Azure. We need the HTTPS URL to work the moment it goes live; however, we are halted in setting it up by this message:

    Create App Service Managed Certificates (Preview)
    Hostname not eligible for App Service Managed Certificates creation. Ensure that your domain www.our-website.com has an active CNAME record which is set to ourSite-live.azurewebsites.net.

    If we create that CNAME, we would be making the new site live, but it is…

  8. Ability to Disable PHP from the new Configuration Blade

    I like in the new configuration blade the ability to choose the stack, but in choosing a .NET stack, PHP didn't get disabled (java and python were disabled appropriately). I had to go into classic application settings and disable php there. Please make sure this is an option if you get rid of the classic. As a security conscious site we want to constantly reduce our attack footprint.

  9. 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.

  11. Allow trigger prioritization

    I have several functions including both http and queue triggered, as well as one timer triggered, in a single function app on a multi-instance app service. I am having problems where even though there are multiple instances, some of my functions wind up waiting until the timer triggered function (which takes a few minutes) is complete before they execute. That means that instead of taking less than a second, these functions take several seconds up to minutes, depending on when they are triggered during the timer's execution. I am probably going to move the timer triggered function to its own…

  12. Add Java libs and corresponding package in the Ruby Images

    Looks like Java is not installed with default ruby package. Is it possible for the team to include java packages with ruby so that we can use the default one rather than our own container images. Even without disturbing existing ruby package we can come up with new package as given below so that whoever wants both combination can use the same.
    - Ruby + Java package

  13. If you develop a future in Webapp to resolve hostname in same vnet to communicate with the hostname to other VM to resolve host entry

    Using hostname by editing of the hosts file. to resolve the hostname to ip to name without DNS that will help, Because of this reason, the customer cannot move to another PASs service instead of a web app. If you implement this future like a haddop cluster that environment that will be helpful to everyone. for this reason, the support team is taking more months to give the conclusion. ask the update on the feedback.

  14. Allow app service to use hybrid connection namespaces in another subscription

    When adding a hybrid connection to an app service, if you choose to use an existing "Service Bus Namespace" (Why is it called that and not Relay like it is everywhere else?), it requires you to choose a namespace that is in the name subscription as the app service.

    I would like to use an existing namespace in the same tenant but a different subscription. I'm not sure if this is a limitation on hybrid connections or a limitation of the configuration screen in the portal.

  15. BUG: Application Pool PATH variable includes wrong path for git

    The Application Pool configuration Path variable includes the following for git, however the 64 bit version is actually installed. This means that the application cannot use Git without referencing the full path (which in my case is impractical).

    "D:\Program Files (x86)\Git\cmd"

    Path variable should refer to:

    "D:\Program Files\Git\cmd"

  16. Display Proper Message if an App Service is Down

    reference to the case# 518312

    Our websites failed because of an outage at Microsoft.
    the message displayed on web apps running in the subscription suggested that the subscription was suspended due to non-payment whereas the issue was on Microsoft side. It would have been better if the message was more specific

  17. Running df -<switch> on a Linux App Service must return the disk space used by the App Service Plan on the remote file system mount (/home)

    Running df -h / df -P on a Linux App Service container (in case of remote file system mount on /home) should return the disk space utilized on the remote file system by the App Service Plan instead of the total disk space utilized on the remote file system.

    We are trying to monitor the disk space utilized on the /home folder on a Linux App Service using AppDynamics extensions.

    AppDynamics agent runs a df -h or df -P on the app service container. This command returns the total disk space utilized on the remote file system mounted on /home…

  19. Add service health notifications for planned maintenance on App Services

    Currently, no notification for planned maintenance are sent for App Services when service health alerts are activated. Such notifications would be helpful to prepare for potential outages if the platform maintenance impacts availability or performance of the service.

  20. Log event that service plan can not handle all web apps instead killing biggest app in a loop without proper information

    After spending 8+ hours debugging why Linux Web app is restarting (case: 119061321000317) I would like you to fix logging for web app plan - if Service plan cannot accomodate web apps contained in a plan - please log that health check killed biggest app in a plan and not logging "unhelthy" state.
