  2. Unable to use subnet when VNET Integrated App is deleted

    When an app service is integrated into Regional VNET the subnet is delegated with Microsoft.Web/Server Farm and if we delete app service we are unable to remove the service association link from the subnet. subnet goes waste and needs to raise a ticket with Microsoft. Either don't allow people to delete the function app/App Service, forcing them to disconnect from VNET prior or if it gets deleted to also clean up the delegation on the subnet.

  4. [Linux] Ability to move a Web App to a different App Service plan

    Enable the 'Change App Service Plan' blade for Linux web apps in order to allow Linux apps to be moved to a different App Service plan in the way Windows apps can be moved now.

  5. Enable Http2 / Server push on worker instances in app service

    Now that Azure Web Apps supports Http/2 but is limited to only fAzure Front end (just like how ssl does) requests to worker should also support Http/2 to get full advantage out of it.

    Server push is not currently available on app service.
    Server push allows the server to push resources to the client ahead of time via PUSH_PROMISE

  6. 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/.

  7. Ensure Autoscale allows for new instances to get in rotation only if an App is ready

    Currently autoscale puts instances into rotation without checking if the actual application is warmed up. Please add a feature to autoscale that checks if an application is warmed up before its put into rotation. Noting that the new Health Check feature has capabilities to detect bad instances based on URL (this is different than adding new instances with autoscale) this may be start as you could queue off the URL to hit in the app to know if an instance is ready to be in rotation.

  8. Request to manage diagnostic settings for App Service Plan from Azure portal.

    We need to manage diagnostic settings for App Service Plan from the Azure portal like other resources.
    You can manage diagnostic settings for Many Azure services on the Azure portal. Some cx basically creates diagnostic settings on the Azure portal and checks the settings. This is because such a cx would like to easily manage them thanks to GUI operations.

    However, currently, you cannot manage diagnostic settings for App Service Plan on Azure portal. For this reason, it would be nice if we could create and read thes setting from the Azure portal like other diagnostic settings.

  10. Add alternate validation methods for App Services Managed Certificates

    Please create an alternate method of validation for creating an App Services Managed Certificate. We use CloudFlare in front of our App Services, so the CNAME points to CloudFlare and not Azure. Consequently, validation fails. A preferable alternate solution would be to check if the domain the cert if being requested for is already a custom domain in the web app. If it is, since it you have already been validated as the owner of that domain, it should suffice for an app services managed cert. If you can't do that, then use a DNS TXT record for verification.

  11. Web App built-on CORS header Access-Control-Max-Age

    Using the built-in CORS support in App Service for an API Web App, we can't specify header 'Access-Control-Max-Age' or any other headers besides 'Access-Control-Allow-Credentials' and 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin'.

    We would like to use the App Service built-in CORS because it's easy to manage all the different allowed origins from there, but we need to be able to set headers like 'Access-Control-Max-Age', 'Cache-Control', and 'Vary' to optimize the OPTIONS calls.

  12. Upgrade CPUs in Azure App Service Premium Tier

    Currently the "Premium" tier on App Service offers this three options:

    P1: 1VCore DSV2
    P2: 2VCores DSv2
    P3: 4VCores DSv2

    I wouldn't call this a premium tier now that we are getting into 2020...

    App service is one of the most useful services offered in Azure and it really needs an upgrade.

    Amazon's Beanstalk does not have such limitations.

    I would suggest that to upgrade the hardware/resources of the Premium tier to at least:

    P1: 2 VCores
    P2: 4 VCores
    P3: 8 VCores

    The processors model should be upgraded as well to use DSv3 or even better the F series.

  13. PowerShell and CLI support for the management of App Service Environments

    Azure PowerShell and Azure CLI commands to support the management of an App Service Environments (at least v2). Hopefully this could include the ability to get management IP information, do scaling, and if it is an ILB ASE update the ILB Certificate.

  14. Enable application logging in ILB ASE

    Currently there is no way to access our applications trace logs in an ILB ASE environment. I understand the Log Stream button is greyed out in the portal, but even using Kudu, FTP, blob, or streaming in VS, none of these are working in ILB ASE, and support tells us this is a known issue. This is a huge downside for us because we depend on our customized application log messages for troubleshooting.

  15. Option to hide/anonymize IPs in webserver logs to be GDPR compliant

    It would be very helpfull if there would be an option to hide/anonymize IPs in webapps webserver logs. Right now you have to disable webserver logs completely to be GDPR compliant which might be not best practice.

    Hi all,

    Thank you for the feedback and recommendations on this important topic!

    We will look at adding this to our feature roadmap though we don’t have any timing to share right now.

    For additional guidance please refer to “Azure Data Subject Request GDPR Documentation” under the Service Trust Portal: https://servicetrust.microsoft.com/ViewPage/GDPRDSR. Specifically read through, Part 1 – Step 5, which discusses the removal of personal data and timing in which you can leverage retention period settings for the logs.

    Thanks,
    Oded

  16. Create Function level Keys for Azure Functions in ARM template

    ARM templates currently allow to create functionKeys on host level as:

    {
    
    "type": "Microsoft.Web/sites/host/functionKeys",
    "apiVersion": "2018-11-01",
    "name": "[concat(parameters('appServiceName'), '/default/MyFunctionKey')]",
    "properties": {
    "name": "MyFunctionKey"
    }
    }

    Which is great, but does not allow a very granular level of security.
    It is possible to create FunctionKeys on Function level through the admin API (/admin/functions/$($function.functionName)/keys) but not via ARM template.

    Ideally I would like to be able to do the following in my ARM template:

    {

      "type": "Microsoft.Web/sites/functions/functionKeys",
    
    "apiVersion": "2018-11-01",
    "name": "[concat(parameters('appServiceName'), '/MYFUNCTIONNAME/MyFunctionKey')]",
    "properties": {
    "name": "MyFunctionKey"
    }
    }

    I do understand the main difficulty is that the function is most likely created…

  17. Auto-scale up and down not just out, for web apps

    Hi

    Can you expand the auto-scaling feature to include up and down scaling as well as in / out?

    so for example, scale the web app up a tier in peak and down a tier i off hours. Or something to that effect.

    Thanks

  18. Support TLS client certificate inclusion paths

    Currently App Services support only exclusion paths for client certificate authentication. It would be good to have inclusion paths also.
    For example currently it is not possible to configure client certificate authentication with the following structure:
    / -> no authentication
    /api/ -> with client certificate authentication

  19. Provide access to HTTPERR logs

    Currently, enabling "Web Server Logging" appears to archive only the W3C request logs. The HTTPERR logs are the only way to see any requests that failed or were rejected by the server due to TCP timeouts, idle connections, filled request queues, and similar circumstances.
