  1. Ability to incrementally create/update AppSettings & ConnectionStrings

    Actual problem:
    Today if we don't provide all of the existing AppSettings or ConnectionStrings, the ones we omit are removed.

    Feature:
    A little bit like the ARM deployment mode, add the ability to specify an Incremental & Complete mode when pushing settings. To ensure compatibility, Complete would be the default, keeping the behavior we have today. If we set the mode to Incremental, only the provided settings would be created/updated, leaving existing settings untouched.

    Use cases:
    This would be very useful in cases where we want to sync AppSettings or ConnectionStrings for resources directly in our ARM templates for only…

    • App Service Plan also clones when cloning a Web App only if the Web App and App Service Plan is in a different Resource group

      When we clone a Web App, the App Service Plan will also clone if the Web App and App Service Plan is in a differnet resource group.
      This won't happen if the Web App and the App Service Plan is in the same resource group.

      Repro Steps:
      1. Put a Web App and an App Service Plan in a different resource group.
      2. Clone the Web App from the Azure Portal ([Development Tools] - [Clone app]).
      3. Not only the Web App, but also the App Service Plan, which we selected when cloning Web App, will also been cloned in…

      • allow empty collection as a value of Set-AzureRmWebApp -AppSettings parameter

        Attempting to clear AppSettings using
        Set-AzureRmWebApp -ResourceGroupName $resourceGroupName -Name $name -AppSettings @{}
        fails the validation. I believe this is a bug because it should be possible to clear all AppSettings this way.

          • Add Bitbucket deployment option to Linux web apps

            My company uses Bitbucket exclusively for our Git repo hosting, I'm very excited to start using the Linux-based web app service, would love to see Bitbucket added as a deployment source option alongside Github and Azure.

              • SSH for Azure App Services for Linux

                Support SSH access under the application user with access to the app $HOME directory.

                This would help with troubleshooting, as well as interesting deployment scenarios like Mina or Capistrano.

                • Add build system for app service on linux

                  I use App service on Linux with dotnet core container.

                  Currently, deploy to app service on Linux is git push or ftp.

                  Deploy by FTP is non secure, so i want to use git.

                  But, it is not build at time of git push, I have to commit artifacts to Git.

                  So i would like to add a system to run the build at git push.

                  • App Service Companion - Ability swap deployment slots

                    Whilst being able to stop and restart web apps is good it would be better for me if I could swap deployment slots. This would give me an additional option to resolve potential issues with a recent release if I was on the go.

                    Great app btw.

                    • Usage of (Registration-Free Activation of) COM Components in Azure Web App

                      We are facing the issue - " (The 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' provider is not registered on the local machine. in app service azure) while running my ASP.Net MVC application hosted in App Service, not in VM . The application uses 'Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' provider which has to be installed on App Service before my application runs."

                      We understand that :
                      - There is no way to install VM-wide software on AppService – it runs in a sandbox
                      - Startup tasks are applicable to “cloud services”, not AppService

                      Just wondering if “Registration-Free Activation of COM Components” would be useful in scenarios like App Services where…

                      • Lay Webjob Run time over Resource Utilization Graphs

                        Most often when we see a resource e.g. an App Service Plan see its CPU or Memory pegged at 100%, it is due to a problem with a running WebJob. We would be able to diagnose this type of problem very quickly if we were able to lay out WebJob start/end times over resource utilization graphs in the new Azure Portal.

                        • Custom request headers in web server logs

                          This is generally useful, but my usecase if with Cloudflare:

                          When a web app is behind Cloudflare, all visitor IPs come Cloudflare's IPs. Cloudflare does forward the original visitor IP with a custom request header. I want to log this value in my web server logs. In IIS this is achieved with Advanced Logging, but this capability does not seem available in Azure web apps.

                            Setting the backup time for a scheduled backup in Firefox incorrectly creates a backup with the wrong timezone offset applied. This was tested on four different devices with fresh browser installs. Chrome and Edge do not have this issue.

                              App Service Environment is priced ridiculously and doesn't get any price reductions like VMs recently did, in fact in July you doubled the price!

                              What is basically sitting on a VM is priced so high it beggars belief. A P4 which is just a 8 core 14gb ram system is £1400 per month, and you have to have two of them! On top of a front end pool which is an additional £540 pm. All in all £3000 pm ... you can get a whole lot of VM power in availability sets for half that!

                              There is no explanation which…

                              • Cloud Explorer and Server Explorer

                                There is two way to manage Azure Resources in Visual Studio, Cloud Explorer and Server Explorer.
                                However, even if we start the WebJob using one of these, we can still click "start" in the other one.
                                Also, we can attach a debugger to a individual WebJob in Server Explorer, but we can't select individual WebJob in Cloud Explorer.
                                It will be useful if the two tools moves synchronously.

                                • Make the remote debugging of the WebJob more easly

                                  The remote debugging function will be more useful, if there is one of the function (or both) I mention below.

                                  1. Enable remote debugging for the "scheduled" WebJob
                                  2. Automatically attach the debugger when starting the "continuous" WebJob

                                  If we want to remote debug a WebJob using Visual Studio, it is only supported for the "continuous" WebJob.
                                  Thus, if we want to debug a scheduled WebJob, we have to set the WebJob as "continuous", even if it is a "scheduled WebJob".

                                  However, when we remote debug the continuous web job, we have to start the WebJob before attaching the debugger…

                                  • Show metrics of different unit in the web app blade

                                    In the Azure Portal web app blade, we can show metrics of "CPU time", "Data In", "Http Errors", and so on.
                                    However, we can only choose the metrics which the unit is same at the same time.
                                    For example, we can choose "Average Response Time" and "CPU time" at the same time, but we can't choose "Http Server Errors".
                                    We wan't to choose metrics of different unit at the same time.

                                    • Turkey timezone issue

                                      "The Turkish government recently announced that they will not be observing DST going forward. They will remain permanently on UTC+3 and not return to UTC+2 on October 30th, 2016."

                                      Azure web apps is still using UTC+2.

                                      • Allow managing SSL certificates

                                        Right now "All Resources" displays an SSL certificate as "THUMBPRINT##West Europe#" and fails to load a certificate blade if clicken on this resource.

                                        An option to renaming the certificate to match naming convention of other resources would be the second good fix.

                                        • Add support multi factor authentication via FTP access. (PCI DSS compliance)

                                          In the following URL, we can find PCI DSS standard document v3_2.

                                          <https://www.pcisecuritystandards.org/document_library>

                                          I read this document (Attached) and found the following item.

                                          8.3.1 Incorporate multi-factor authentication for all non-console access into the CDE for personnel with administrative access.
                                          Note: This requirement is a best practice until January 31, 2018, after which it becomes a requirement.

                                          8.3.1.a Examine network and/or system configurations, as applicable, to verify multi-factor authentication is required for all non-console administrative access into the CDE.

                                          Currently we can access WebApps via FTP with non-multi-factor-authentication when we deploy our application. But PCI DSS standard…
