How can we improve Azure Web Apps (formerly Websites)?

Add support for free SSL certs like those from Let's Encrypt

Now that the EFF and Mozilla are backing the Let's Encrypt project to provide everyone free SSL certs, it would be great if you would permit free usage of SSL certs on Azure Websites.

        This is not completed, security is not a luxusry in 2017. It should be done with the press of a button, built-in in the dashboard.

        Please re-open this? It should simply be a checkbox in the portal!

        This needs to be reopened and integrated into Azure (as everyone else is saying)

        Not only should this be a one-click checkbox in the Azure Portal but it should be checked by default when you make a new site.

        Please re-open. I appreciate it competes with your new commercial offering, but this is a real opportunity for Microsoft to Do The Right Thing by making pervasive SSL so much easier - and free. It would earn you huge kudos and would make Brad Smith proud.

        Agree, this should just be a checkbox with full automation otherwise it wont be used by anyone unless they can really be bothered. It's a lot of hassle for my blog. I've jumped through the hoops for some other apps I've been writing though.

        Please re-open - great work by the community, but seriously this should just be a checkbox option on the portal.

        As other have noted, this is not complete. Microsoft needs to officially support this in the portal.

        I second what others have said: this is not solved. The community solution is a good temporary workaround, but I want something that's easier to setup and fully integrated into Azure. I want to be able to add a LetsEncrypt cert for a VM, a website, etc all from the portal. I don't want to have to drop down to Powershell or jump through hoops.

        Great work on the extension, but there is still too much overhead with setting up the Service Principal, so no, it's not "solved", it's more like "this is good enough until we get this implemented natively"

        It would be great if web apps had a wizard to request and install certificates directly from let's encrypt when adding a custom domain.
