What additional services should Azure provide?

Add integration with "Let's Encrypt"

Let's Encrypt offers low cost certificate authority services. They would be a great resource to integrate with for use in Azure Web Apps among other Azure services.

        Is it because it’s a revenue generator when doing it the fast and easy way to get certs thru GoD?

        The KeyVault resource provider needs to start reading the feedback left by Azure customers, lack of Let's Encrypt support is a bit of a blocker right now for us and the Azure Microsoft.Web resource provider is taking the brunt of feedback for Let's Encrypt when it requires integration from the KeyVault RP.

        Google Cloud Platform already offers this, so either the KeyVault team needs to finally respond and give us the technical reason as to why this can't be implemented or they should at least try to implement this.

        This really does seem like old Microsoft again.

        1 Click Lets Encrypt support added to Azure Key Vault Certificates would be amazing so we can then attach to Web Roles, Worker Roles etc as we need. I read some where this was available but had a quick look and if it is its not obvious?

        wow - c'mon already, one click SSL is the way to go. why does this have to be hard?

      • Brian Seekford commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It still baffles me that Microsoft can't/won't make this happen to ease SSL for sites. Small businesses or people hosting small personal sites would benefit from this. Why they expect the community to write the apps for them is amazing. The setup is insane for the webjob, when it should be a tick box for a built in job that Azure handles.

        Yes, GCP and AWS are smoking Microsoft on this front. Microsoft always seems to not care about the little details that REALLY matter to developers, and instead they focus only on "Cool" new features. Microsoft will probably finally catch up to the others by adding a one click certificate, but it will be way after they lose market share to the other providers.

        The Google Cloud Platform provides this for free and paid accounts by just going into the settings and clicking a button. Something to think about.

      • Giorgos Velogiannis commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        AWS gives free certificates with a touch of a button, NOW it's the time that all websites should have an SSL certificate, this request is the highest in feedback.azure.com, and what did the developers get in return for the feedback? A 3rd party recommendation and a post from Scott? I thought MS could have done better, when they do not even consider this option. That's a joke.

      • Chris commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Browsers will start reporting sites without SSL as not safe, Google lowers them in the rankings yet encryption certs are expensive and time consuming to apply. Let's Encrypt is free but it's still complicated. Add support, make it easy.

        This is one of the features I miss the most. Getting proper Let's Encrypt integration would be a huge improvement.
