Support HTTP redirect records in Azure DNS
Christos Despotakis commented
2.5 years later and still no web forwarding/redirect.
Yes, we can work around it with an Azure Web App and an "HTTP status 301 Moved Permanently", but like @Thomas Mjelde said, other DNS hosts provide this service without the extra steps.

This is something other DNS services offers, and makes moving to Azure DNS harder to do as you'll have to find alternatives for HTTP redirection.
It's not about HTTP to HTTPS redirection, but rather redirect from one domain to another.
This would be very beneficial.
We use HTTP redirects for quite a few things for ease of use with our end users.

if you want to redirect any page to the HTTPS version
//if (top!= self) top.location.href = self.location.href; // Step out of a frame, a long standing abuse by many
if (window.location.protocol != "https:") window.location.href = "https:" + window.location.href.substring(window.location.protocol.length); // automatically load https
