Make Traffic manager able to access Web Apps that uses Authentication
Traffic manager is currently unable to get the status of a Web App that's using the Authentication/Authorization (simple auth) feature. It would be nice if it could use some kind of service account (or similar) to get authenticated and get the Web App status but still have the security features intact.
I can't find any public documentation on this, but for my set of function apps, using a path of '/admin/host/ping' for the health probe returns 200 OK only when the host is up and running.

How to configure azure function apps having AD secure and running on consumption plan into Azure Traffic Manager.

It's quite a common scenario to suggest to customers that they use traffic manager with an App Service multi region deployment, and also leverage Azure AD to secure it. This should be a seamless process and not require a workaround.

Any update to allow authentication? Is anonymous the only option for Traffic Manager health probes? https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/jpsanders/2017/02/06/azure-traffic-manager-probe-degraded-due-to-401-from-azure-web-app/
