We are looking at options to enable this.Dennis Daume commented
Ohad's Webjob is great, but it sadly doesn't support the local cache feature that is crucial to be enabled for highly-available web services.
It would be great if there would be something built-in and officially supported rather than having the community have to play catch-up with the app service features
Thank you for the feedback, team is reviewing the item to prioritize it accordingly with other priority features for the semester. We will continue to revisit it and update the status accordingly. Thank you
We are exploring how to implement this feature without compromising privacy. Thank you for all the feedback!
