    One more scenario: For the Azure services that have 'serverless' options those can go from a daily low $ to maxing out your credit card without knowing about it. At least being clued into that as quickly as possible would help.

    Mike commented  · 

    I just went looking for a way to set a daily alert, let me give you the scenario. Sometimes I might be testing something to see how it's going to price out for me or a customer. Having an alert that resets daily really helps me to test it and not forget to turn it off. You might be wondering, 'why not just use a monthly alert and set it really low.' That might works but if I'm playing with the settings trying to get down to a budget then I have to keep remembering to go in and resetting the alert.

    Another scenario: By setting a daily budget amount at 99% of the norm, I get a much quicker notice when something is running hotter (dollar-wise) than expected. Like for example maybe a team member changed a setting and didn't know the price consequences. That quicker insight helps me to manage something I'm spending on that I don't use and don't need.

    I hope this has always been planned to roll out in-memory OLTP for lower tiers and was started at the higher tiers to work out the technicalities. Otherwise it kind of defeats the purpose of what cloud is touted for, i.e. the ability to start small and scale up as needed. By offering In-Memory OLTP only on the upper tiers it doesn't give the same advantages to the smaller guys who don't have the big budgets. We're running standard and the price jump to premium or vcores would be an unjustifiable gross overallocation of resources for our needs just to get In-Memory OLTP. So because of that our caching and temp tables are consuming a vast amount of unnecessary DTUs. Either way we're wasting money. Cloud should be helping the little guys so they can become big guys.

    If as the OP says the difference is because of version number of sql server, and it's easier to make a new Standard v2 tier to be able to phase out the older sql, that would work for us at this time, we'd take the time to convert.

    I think you can mark this one as done now right? I read a blog post a while back that this behavior was changed and according to this documentation this setting is not swapped between slots: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service/deploy-staging-slots

    I updated my sites months ago to have the staging slot settings for 'Always On' to OFF and it hasn't been an issue any more. I've also just now tested it one more time and it's working well!

    Nicely done and thanks!

    15 votes in only 6 weeks, that's not bad. Any updates on this? I guess this is harder than it seems?

    Any updates on this? This continues to be a pain point for me.

    Mike commented  · 

    Thanks for the updates Oded and Ruslan. As a workaround for now, does anyone know if I set Always On=false and use something like uptime robot to ping the site is that sufficient to keep it always on? I read somewhere that it won't work for free accounts, but obviously in this case i'm thinking about using it as a workaround on standard or premium tier.

    Hey Folks,

    We have made some great progress on this idea and most of our services today do support move resources across groups.

    We are still working towards 100% support and while we do that it would be great if you can help us prioritize the missing services.

    Please file individual asks on each service category present in uservoice and vote for it.

    Thanks,
    Azure Portal Team

    Mike commented  · 

    Microsoft really needs to give higher priority to customer desires to 'scale down' scenarios in Azure like this. It's not the most obvious feature to pursue at first from Microsoft's perspective because it seems they don't immediately benefit financially from scale down scenarios, however, it is possible that 1) Adoption rates could be higher if these options were available. For example, I purposely do not use Azure VPN because I can't scale down when I don't need it and I'm not willing to write my own scripting for it. 2) The improved efficiency/usage of the Azure network adds more value out of every CPU cycle. 3) No company survives the long term by charging for something that adds NO value. In order to survive the long-term, you have to constantly be pushing the value proposition to customers and NOT charging them for something they're not using. 4) The wastefulness of unused resources at cloud scale is destructive 5) The customer satisfaction of getting good value out of the product re-wins them over every day.

    Hi everyone, we have some long-term plans to improve the restart speed and experience.

    For this scenario we suggest creating a new slot, applying your changes there, validating they work, and swapping your changes. This pattern will avoid downtime on your production site.
