Welcome to a new and exciting year of App Service updates, December 2017 was a quality milestone for the App Service team and over the break we delivered over 60 general quality of life and performance improvements for both the App Service and Functions experience in the Azure portal.
Now that we are in February it’s time to share some of the improvements and new features we delivered in January 2018
Application Settings UX refresh
The new application settings ux uses the same code base across App Service
, Azure Functions
and Web Apps for Containers
. It provides a consistent look and feel, improves performance and allows us to deliver improvements and new features across all 3 products with less duplicated work.
My SQL in-app data import
My SQL in-app
now lets you import as well as export the database content. This makes it easy to migrate existing databases in and out of MySQL in-app.
New FAQ UI
We have a new experience that provides in context help content filtered to the specific feature you are using. The content is driven by the App Service documentation
and it lets you get straight to what you need without having to search for it.

Web Apps on Linux
now has built in support for .NET Core 2.0
