This article shows you how to build realtime applications on Angular with ASP.NET Core and SignalR. To get started you need to create an ASP.NET Core application and configure SignalR hub in that. I am using a Web API application. You can do this by dotnet new webapi command. Once it is created, you need to create a Hub - which the one of the core components in the SignalR framework. Here is the Hub implementation.
This article shows you how to monitor Azure WebJobs using Azure Application Insights. WebJobs is a feature of Azure App Service that enables you to run a program or script in the same instance as a web app, API app, or mobile app. There is no additional cost to use WebJobs. If you’re using Azure WebJobs monitoring WebJobs is little hard. You might need to login into Kudu and need to check the status. Recently I had to implement a solution which helps me to monitor Azure WebJobs. Basically by monitoring Web Jobs I wanted to verify whether the service is able to complete the operation successfully or it is still running or it is failed. In this post I am using Azure Application Insights and Kudu REST API to monitor the availability of the Web Jobs. You will be using the Availability feature of Application Insights with the help of MultiStep tests.
This article shows you what is App Service Health Check feature and how to enable it. This feature will help you to improve the availability of your Azure App Service. You can increase the availability and throughput by scaling the app into multiple instances. But what will happen due to some exceptions one of your app becomes faulty and not responding? This feature helps you to configure an endpoint, in which system will ping on configured intervals, if an app service instance fails to respond to this ping, system remove the instance from your load balancer. This feature introduced in Azure App service in 2019 and now it is Generally Available and ready for production applications.
In my last blog post I wrote about working with SSL certificate in Azure App Service. In this article I will explain how to manage Azure App Service SSL certificates with Azure Key Vault Service. If you’re running SAAS applications on Azure App Service with custom domains and SSL certificates it is quite complicated. Here is a screenshot of an App Service running a SAAS app with custom domain and SSL certificates.
This article shows you how to work with SSL certificates in Azure App Service. Last year I wrote a blog post on how to use Azure App Service managed certificates. If you’re using App service managed certificates, you don’t need to worry about the expiry, it will get renewed automatically by Azure. If you’re using custom domain names for Azure App service you will be able to configure SSL certificates to the custom domain name. To create custom TLS/SSL bindings for your App Service app, your App Service plan must be in the Basic, Standard, Premium, or Isolated tier.
