Most of web application oriented hosters (like Azure App Service) or application hosted in Docker (in Azure, App Service on Linux), or serverless applications don’t offer built-in e-mail delivery and require you to use an external server. In this article, we are going to explore the options to do this.Continue reading “Sending e-mail from Web Apps”
A while ago, it has been announced that App Service on Linux has gained the ability to make use of Authentication / Authorization as well. Originally, I wanted to publish the article earlier, but I got to finish it just now. This article is going to walk you through how the Authentication / Authorization works in App Service on Linux and might give you few hints how to make some more use of it.Continue reading “Exploring App Service Authentication on Linux”
I initially wanted to publish this code in summer already, but in the end, I didn’t have enough time to spare to do so. Do you find yourself implementing Microsoft Graph, ADAL, MSAL etc. in many projects over and over again? If so, or you just want to have less work with that, read on!Continue reading “Microsoft Authentication Graph Helpers”
With the recent release of Azure Functions Runtime 2.0, WebJobs SDK 3.0 got released alongside. WebJobs SDK is the backbone of Azure Functions, however it can be also used standalone to power Azure WebJobs which you can host alongside your App Service. SDK 3.0 brings the configuration much closer to ASP.NET Core, runs under both .NET Framework and .NET Core and for example supports Dependency Injection by default.Continue reading “Upgrading to WebJobs SDK 3.0”
Recently, when deploying a project, we have hit an interesting issue – when we deployed an ASP.NET Core 2.1 application with HTTPS redirection middleware with HSTS middleware disabled, however the redirection wasn’t working correctly.Continue reading “UseHttpsRedirection on Azure App Service”
Recently, we had a project which required us to connect to a MySQL server from .NET Core with a client certificate authentication. While this seemed fairly trivial, we have hit some issues after deploying the application to Azure App Service.
I have been running this blog and bunch of other projects on a local shared hosting called WEDOS for something over 3 years. They offer some great services for real good price, however after couple of issues and temptation I decided to move away to an Azure VM. We are going to take a look at how I did the move and what technologies I am using the background.
