/status, the default keep-alive URL is
In Azure app service, I want to change the keep-alive time period and want to change the HTTP ping (keep-alive) URL to
/status, the default is
Answer from Azure support
I can not find proper answer so send request to Azure support.
The short answer is there is NO way to change it for now (April, 2020).
There is more detail:
It is not possible to control the default endpoint of keep-alive connection https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service/configure-common#configure-general-settings.
Also there is no way of changing the timeout in a shared app service environment since the request originates from the load balancer, this can only be achieved if the instance is not in a shared environment and using azure load balancer.
You can create a cron job for achieving this by hitting the
/statusafter preferred time and checking if the status is 200. After implementing the custom keep-alive cron job you can always disable the default always on feature in app service. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/app-service/faq-availability-performance-application-issues#how-do-i-decrease-the-response-time-for-the-first-request-after-idle-time.
