IPv6 for App Services

App Services running in Azure
How to get these IPv6 enabled?, also why is it not enabled by default?

We can find several posts that it so far is IPv4 only and that you should set up a IPv6 FrontDoor to get IPv6.
This of course is not acceptable, we need to have IPv6 on the services without extra steps.
If anything it should be the other way around, if you need IPv4, put up a FrontDoor to provide it.

Proof:

dig aaaa waws-prod-db3-001.vip.azurewebsites.windows.net.

or if on windows:

nslookup -type=aaaa waws-prod-db3-001.vip.azurewebsites.windows.net.

 x.azurewebsites.net. IN CNAME waws-prod-db3-001.vip.azurewebsites.windows.net.
 waws-prod-db3-001.vip.azurewebsites.windows.net. IN CNAME waws-prod-db3-001.cloudapp.net.

Note the missing AAAA record here.

Azure needs to get this on v6 and fix AAAA records. (work arounds thru frontdoors or proxies are not acceptable)

No Tags available for app-services? or IPv6.

Different post from this year, with an accepted answer that is unacceptable as described above: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/587342/doesn39t-azure-web-application-support-ipv6.html

M-21-07 Mandates that all US gov move towards IPv6 only, this puts Microsoft and Azure in a spot where they have to support it or otherwise not have them as customers.

nikize, Thanks for sharing the Uservoice URL. Yes, we have been receiving feedback for enabling IPv6 for all the Azure services, specially Azure WebApps.
-I'll further follow-up with our product team internally, in case there are any updates sooner from the team, will share it here.

Much appreciate your valuable feedback. Thanks, again.

Hi there,
Any news regarding this important topic?
We developed several services exclusively on Azure, among which App Services and now, due to this limitation on IPV6, our clients are asking us to explore some other services...
We are not keen on migrating/deploying somewhere else just for IPV6 ....
Any news on ETA?

Thanks a lot for your help and concern!
