Azure Application Proxy - URL in MyApps

    Question

  • I understand the internal URL in Azure Application Proxy is restricted and inflexible.  It cannot have a path, basically it must be a root URL for the URL rewriting to work properly. No problem. That's the administrative side. In theory, from the web service and DNS, you should be able to manipulate whatever you need so that a nice and neat internal URL will work internally and be given to Azure Application Proxy. For example:

    https://myapp.myserver.com/apphome/messydefaulturl/default.aspx

    Should be able to be boiled down to an internal URL as:

    https://myapp.myserver.com

    In reality, it's just not always possible for numerous reasons, and for this to be a feasible solution it needs to accommodate an extra layer.

    I think the answer is an extra field in configuration with simple concatenation for when the user clicks the link.  My application works when I append the rest of the /path/path.aspx manually, so I can't think of any reason I shouldn't be able to modify the "App Shortcut" in the portal.

    In summary, for the user-facing tiles of each published application, administrators need to be able to add additional path parameters (at https://myapps.Microsoft.com)

  • Hi Jerry. Publishing of specific application paths is in our roadmap, so stay tuned :-)

  • Well thats great to hear.

    Also, already published 10+ apps, seeing a future need for some way to organize the chaos. The Windows Intune Company Portal app does a pretty sweet job with "New Apps" and "Featured Apps".  I'm sure you guys have a LOT of features like that in the pipeline, but I've included some screenshots for your reference.

  • Not to ask for deadlines, but is it a high priority in the features list?  We're hoping to publish 40+ apps, all of which have extra path requirements. We will wait if we hear it's a high priority on the roadmap.
