General availability of Managed Identity for Linux in App Service and Functions
Updated: August 26, 2019
A managed identity from Azure Active Directory allows your app to easily access other AAD-protected resources such as Azure Key Vault. App Service and Azure Functions have had generally available support for Windows plans, but today this is being expanded to Linux as well. Now, any GA plan option in App Service and Azure Functions has full support for both system-assigned and user-assigned identities.
