Tomcat 7 reached End-of-Support on 23 March 2021

Published date: August 20, 2021

Because Tomcat 7 has reached the end of community support on 23 March  2021, applications hosted on App Service will continue to run, but they will not receive updates or security patches because they are no longer available.

Required action

To minimize risk and potential security vulnerabilities, upgrade your Web Apps to Tomcat 8.5 or 9 depending on your workload requirements. To start, log in to Azure portal, navigate to the web app(s) go to Configuration > Settings > Stack Settings. You will see dropdowns for Tomcat versions. Select Tomcat 8.5 or 9.0.

You can also view other resources before you upgrade your Web Apps to Tomcat 8.5 or 9.
