OS and Browser
Windows 10 + Chrome

Repro steps

  1. Sign-in to the Azure Portal and open an existing function app that contains some functions
  2. Try to expand "Functions" node under this function app
  3. Sometimes the "Functions" node could not be expanded. I took a look at Chrome's Developer Tools' console window. It said "GET 403 (Forbidden)". But this didn't repro 100%. Sometimes I was able to expand the Functions node and open the existing functions.
  4. Sometimes when I was trying to load the Kudu site from the Platform Features tab, it opened a new tab but I got "You are not authorized or do not have any subscriptions associated with your account."
  5. For a few times even I was able to open the Kudu site and navigate to the debug console, it would suddenly redirect me to the same unauthorized page right in the middle and any further attempt to the Kudu site would fail with the same error.

Any error messages

Mention any other details that might be useful.

  • The failures are really intermittent. Even for the same function app, the above operations would sometimes fail and sometimes succeed.
  • I have "Owner" role of this Azure subscription so I think should have permission for the above operations, right?
  • P.S.: I have also tried using another credential (which has the "Service Administrator" role of the subscription) to sign-in and do all these things but haven't seen any problems so far. Would that matter?

The functions portal uses the scm endpoint of the apps for various queries about the app that allows the UI to work.

There was a regression in the internal service which is responsible for RBAC (Role Based Access Check to SCM. This regression was introduced while adding an improvement to the service concentrated on movement of roles. Unfortunately, the account associated with the service was affected in a manner that resulted in a change of privileges that affected the ability of the service to communicate with a 3rd party to perform designated tasks.
Once engineers understood the problem, a fix was deployed in order to correct the problem. Once the fix was applied, affected customers were contacted to assure that they were indeed mitigated.
As a result of this incident, we are making improvements in our testing mechanisms to identify code regressions and detection improvements for the affected service.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
