Windows Node Web App Suddenly Doesn't Know What Stack It Is Running!?!?!

Stood up a Windows Node 10.14 web app a while back, deployed PWA code to it, and everything was fine. Suddenly, attempting to browse to the application results in a "You do not have permission to view this directory or page" error message. Checking the web app configuration, the Stack setting displays as blank and clicking the dropdown displays no Node options.

I then deleted the original web app instance and recreated another with the same name. During the creation process Node stack options were available. Selected Node 10.14. Web app instance was created successfully, but when I check the resulting web app configuration I see the same blank Stack value and Node-less list of options.

This is extremely frustrating! How does this happen?

    Hi @Eric Davis ,

    Definitely realize how frustrating this is. The product group also realizes this omission as well and we do have a work item to address it. I can't say for certain when it will be released but it will be addressed in an upcoming release. In the meantime, you can verify what version by either observing the APPSETTING_WEBSITE_NODE_DEFAULT_VERSION Environment variable in Kudu or the WEBSITE_NODE_DEFAULT_VERSION in Application Settings in the Configuration blade.
