    @Hari Krishnamurthy ,

    Just following-up on this, hope you had got a chance to see the previous responses. If the answer helped (pointed you in the right direction) > please click Accept Answer.

    As Sunoj mentioned, please check the App Service Diagnostics for pointers to fetch more info on the restart/webapp automatic stop.

    Just adding more info, Azure App Service Web Apps are automatically stopped after a certain period of inactivity.

    If you are experiencing frequent restarts, it could be due to a number of reasons such as:

    • Your WebApp is running on a free or shared tier, which have lower resource limits and are more likely to be stopped due to inactivity.
    • Your WebApp is running on an App Service plan (ASP) that is under heavy load and is being recycled frequently.
    • Your WebApp is experiencing issues that are causing it to crash or become unresponsive.

    -To troubleshoot the issue, you may check the logs for your web app to see if there are any errors or warnings that could be causing the restarts.

    -You may also try scaling up your App Service plan to a higher tier to see if that resolves the issue.

    Azure Web Apps: “Error 403 – This web app is stopped.”
