Remote debugging option disabled on App Service in Azure Portal

In the Azure Portal for my App Service (Web App on Windows) --> Configuration --> General Settings, the option to disable Remote Debugging is greyed out.

In case I'm not clear, this article incudes a screenshot of that option.

    Hi @kanscombe

    I've been able to confirm that with a Windows App service plan, the Remote debugging option is selectable. I created a .NET 7 app and ASP.NET 4.8 just to be sure. If your app service plan Windows based but, on an ASE, that could be reason why since external access would be disabled.

    If you're not using an ASE, please let me know how you created your Windows based web app and I'll try to repro on my end.
