Alternate way to validate App Service Managed Certificates?

Is there an alternate method of validation for creating an App Services Managed Certificate? We use CloudFlare in front of our App Services, so the CNAME points to CloudFlare and not Azure. Consequently, validation fails. A preferable alternate solution would be to check if the domain the cert if being requested for is already a custom domain in the web app. If it is, since it you have already been validated as the owner of that domain, it should suffice for an app services managed cert. If you can't do that, then allow using a DNS TXT record for verification. Thanks!

    Currently, there's no alternative way to validate creating an ASMC. The only way to validate an ASMC is if your custom domain has a CNAME pointed to your <app-name>.azurewebsites.net.
