For different reasons I'm using
Azure's App Service to serve static files. I would like to secure this access by
Http Basic Authentication which is enough for my purposes. How can I do that? I tried uploading
.htpasswd but it does not seem to work.
I'm not using ASP.NET so no way to do it in code. In Azure's portal I see options like Google, Facebook, Twitter login under App Service -> Authentication/Authorization but it's huge overhead for me.
