I have used the pipeline profile and found the owin.initialize pipeline isn't available on the CM server which is hosted on the Azure App service.

I have used the Sitecore 9 Update 1 - XP Scaled. How can I turn on the owin.initialize pipeline on the CM server?

After play around in the config files, I found there is a flag inside the web.config where contains the <add key="owin:AutomaticAppStartup" value="false" />. I changed it to true value then the owin.initialize pipeline turns on.

Update I would like to share more details about this issue. Please remind that in the web.config already have a setting value:

<add key="owin:appStartup" value="Sitecore.Owin.Startup, Sitecore.Owin" />

This setting is a default value which turns on owin.initialize pipeline. Setting the value true in the key <add key="owin:AutomaticAppStartup" value="false" /> or remove the owin:AutomaticAppStartup out the web.config file also turn on the owin.initialize pipeline.
