App Service Deployment Center (Preview)

 

We are happy to announce a new preview experience for setting up deployments to Azure App Service.

Deployment Center is a centralized overview for all of the deployment options available to you. It also provides a guided experience to set up your deployments.

With the new UX you can now search and filter through your repositories and branches making navigation through large code repositories easier.

We have also revamped the access to log files making them easier to find and consume.

Other improvements include:

  1. Link back to source repository (as requested in our Uservoice)
  2. Displaying the branch information (as requested in our Uservoice)
  3. Information about the Commit ID and Author
  4. Surfacing the Check-in message

All of these improvements are geared to help developers understand what version of their code is currently deployed in their app.

Deployment credential management is now contextualized to your deployment provider/method of choice.

It is now easier to set and re-set credentials from the deployment center without having to visit another UI or abandon the flow.
