Deploy asp net app to azure app service via build pipeline

Introduction

Deploying an ASP.NET application to Azure App Service via a build is a common requirement for many developers. In this article, we will explore the steps involved in achieving this goal and to illustrate the process.

Prerequisites

we begin, make sure you have the following prerequisites:

  • An Azure subscription
  • An ASP.NET application
  • An Azure DevOps

Step 1: an Azure App Service

The first step is to create an Azure App Service where we will deploy our ASP.NET application. Follow these steps:

  1. Login to the Azure portal
  2. on “Create a resource” and for “App Service”
  3. Click on “App Service” and then “Create”
  4. Provide the necessary details such as the resource , app name, and runtime stack (ASP.NET)
  5. Click on “Review + Create” and then “Create” to create the App Service

Step 2: Set up a Build Pipeline

Next, we need to set up a build pipeline in Azure DevOps to build our ASP.NET application and generate the deployment artifacts. Follow these steps:

  1. Login to Azure DevOps
  2. Create a new project or select an existing project
  3. Navigate to “Pipelines” and click on “New Pipeline”
  4. Choose your source code repository and configure the pipeline settings
  5. Add a build task to build the ASP.NET application
  6. Configure the build task with the necessary build arguments and options
  7. Save and run the build pipeline to generate the deployment artifacts

Step 3: Configure the Release Pipeline

Once the build pipeline is successfully generating the deployment artifacts, we can configure the release pipeline to deploy the ASP.NET application to the Azure App Service. Follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to “Pipelines” and click on “Releases”
  2. Create a new release pipeline or select an existing one
  3. Add an “Azure App Service Deploy” task to the release pipeline
  4. Configure the task with the necessary details such as the Azure subscription, resource group, and app name
  5. Specify the deployment artifacts generated by the build pipeline
  6. Save and run the release pipeline to deploy the ASP.NET application to the Azure App Service

Conclusion

Deploying an ASP.NET application to Azure App Service via a build pipeline is a straightforward process that can be achieved by following the steps outlined in this article. By leveraging the power of Azure DevOps, developers can the deployment process and ensure a smooth and efficient deployment of their ASP.NET applications.
