Create an App Service app and deploy Private Endpoint using PowerShell

This sample script creates an app in App Service with its related resources, and then deploys a Private Endpoint.

Use Azure Cloud Shell

Azure hosts Azure Cloud Shell, an interactive shell environment that you can use through your browser. You can use either Bash or PowerShell with Cloud Shell to work with Azure services. You can use the Cloud Shell preinstalled commands to run the code in this article without having to install anything on your local environment.
