Create a web app with continuous deployment from GitHub
This sample script creates a web app in App Service with its related resources, and then sets up continuous deployment from a GitHub repository. For GitHub deployment without continuous deployment, see Create a web app and deploy code from GitHub. For this sample, you need:
- A GitHub repository with application code, that you have administrative permissions for.
- A Personal Access Token (PAT) for your GitHub account.
If you don't have an Azure subscription, create a free account before you begin.
