Create an App Service app with continuous deployment from GitHub using CLI
This sample script creates an 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 an app and deploy code from GitHub. For this sample, you need:
- A GitHub repository with application code, that you have administrative permissions for. To get automatic builds, structure your repository according to the Prepare your repository table.
- A Personal Access Token (PAT) for your GitHub account.
Use Azure Cloud Shell
Azure hosts Azure Cloud Shell, an interactive shell environment that you can use through your browser. Cloud Shell lets you use either
PowerShell to work with Azure services. You can use the Cloud Shell pre-installed commands to run the code in this article without having to install anything on your local environment.
To launch Azure Cloud Shell:
|Select Try It in the upper-right corner of a code block. Selecting Try It doesn't automatically copy the code to Cloud Shell.|
|Go to https://shell.azure.com or select the Launch Cloud Shell button to open Cloud Shell in your browser.|
|Select the Cloud Shell button on the top-right menu bar in the Azure portal.|
To run the code in this article in Azure Cloud Shell:
Launch Cloud Shell.
Select the Copy button on a code block to copy the code.
Paste the code into the Cloud Shell session with Ctrl+Shift+V on Windows and Linux, or Cmd+Shift+V on macOS.
Press Enter to run the code.
If you choose to install and use the CLI locally, you need Azure CLI version 2.0 or later. To find the version, run
az --version. If you need to install or upgrade, see Install the Azure CLI.
