Using Deployment Slots in Azure App Service

8m 12s

Azure App Service makes it easy to deploy a new version of an app to production, but you’d normally want to test it thoroughly first. So you need a testing environment that’s as close as possible to your production environment. App Service has a great solution. It’s called a deployment slot. In this lesson, we’ll show you how to use deployment slots in a variety of ways.

Learning Objectives

  • Create and use deployment slots on Azure App Service
  • Configure App Service deployment slots with slot-specific settings, auto swap, custom warm-up, and traffic splitting

Intended Audience

  • Anyone who wants to learn an easy method to test code before putting it into production on Azure App Service
