Lab description

Azure App Configuration is a centralized configuration store service that offers a simple and flexible solution for storing key-value configuration data. A cloud service running in a wide-scale infrastructure requires a robust configuration management service to handle changes at a centralized location.

Companies building applications often deal with increasing complexity and handling configuration to keep the code secure. It is recommended to keep the configuration separate from the code, in an external entity and must be accessed during runtime. App Configuration solves that issue by providing a secure mechanism to store and access configuration settings outside the application code.

In this hands-on lab, you will understand what App Configuration is and how to deploy and add key-value pairs in the configuration store using the Azure Portal.
