Good day,

If I clone the app service on the deployment slot will it have a separate cost?

Regards,

    @Enric Jeims Agra ,

    Each App Service plan tier supports a different number of deployment slots. There's no additional charge for using deployment slots. To find out the number of slots your app's tier supports, see App Service limits.

    However, note that the resources used by the cloned deployment slot will still count towards the resource usage of the original App Service plan. This means that if you have a limited amount of resources available in your App Service plan, creating multiple deployment slots could potentially impact the performance of your app.

    Also, note that if you configure the cloned deployment slot to use additional resources (such as a larger VM size or more instances), this could result in additional costs. So, it's important to monitor your resource usage and adjust your App Service plan accordingly to avoid unexpected charges.

    Hence, cloning an Azure App Service deployment slot itself does not incur any additional cost, but the resources used by the cloned slot will still count towards the resource usage of the original App Service plan.

    You maybe interested to know about the following questions, kindly take a look at the FAQs from this doc: Azure App Service plan overview

    • Should I put an app in a new plan or an existing plan?
    • How much does my App Service plan cost?
    • What if my app needs more capabilities or features?

    it does not incur any additional cost on its own. Deployment slots are a feature of Azure App Service that allow you to create separate environments for testing, staging, or other purposes without the need for separate App Service plans.

    The cost of the deployment slot is included in the cost of the App Service plan to which it belongs. The App Service plan determines the pricing for your entire App Service, including all deployment slots associated with it. You are billed based on the size and pricing tier of the App Service plan, and any deployment slots created within that plan do not have individual costs.

    It's worth noting that deployment slots share resources with the main production slot of your App Service plan. So while there is no additional cost for the deployment slot itself, the usage of resources by both the production slot and the deployment slot will contribute to the overall cost of the App Service plan.

    In summary, creating a deployment slot within an App Service plan does not result in a separate cost. The cost is determined by the App Service plan and includes all slots created within that plan.
