Successful Azure DevOps Pipeline Deployment Creates Non-Functioning Application

Jim Copeland 0 Reputation points

We have created a Linux-based Azure Web App Service running dotNet Core 6.0 in our Azure tenant, and want to use Azure DevOps to create a pipeline for deploying code to the dev slot of the app service.

I have been reading up lots of official Microsoft documentation on how to do this, but I am still stuck. We are able to build the pipeline, and deploy a release. The result is successful, but when we actually browse to the web app, the page says " :( Application Error If you are the application administrator, you can access the diagnostic resources."

I am not a developer, but I have been tasked with getting this pipeline setup. This is the most complex pipeline tool I have seen. Can anyone assist with this? I can provide whatever logs or details you need

Thank you!

    first publish the project (via dotnet publish or vs) to a filesystem, so you know what the deployed file structure should be. then compare this to the deployed file structure.

    also check the logs on the server. often its deployed properly, but a configuration value crashes the app at startup.
