Why can't the app service plan

Andrew Duffy 0 Reputation points

I have an azure app service in Region X, running windows and in resource group Y

I have a new app service plan in Region X, running windows and in resource group Y I moved the app service over to the same resource group (Y) as the new app service plan. Fine. Done. Now when I go to move the app service to the new app service plan, the "Change App Service" plan screen doesn't show the new app service plan in the drop down, it's only showing app service plans which are in the old resource group. Why? Your docs say this will work

Your docs say
"In brief, all plans created with the same resource group, region combination and operating system are deployed into the same webspace"

    Hi Andrew,

    Changing the resource group doesn't change the underlying webspace. The app service was deployed into a webspace when it created, and this can't be changed afterwards. That explains why you don't see the App Service plan in the list.

    qna webspace move
