Azure Web App: lost write access

Ivanhoe 0 Reputation points


I use Visual Studio Enterprise free Azure Subscription (free 140 Euro / month). My Azure web app was created an configured several years ago. It works good stable. I used SFTP to add some files.

Web App is hosted using App Service plan, Windows, SKU: Basic (B1)

Today I found this message on the top of Deployment Center / Settings: You do not have write permissions to make any changes. Deployment Center Settings are empty. Deployment Center / FTPS Credentials shows: Write permission on the site or the slot is required to view credentials.

How to fix it?

    As to view credentials write permission is required.

    Refer to this tutorial for granting access- Grant a user access to Azure resources using the Azure portal
