Module 26 : Stage a web app deployment for testing and rollback by using App Service deployment slots

Deepika 20 Reputation points

Dear Microsoft Team,

I created a webapp connected it to the local git.

In the following step: Git/FTPS credentials tab. The User scope section with username and passw was disabled. Therefore, I could not set the credentials.

Select the Local Git/FTPS credentials tab. Under User scope, enter a unique username and password of your choice, and then in the command bar, select Save. Make a note of the username and password for later.

I have not set any usernames and passwords. What password is it expecting from me?

Consequently, in the BASH prompt I got a fatal error. 

deepika [ ~/demoapp/app-service-web-dotnet-get-started ]$ git remote add production

deepika [ ~/demoapp/app-service-web-dotnet-get-started ]$ git push production

Password for '': 

fatal: Authentication failed for ''

However: On The Local Git/FTP credentials pane,

Git Clone Uri:

  • Application scope

Local Git Username: ababbaba

Password: xxxxxxxxxxxx

So alternatively I tried this out for git push credentials, As a result, webapp was up. But Git push and did not succeed.

This learn module is very confusing. Azure webapp part is clear, but connecting to Git and moving code to Git is not clear.

It would be great if some one can join on Teams and explain this concept.

Please help.

Thank you
