I'm on azure learning Create cloud native apps with Azure and open-source software / Orchestrate containers for cloud-native apps with AKS

currently in activity 7 of 9 and I've successfully built out a container registry, azure subscription, k8s cluster and deployed the express app from the tutorial.

However the last step involves navigating to my newly created resource / configuration / application settings

The current GUI does not seem to have any application setting I can access. Can this be done via CLI somehow?

This question is related to the following Learning Module

    Hi Tim McKiernan,

    Thank you for reaching out to us on Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Yes, You can configure application settings for your Azure Web App using the Azure CLI.  

    Here’s a detailed step-by-step guide:

    1.Open the Azure Cloud Shell.

    2.Set the name of your web app:

    WEBAPPNAME=<webapp-name> 
    
    

    3.Set the resource group name:

    RESOURCEGROUP=<resource-group-name>
    

    4.Configure the application setting for your web app:

    az webapp config appsettings set --name $WEBAPPNAME --resource-group $RESOURCEGROUP --settings SOCKET_SERVER_URL=<aksapp.io FQDN URL>
    

     

    Make sure to replace <webapp-name>, <resource-group-name>, and <aksapp.io FQDN URL> with the actual values you used in your setup.

    This will set the SOCKET_SERVER_URL application setting for your web app using the Azure CLI.
