We're trying to setup a Github Action that will deploy our software to Azure. Our software is not multi-tenant-aware, so we deploy a replica of the software into a fresh Azure Resource Group for each tenant. So far this has been no problem. Our Github Action has an event input into which we can provide the resource group name and from there it can deploy to that resource group.
With Static Web Apps, though, the Azure API token is generated behind a black box, as is the deployment process. I don't want to have a Github Action workflow and repository secret for each tenant that we want to deploy to.
It looks to me like the auto-generated secret likely somehow specifies which resource group to deploy to, since I see no other way for the "Azurefirstname.lastname@example.org" Github Action to know where it is to be deploying to.
The Azure Portal automatically creates this secret token and adds it with a name like: AZURE_STATIC_WEB_APPS_API_TOKEN_LEMON_WAVE_00AD12A10
Obviously there is a way to create this token, but has that been discussed or outlined anywhere?
Ideally, I'd be able to create that token as-needed and perform a manual deploy using the Azure Static Web Apps Deploy Github Action into any resource group that I need, without duplicating workflows and github secrets.
The service itself seems great and like a clear upgrade over Azure Storage static web apps. The current deployment options are terrible though - why only from a specific github repo and to a specific Azure Resource Group? Why not expose the ability to deploy to anywhere as needed?
