Azure Web Apps is a fast and simple way to create web apps using ASP.NET, Java, Node.js, Python, and other languages and frameworks. Deliver value faster to your customers with a continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipeline that pushes each of your changes automatically to Azure Web Apps.

- Identify the work item in the backlog.
- Change the application source code.
- Commit your application code and configuration to a code repository, while linking the commit to the work item.
- Changes to the repo trigger continuous integration for building and testing the application.
- The build pipeline builds the application and runs tests.
- Upon successful build pipeline execution, the continuous deployment trigger orchestrates the deployment of application artifacts with environment-specific parameters.
- Once the app is deployed, Azure Application Insights collects health, performance, and usage data.
- Review the health, performance, and usage information.
- Create new issues or update backlog items with Application Insights data.
- Azure Web Apps: Quickly create and deploy mission-critical Web apps at scale. Azure Web Apps has many offerings, including Windows Web Apps, Linux Web Apps, and Web Apps for Containers.
- Code repository:
- Azure DevOps: Services for teams to share code, track work, and ship software. DevOps services include Azure Boards, Repos, and Pipelines.
- GitHub: Azure Web Apps can be set to integrate with GitHub repositories and configure deployment with GitHub Actions, during the creation phase as well as post creation.
- Other source code repositories: Azure Web Apps can also integrate with other source code repositories post app creation. Configure continuous deployment to Azure App Service.
- An editor from the Visual Studio family for Azure development, including:
- Visual Studio: A creative launch pad for viewing and editing code, then debugging, building, and publishing apps for Android, iOS, Windows, the web, and the cloud.
- Visual Studio for Mac: Develop apps and games for iOS, Android, and the web using .NET on a Mac.
- Visual Studio Code: A free, cross-platform, lightweight, extensible code editor. Visual Studio Code is available as a desktop application or via the web. Extensions are available for languages and frameworks that are supported by Azure Web Apps, which include C#, Java, Python, Node.js, PHP, and Ruby.
- Azure Monitor: Detect, triage, and diagnose issues in your web apps and services using Application Insights, a feature of Azure Monitor.
