When it comes to deploying applications to the cloud, Azure DevOps Pipeline is an excellent choice for automating the process. By using DevOps Pipeline, developers can easily build, test, and deploy their applications to Azure with just a few clicks. One of the most critical steps in the process is connecting the pipeline to a new app service. In this article, we will discuss how to do this in detail.

Firstly, developers need to create a new app service on Azure. This can be done by logging into the Azure portal and creating a new resource. Once the app service is created, developers need to get the publishing profile for the app service. This can be done by clicking on the “Get publish profile” button on the app service’s dashboard.

Next, developers need to add the publishing profile to the Azure DevOps pipeline. This can be done by opening the pipeline and going to the “Deploy Azure App Service” task. From there, developers can click on the “Add” button next to “Publishing Profile” and upload the profile they just downloaded.

Once the publishing profile is added, developers need to set up the deployment credentials for the app service. This can be done by going to the app service’s dashboard and clicking on the “Deployment Center” tab. From there, developers can choose the deployment option they prefer and set up the credentials accordingly.

With the publishing profile and deployment credentials in place, developers can now deploy their application to the new app service. This can be done by triggering the Azure DevOps pipeline manually or setting up a continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipeline.

In conclusion, connecting Azure DevOps Pipeline to a new app service is a critical step in deploying applications to the cloud. By following the steps outlined above, developers can easily set up the connection and deploy their applications with ease. With Azure DevOps Pipeline and Azure App Service, developers can automate their deployment processes and focus on creating amazing applications that deliver a great user experience.
