[ Question ] Deploy Azure App Service step

Hello Octopus Team,

I’d like to have some explanations about the new “Deploy Azure App Service” step.

Infrastructure :

  • Azure Container Registry
  • WebApp (using container)

Before you released that new step I created some scripts using az cli to change the image TAG and let the WebApp’s mechanims do the update pulling directly from the ACR.

I’m willing to use your new step to avoid extra scripts maintenance but it seems that your step is trying to acquire the Docker image as if it was an Artefact, and lead to an error.

I don’t understand the interest on such behavior for WebApps. :thinking:
Did I missed a point? Or is that how i’ts suppose to run?

Thanks for your anwers,

Best regards,


Hi @gregory.blanc,

Sorry to see you’re running into issue getting this step to work properly.

For clarity on the issue, I am wondering if it would be possible for you to upload your Process JSON for this particular project? It can be located here:

You can direct message it to me if you would rather it not be public.

Looking forward to hearing back.
