Join Tiago Costa for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a web app on the Azure portal, part of Azure Administration: Implement and Manage Application Services.
- So, now let's create a Web App. So, we're in the homepage of our Azure portal. Let's create on Create a resource. Then let's search for Web App. There we go, Web App. We need to click Create. And now, under Resource Group, we're going to select our previous resource group that we created for our demos, which is asp-demo. And now I need a name. Let's just say LinkedIn learning demo. It's available, so this needs to be global unique, because it's under the azurewebsites.net domain name. I need to select what kind of Web App I want to publish, which is Code or it will be a Docker Image. In our case, Code is fine, and it's going to be a .NET Core 2.2 app, what I'm going to build. So, there we go, .NET Core 2.2 will be our runtime stack and because .NET Core can run both on Windows or Linux, we have the choice here, so I can choose one or the other. I'm going to stick with Windows. And the region I'm going for is US and if I scroll down, if we wait a little bit, there we go. I have the option here to deploy this Web App in the app service that we also created previously and is exactly what I want. Next, I need to go to the Monitoring and in Monitoring, I need to select if I want to create an Application Insight, the resource associated with this app or not. I'm going to select no, I don't want this is not the target of this course here. Next, I can define tags for my Web App. I'm also not going to do anything under Tags. Next, will be the review and create, so we can review if everything is under the specs that we need. It is, okay, so I will just click Create. And this will take like 30-40 seconds and then we have a Web App available. And there we go, we have our Web App created. We can use this shortcut here button, go to Resource, and we go straight to our Web App. So, this is our Web App. We have the URL on the top corner on the right. So, https://lildemo.azurewebsites.net and of course now we need to deploy something to this Web App. But this is how easy it is to create a Web App under Azure.
This course is an ideal deep dive for Azure admins and DevOps professionals wishing to understand more about how to use Azure App Service—as well as anyone wishing to advance their App Service skills in preparation for the AZ-103 Azure Admin exam.
