Deploy to Azure button

The Deploy to Azure button takes the sting out of deployment. Just click the button and the wizard will guide you through the process. How to set this up?

I’ve got my ASPNET MVC4 project in github. Every builds local. First I’ll try the process by supplying the repository in the querystring:

Browsing to the URL triggers the build and deploy of the project in the repository. But the deployment fails with little to no details (Git deployment failed)


In the azure portal the details of the failure are logged. Seems a framework issue that failed the build.


Azure websites are framework 3.5 or 4.5. Setting the framework of the project to .NET 4.5 and doing a nuget upgrade fixed the build and the deployment completed with no more issues.

Working in a DevOps team is the best thing that happened to me. I like challenges and sharing the solutions with others. On my blog I’ll mostly post about my work, but expect an occasional home project, productivity tip and tooling review.
