Microsoft Azure – Cloning Web Apps using Azure App Services
In this article, we will look into the process of cloning web apps in Azure App Services. If you have an existing application in Azure App Services that you like to have copied over into another region, one option you have is to simply clone it.
Follow the below steps to clone and Azure App to another region:
Step 1: In the search bar search “clone” and click on “Clone app”.
Step 2: Here we need to give it a new unique name. We will put this in an existing resource script that we already have. Here, in the app service plan, we could select a new region that we want to go into.
Step 3: Next, we will hit “Clone Settings”. In this section, you’ll see that we can clone items, such as the application settings, connection strings, deployment source, and even custom domains. Here we’ll select “OK”, and we’ll go ahead and hit “Create”.
In just a few moments, our application will be copied over into a new instance, running in that region that we selected.
If we select the bell option and go to “Resource”. We can see a new instance of our application deployed, with its respective URL.
This is how you clone an Azure App service.
