Access and Edit Web App files hosted in Azure

January 26, 2017 Leave a comment

I have an Asp.Net Web application hosted as a Web App in my Azure instance.

One of the requirement I frequently get is to view or edit the published ‘Web App’ files from Azure Portal.

As we cannot access the ‘Web App’ files from Azure portal, one of the simpler way to access the files is by using the Visual Studio ‘Server Explorer’.

  • From the Visual Studio, open the ‘Server Explorer’ window

visual-studio-server-explorer

  • Connect to the Azure Subscription
  • Select the Web App under ‘App Services’ node and access the files.

Pre-requisites:

  • You need to have Azure SDK 2.7 installed.
  • Visual studio 2013 or higher version.
