Deploying the ASP.NET Core API to Azure Web Apps – A TimCo Retail Manager Video

In this video, we are going to be deploying our API to Azure Web Apps. Once we get that up and running, a future video will cover how to automate this process using CI/CD as well as how to migrate our databases to Azure SQL Databases.

TimCo Retail Manager Phase 1:

One-off tutorials are awesome but they aren’t the only thing you should be doing to learn C#. Another vital part of learning is learning how to put it all together. This interactive course is all about putting the pieces together. You can watch each video on its own or you can watch them in order and see a bigger picture. The choice is yours.

This course focuses on real-world development. As such, we are simulating that we work for TimCo Enterprise Solutions on a brand new product, the TimCo Retail Manager. Just like in the real world, we are starting out with one set of requirements but know that over time they will change.

  1. Hi Tim
    Just following this video and a few things seem to have changed on Azure since you did the video.
    Most are minor, but when publishing my API to azure I had to create Azure API Management which is a step you didn't do.

  2. Hey, I'm new to Azure and I can't find any info on the web. I'm creating a multiplayer monopoly game with .NET Core WebApi with SignalR to manage WebSockets. Currently, my version works when I open it several times on localhost and I don't know if It will works when I open that several times using the URL given by Azure? My first thought is yes because I can open your application via URL in this video(it's unique) so it should work but I'm not sure so that's why asking. Thanks for any response.

  3. Hey Tim thumbs up for this great tutorial. Have you also posted tutorial with CI/CD pipeline for API deployment? Thanks

  4. Hi Tim awesome video! Does this video work for single page applications? I have a react and .net core application that I would like to deploy.

  5. Hey Tim, loving the course and just bought an all access pass a few days ago. I just gotta say, registering and signing into azure services has been a nightmare for me. I've spent so much time trying to access old accounts to no avail, and registering new accounts forces me to fill in more annoying forms. Their security is so rough compared to any other service I've ever used in my life, it's ridiculous and driving me insane. I hope the actual tools they provide are worth the effort haha

  6. Hello, Tim. Hey, this is a great video. I followed your instructions closely in order to deploy an API I've written, and all I get is that default startup page when deployed. I noticed an error within logs stating that .Net Core 3.1 SDK isn't installed, so I contacted Microsoft about it and they said it needs to be installed manually on Linux. I don't understand why, in my case, I'd need the .Net Core SDK to run my API.

  7. Hi Tim ,I followed the video but end up with HTTP ERROR 404,No webpage was found for the web address: is there anything missing from my side?

  8. Good video. Light can go around the entire world 7 times in 1 second. I'm pretty sure the lag is more of a hardware interaction, as well as software.

  9. Hey Tim so since we are able to go to your timcoapi webpage could we basically build a website like this for free? I guess what I'm asking is besides the ugly url name that includes azurewebsites, is this basically a website?

  10. Hey Tim, I just deployed my API but there is a problem, The website was not showing my API home page but the default one. I went to the logs at the portal, and apparently it couldn't find the .Library. "Unhandled exception. System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'MyAppApi.Library, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null'. The system cannot find the file specified"..

    EDIT 1: After some further lookup, It seems like something is getting messed up when I try to publish and the API is getting built. If I build locally, it works fine. If I publish, as I said it does not work on Azure, but what I can't understand is that it doesnt even run locally. I have to rebuild of it to work, and so on and so forth.. I am lost..

    EDIT 2: Just to see what happens I embedded everything from the api.library to the api so I didnt have to deal with dlls, and it worked.. actually it worked great so yeah.. thats really weird.. What i think happens is that when I hit Publish, something goes wrong with the build and the Library dll does not get included..

    Do you think That I did something wrong ? Anyone else with the same issue?

  11. What if you tried to migrate the whole API to azure functions? That would be something very interesting to see in a real world scenario!

  12. Hi TimCorey your videos are good could you please do more videos on azure devops and as well as how to integrate with web api to azure devops ci/cd pipeline.

  13. Have you ever worked with Polly? " Polly is a .NET resilience and transient-fault-handling library … "

  14. Is it 10 free websites because you have a subscription, or it doesn't matter? Also, if I were to use a SQLite database, would that still be free?

  15. Offtopic: I know this course and your weekly challenge are being developed on a weekly bases, but out of curiosity, when will your next full course come out? Last one I believe came out Jan 22

  16. As usual, good stuff! The price for SQL is a bit of a bummer but, as you noted, you can turn it off. (please include how to turn it off in the next video…)

  17. Question. I followed the video, twice and am still not seeing the login screen from the API. Is anyone else having this same issue it have they resolved it? Thanks in advance!
