Reduce configuration complexity across multiple environments

Modern programs, especially those running in a cloud, have several distributed components. Spreading configuration settings across these components leads to hard-to-troubleshoot errors during application deployments. Using a universal configuration store for all your settings helps eliminate these errors.

Improve security by separating configuration from code

Help secure your apps by keeping data separate from code. Storing configuration settings in a hosted environment helps keep data secure as long as you need.

Frequently asked questions about App Configuration

  • App Configuration helps you manage application settings and control their access centrally. It also simplifies your deployment tasks and eases the burden of dealing with permutations of configurations created by multiple applications, dependencies, and environments.
  • App Configuration is complementary to Key Vault. They’re typically used side by side to store and distribute application configuration data. While Key Vault is designed for secret management and operations, App Configuration is optimized for hierarchical and/or dynamic application settings.
  • App Configuration is available in preview in the East US, Central US, West Central US, West US, West Europe, and Southeast Asia regions.
