App Configuration

Fast, scalable parameter storage for app configuration

Configure, store and retrieve parameters and settings

Store configurations for all your Azure apps in a universal, hosted location. Manage configurations effectively and reliably, in real time, without affecting customers by avoiding time-consuming redeployments. Azure App Configuration is built for speed, scalability and security.

Universal, fully managed configuration store

Fast retrieval of configurations for any Azure application

Complete data encryption, at rest or in transit

Respond in real time to changing demands

Toggle specific features behind feature flags, and fix critical problems in real time. The flexibility provided by avoiding costly redeployments gives you more control when it matters most.

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 for 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 optimised for hierarchical and/or dynamic application settings.
