Azure Cosmos DB Account with Web App

Last updated: 31/01/2022

This template deploys an Azure Cosmos DB account, an App Service Plan, and creates a Web App in the App Service Plan. It also adds two Application settings to the Web App that reference the Azure Cosmos DB account endpoint. This way solutions deployed to the Web App can connect to the Azure Cosmos DB account endpoint using those settings.
