Preview: Azure App Service cloning now available between regions

Friday, January 22, 2016

A new option was added to New-AzureRMWebApp in Azure PowerShell version 1.1.0 that gives users the ability to clone an existing web app to a newly created app in a different region or in the same region. This enables customers to easily and quickly deploy a number of apps across different regions. These features are now available:
  • Clone an existing app
  • Clone an existing app to an app service environment
  • Clone an existing app slot
  • Configure Traffic Manager while cloning a app
App cloning is currently only supported for premium tier app service plans. The new feature uses the same limitations as the Web Apps Backup feature. For more information, see:
