Deprecating Service Management API support for Azure App Service

Monday, March 19, 2018

Azure Service Management support will be retired on June 30, 2018. After that, Azure App Service resource management will be supported only through Azure Resource Manager.

The Service Management APIs are not well suited for the modern cloud. Supporting Service Management APIs any longer will hold us back from delivering a premium developer experience and control at plane scale.

Customers currently using the Service Management APIs will be better served by moving to Resource Manager. Resource Manager has many benefits over Service Management, like a robust deployment model, role-based access, and better API support for features. For more information about the difference between Service Management and Resource Manager, see the TechNet blog.
