GitHub Actions for deploying to Azure

Automate your GitHub workflows using Azure Actions

GitHub Actions gives you the flexibility to build an automated software development lifecycle workflow. With GitHub Actions for Azure you can create workflows that you can set up in your repository to build, test, package, release and deploy to Azure.

GitHub Action for Azure Login

With the Azure login Action, you can automate your workflow to do an Azure login using Azure service principal and run Az CLI scripts.

Get started today with a free Azure account!

This repository contains GitHub Action for Azure Login.

Sample workflow that uses Azure login action to run az cli

# File: .github/workflows/workflow.yml

on: [push]

name: AzureLoginSample


    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    - uses: azure/login@v1
        creds: ${{ secrets.AZURE_CREDENTIALS }}
    - run: |
        az webapp list --query "[?state=='Running']"

Configure Azure credentials:

To fetch the credentials required to authenticate with Azure, run the following command to generate an Azure Service Principal (SPN) with Contributor permissions:

az ad sp create-for-rbac --name "myApp" --role contributor \
                            --scopes /subscriptions/{subscription-id}/resourceGroups/{resource-group} \
  # Replace {subscription-id}, {resource-group} with the subscription, resource group details of your keyvault

  # The command should output a JSON object similar to this:

    "clientId": "<GUID>",
    "clientSecret": "<GUID>",
    "subscriptionId": "<GUID>",
    "tenantId": "<GUID>",

Add the json output as a secret (let's say with the name AZURE_CREDENTIALS) in the GitHub repository.
