Deploying a WebJob using PowerShell ARM Cmdlets

David Ebbo edited this page Aug 3, 2017 · 1 revision

In the classic Powershell Cmdlets you could publish a WebJob using the New-AzureWebsiteJob cmdlet.

There is no direct equivalent in the ARM PowerShell Cmdlets.

The script below will allow you to do this.

#Resource details :
$resourceGroupName = "<Resourcegroup name>";
$webAppName = "<WebApp name>";
$Apiversion = 2015-08-01

#Function to get Publishing credentials for the WebApp :
function Get-PublishingProfileCredentials($resourceGroupName, $webAppName){

$resourceType = "Microsoft.Web/sites/config"
$resourceName = "$webAppName/publishingcredentials"
$publishingCredentials = Invoke-AzureRmResourceAction -ResourceGroupName $resourceGroupName -ResourceType 
$resourceType -ResourceName $resourceName -Action list -ApiVersion $Apiversion -Force
   return $publishingCredentials

#Pulling authorization access token :
function Get-KuduApiAuthorisationHeaderValue($resourceGroupName, $webAppName){

$publishingCredentials = Get-PublishingProfileCredentials $resourceGroupName $webAppName
return ("Basic {0}" -f [Convert]::ToBase64String([Text.Encoding]::ASCII.GetBytes(("{0}:{1}" -f 
$publishingCredentials.Properties.PublishingUserName, $publishingCredentials.Properties.PublishingPassword))))

$accessToken = Get-KuduApiAuthorisationHeaderValue $resourceGroupName $webAppname
#Generating header to create and publish the Webjob :
$Header = @{
'Content-Disposition'='attachment; attachment;'
$apiUrl = "https://$<Webjob-type>/<Webjob-name>"
$result = Invoke-RestMethod -Uri $apiUrl -Headers $Header -Method put -InFile "<Complete path of the file>\
<filename>.zip" -ContentType 'application/zip' 
#NOTE: Update the above script with the parameters highlighted and run in order to push a new Webjob under the specified WebApp.

Once the WebJob is published you can use the following commands to list,start/stop or delete the WebJob.

#Get list of all Webjobs
Get-AzureRmResource -ResourceGroupName $ResourceGroupName -ResourceName $AppService -ResourceType 
microsoft.web/sites/<Webjob-type> -ApiVersion $Apiversion 

#Start/Stop the Webjobs
Invoke-AzureRmResourceAction -ApiVersion $Apiversion  -ResourceGroupName $ResourceGroupName -ResourceName 
$ResourceName -ResourceType microsoft.web/sites/<Webjob-type> -Action start/stop  -Force

#Delete a Webjob
Remove-AzureRmResource -ApiVersion $Apiversion  -ResourceGroupName $ResourceGroupName -ResourceName $ResourceName -
ResourceType microsoft.web/sites/<Webjob-type>/<Webjob-name> -Force
