This API is accessed the same way as the git endpoint. e.g. if your git URL is https://yoursite.scm.azurewebsites.net/yoursite.git, then the API to get the list of deployments will be https://yoursite.scm.azurewebsites.net/deployments.

The credentials you use are the same as when you git push. See Deployment-credentials for more details.

scm

Note: in older builds, use /live/scm instead of /api/scm

GET /api/scm/info
Get information about the repository

POST /api/scm/clean 
Clean the repository, using 'git clean -xdff'

DELETE /api/scm 
Delete the repository

Command

POST /api/command
Executes an arbitrary command line and return its output

The JSON body of the post should look like this, passing the command and the folder it should run in:

{
    "command": 'echo Hello World',
    "dir": 'site\\repository'
}

VFS

The VFS API is based on https://github.com/c9/vfs-http-adapter. Paths with trailing slashes are treated as directories.

Note: when updating or deleting a file, ETag behavior will apply. You can pass a If-Match: "*" header to disable the ETag check.

GET /api/vfs/{path}
Gets a file at path

GET /api/vfs/{path}/
Lists files at directory specified by path.

PUT /api/vfs/{path}
Puts a file at path.

PUT /api/vfs/{path}/
Creates a directory at path. The path can be nested, e.g. `folder1/folder2`.

DELETE /api/vfs/{path}
Delete the file at path.

Zip

The Zip API allows downloading folders as zip files, or expanding zip files into folders.

GET /api/zip/{path}/
Zip up and download the specified folder. The zip doesn't include the top folder itself. Make sure you include
the trailing slash!

PUT /api/zip/{path}/
Upload a zip file which gets expanded into the specified folder. Existing files are not deleted
unless they need to be overwritten by files in the zip. The path can be nested (e.g. `folder1/folder2`), and needs to exist.

Deployment

GET /api/deployments
Get the list of all deployments

GET /api/deployments/{id}
Get a deployment

PUT /api/deployments/{id}
This API has 2 behaviors based on the payload.

  - Redeploy a current or previous deployment
    {id} is optional. If not provided, redeploy the current head.
    payload (optional):
    {
      clean: false,        // optional, whether to run git clean -xdf before building
      needFileUpdate: true // optional, whether to run git checkout (good to skip checkout big repo) 
    }

  - Add a deployment status to history
    {id} is required.
    payload (required):
    {
      status: 3|4,                               // required, whether failed (3) or success (4) status
      message: "commit message",                 // required, commit message  
      author: "John Smith",                      // required
      deployer: "VSO",                           // required, deployer service      
      author_email: "john@smith.com",            // optional
      start_time: "2015-09-09T22:39:50.0052315Z",// optional, when the deployment started
      end_time: "2015-09-09T22:39:50.0052315Z",  // optional, when the deployment ended
      active: true,                              // optional, this is latest deployment
      details: "https://foo.com/details"         // optional, url to get more details
    }

DELETE /api/deployments/{id}
Delete a deployment

GET /api/deployments/{id}/log
Get the list of log entries for a deployment

GET /api/deployments/{id}/log/{logId}
Get the list of log entry details for a log entry

POST /deploy
Payload: { format: 'basic', url: 'https://github.com/SomeOrg/SomeRepo.git' } 
Or when using ssh: { format: 'basic', url: 'git@github.com:SomeOrg/SomeRepo.git' }
Trigger a new deployment from that repository 

POST /deploy
Payload: { format: 'basic', url: 'https://github.com/SomeOrg/SomeRepo.git#<commit_sha>' } 
Trigger a new deployment from that repository for certain commit. Note that <commit_sha> needs to be a sha and not a branch/tag.

See this page for information on switching branch: Deployment branch

SSHKey

GET /api/sshkey?ensurePublicKey=1
Generate the private/public key pair (if not already created), and return the public key as a string. e.g. "ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc..."

The PUT method still exists, but should be avoided as it involves sending the private key over. GET with ensurePublicKey=1 should be used instead.

PUT /api/sshkey 
Set the private key. The supported key format is privacy enhanced mail (PEM)

GET /api/sshkey 
Get the public key.

If you plan to copy a private SSH key from one site to another, you may do as follow;

  • download key to local: curl "https://user:password@siteA.scm.azurewebsites.net/api/vfs/.ssh/id_rsa" -o c:\temp\id_rsa
  • upload key to site: curl "https://user:password@siteB.scm.azurewebsites.net/api/sshkey" --upload-file c:\temp\id_rsa
