Mobile service disappeared and became web app RRS feed

  • Question

  • Couple of years ago, we created a mobile service on Azure which is a custom api written in node js. On Sept 30th 2016 we noticed that the mobile service just disappeared (from Azure classic portal -> mobile services) and now shows up under "Web Apps"  (Azure classic portal -> web apps).

    Does anyone know why that occurred?

    Is Azure killing/merging mobile services in favour of web apps and if so, what are the implications?

     Thanks.

    Post migration to Web Apps, it seems we have lost our capability to push to Azure from Git. I can update our api code from Azure's online editor but there is no way to push changes from local or pull the updates.

    Can someone identify the reason for this?

    Thanks.

  • Azure's online editor does not commit changes to your git repository. So it is recommended to use either online editor / git / commit your changes to git periodically so that changes are not lost.

    About you losing capability to push to Azure, can you please give more details on exact issue you are facing like (can you sync repo / not able to push changes) & more information about your service (subscriptionId / service name).

  • Thanks Sandeep.

    Previously, when we were on mobile apps platform, any changes we made on online editor were automatically getting committed on the associated git repo's master branch. We could then do a pull, get latest updates and push updates from local but not any more. The last commit I see on the repo is from Sept 27th, the day when our instance got migrated. All new changes made afterwards through online editor did not commit.
