Deployment Slots going away? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello! Deployment slots for Function Apps has been in preview for over a year, and a few months ago there was a comment on the issue tracking CLI support for slots saying "we're not adding new functionality to slots." (https://github.com/Azure/azure-functions-core-tools/issues/227#issuecomment-385532310). Can you give us some clarity on the future of deployment slots for function apps? We're starting to build out function apps at my company and it would be VERY helpful to know whether we should use slots or not for new development. Right now evidence seems to be pointing to deployment slots being deprecated soon.

    Thanks!

  • Indeed, we haven't been very clear in that area. Right now, our priority is to GA v2, at which point Slots will still not be GA. But we very much want to  make them work well, so they're not going away. I cannot give an ETA of when it will happen, and I realize it's been in that state for too long, but we will get there.
