I'm in the process of creating a Azure based Provider-hosted App in SharePoint 2013. I created a website in azure portal with a licensed account and downloaded the publish profile file. Then I created a Provider-hosted project in Visual
studio 2012 on a SharePoint 2013 installed virtual server and published the profile. Imported the published profile and using
Web Deploy as Publishing method. When I click on "Validate Connection" button , its getting failed. I tried different solutions like
a) added the user in admin group of my machine b) tried different Service URL's like waws-prod-hk1-001.publish.azurewebsites.windows.net:443 , https://waws-prod-hk1-001.publish.azurewebsites.windows.net:8172/msdeploy.axd etc
but no success :( .
How to Validate the connection for Web Deploy Publishing method using Azure WebSite ?
