    Deploying Umbraco Forms to Azure


    I have been experiencing issues with Umbraco Forms when deploying the site to a Microsoft Azure instance. The process we are following is to publish the solution within Visual Studio, commit the changes via a git client and then push the files to the Azure deployment repository.

    Any changes made to the forms on the live site are overwritten by the local version. If I exclude or ignore the form files within the git client then the forms do not work at all on live.

    Has anyone else experienced this issue or know of any potential solutions to resolve this.

    Thanks is advance, Matt

    I always copy the live form files folder from live just before a deployment. Maybe you could try that.

    Unfortunately we do not have access to the files on the server and our only means of deployment is via a code push to the Azure repository so this would not work. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    If you are using MsDeploy to deliver - you can follow up this:

    If you are using continuos integration on web apps - it shall not touch content in App_Plugins

    I'm also Experiencing the same issue.

    When ever I deploy the the Website to Production using Azure CI/CD the Umbraco Form file got overwritten and the form section shows the initial installation step and Already created Form also removed from the Form section.

    Anyone has solution for this?

    Thanks in advance Sumesh

    you can move forms to blob storage using a method similar to that for media.

    its hidden the documentation (not sure how you actually navigate to this page)

    but this moves the forms folder, so things will stay between deployments,

    only issue i've had is if you use perplex plugin it does store something in its own app_data folder. but you don't loose forms just structure
