When taking site offline during deploy, it is possible yet to add a custom app_offline file?

    Hi Julian,

    We do not control this file content, we just use managed Microsoft.Web.Deployment API to set this rule, and it populates this file with default content.

    However I remember I needed to provide a workaround when this temporary did not work on Azure. Please check this post. I believe you can use this approach with having custom content of app_offline_tmp.htm. Or you can change it on the fly, if you need it.
