I would like to have different instance types for different service configrations. I see that this is not possible with visual studio. Is it possible to write an appveyor script, so that appveyor changes the instance type before deploying?

thank you.

    If I'm not mistaken instance size is baked into .cspkg package file and it couldn't be easily changed without altering the package. However, you can change instance size/count after deployment on Azure Portal.

    I thiught you could only change the count. Not the size. Am i mistaken?

    Looks like you are right :-/

    Then it's rebuilding the package for different environments. You may try googling for possible solutions - would be interesting to know about your findings.

    Well, this is straightforward, but it's still there, inside the package and no way to change that at the time of deployment.
