Questions for a New User

I have been using AppVeyor for a few days now and things are going well.
I confess that I have not read the entire documentation yet.
I have some questions I hope somebody can answer:

1. We can define environment in the project and outside the project.If we define them outside the project we can simply refer to them in the project configuration. What is the benefit of defining Environment outside the project?

2. It seems to me that the deployment process expects the container services to already exist in Azure. For Cloud service it wants to know what the name is. For Azure website it wants to know the passwords etc. Is it possible to automate the entire provisioning process without having to create services upfront. As an example can I create a brand new environment in Azure create a cloud service, create a website, create azure db and deploy the code with the help of AppVeyor. Is this possible? Is there a drawback with this approach.

    To answer the first question please take a look at Overview section in this article:

    Regarding Azure automation deployment - we could have something built-in in the future based on Azure Resource Manager. For now I think you can utilize PowerShell for that.
