Azure cloud service deployment environments

In our setup, we have several cloud services in a single solution. For a given test environment, e.g. QA, we'll have 4 projects to deploy. This means we have to create 4 separate environments in Appveyor. Then if we want to do a UAT release, that's another 4 etc.

It would be great if we could link an Azure subscription once, then reference that for each environment, perhaps just specifying the target cloud service name and artefact etc.

    OK, I see what you mean. We could have something like:

    - provider: Environment
      name: azure-cs
      service_name: prod-cs
      artifact: Package1.cspkg
    - provider: Environment
      name: azure-cs
      service_name: qa-cs
      artifact: Package2.cspkg

    where azure-cs is the name of Azure Cloud Service environment defined under "Environments".

    Does it look like what you need?

    That would be fantastic. Eventually we could have some 30 different configurations over 4 subscriptions here, so that would make it so much easier.

    Great, it doesn't look hard to implement.
