0 votes

New to Azure App Service, following, I am trying to experiment to deploy WebGoat to Azure App, but unsuccessful.

git clone
cd WebGoat
git checkout v8.0.0.M26
mvn install -T 4 -Dmaven.test.skip=true -DskipTests
cd webgoat-server

//here I could deploy the jar locally with 
//$java -jar target/webgoat-server-v8.0.0.M26.jar
//and see the site at localhost:8080/WebGoat

//now trying to deploy to azure using Azure maven plguin
vim pom.xml //as per below
mvn package azure-webapp:deploy

my webgoat-server/pom.xml

            <javaVersion>Java 11</javaVersion>
            <webContainer>Java SE</webContainer>

what I got from azure app service | log stream,

In APPLICATION SETTINGS you need to set the key/value pair WEBSITES_PORT in order to expose port 8080 on the app service.

In terms of location, you should install the app in site/home/wwwroot. To see the virtual directories, navigate to configuration -> Path mappings.
