ASE Deployment affects other web app deployments.

We have a step in an octopus process that deploys an ASE into Azure.

The problem is while running this step, any code deployment to web apps in azure through Octopus run for almost an hour before timing out, when they usually take just a few minutes.These are web apps in a different resource group, environment and outside of an ASE.

Has anybody else had this problem? What is the root cause? Is this an Octopus issue or an Azure issue?

    Hi Joe,

    Thanks for getting in touch.

    We ran some quick tests to spin up an ASE with an ARM template, and while that was happening, we were able to deploy an Azure AppService/WebApp to the AzureCloud without problems from the same Octopus Server. From Octopus' point of view, as long as your task cap is set to > 1 (see Configuration > Nodes, then Task Cap), it should be able to execute multiple tasks without issue.

    Can you confirm this is happening consistently? If so, would you be able to attach a raw task log of the web-app task that's timing out, and we'll see if there's anything in the log that provides any clues? Could you also please attach the raw log of the ASE deployment that is seemingly blocking the web-app deployment?

    You can mark this discussion private (in the sidebar) so only Octopus Staff will see the details of your logs (or remove areas of the logs that you want to keep private).

    A quick test to see if this is occurring in Azure would possibly be to deploy from multiple Visual Studio windows, from the same server. E.g. One to deploy your ASE ARM template (with the same parameters that Octopus is setup to deploy), then while that's deploying, try and deploy your web-app (also with the exact same parameters Octopus is using).
