Azure website swapping — what will move and what not.

When we swap deployment slots, all of the website content is swapped, but the not the configuration.

The following configuration items will move to the destination slot:

■■ General settings (for example, .NET framework version, Web Sockets, Always On)
■■ Connection strings
■■ Handler mappings
■■ Application and site diagnostics settings
■■ Monitoring settings

The following configuration items will not move to the destination slot:
■■ Publishing endpoints
■■ Custom domain names
■■ SSL certificates and bindings
■■ Scale settings

Note: this means that settings such as your db connectiong strings should be configured with the prod values before swapping.
