How to deploy the Hello World template

The Azion Hello World template deploys an edge application that prints a Hello, World! message in your browser and you can use it as a starting point to become familiar with Azion Edge Platform and edge computing capabilities.


  • A GitHub account to connect with Azion and create your new repository.
    • Every push will be deployed automatically to this repository to keep your project updated.
  • Enable Edge Functions in your Azion account.
    • To do so:
  1. Access Azion Console > Account menu
  2. Select the Billing & Subscriptions option.
  3. Select the Subscriptions tab.
  4. Activate the switch for the module.

To use the Hello World template, access Azion Console and click the + Create button on the homepage.

This will open a modal where you can select Templates > Hello World card.


In the configuration form, you must provide the information to configure your application. Fill in the presented fields.

Fields identified with an asterisk are mandatory.

  1. Connect Azion with your GitHub account.
  • A pop-up window will open to confirm the installation of the Azion GitHub App, a tool that connects your GitHub account with Azion’s platform.
  • Define your permissions and repository access as desired.
  1. Select the Git Scope to work with.
  2. Define a name for your edge application.
  • The bucket for storage and the edge function will use the same name.
  • Use a unique and easy-to-remember name. If the name has already been used, the platform returns an error message.
  1. Click the Deploy button to start the deployment process.

During the deployment, you’ll be able to follow the process through a window showing off the logs. When it’s complete, the page shows information about the application and some options to continue your journey.

By deploying the Hello World template, the script creates an edge application to run on Azion’s platform, including its Azion domain and multiple configurations. It also creates an edge function for the custom logic to show the Hello World! message.

Additionally, a GitHub repository is created in your account to manage the source code. The script installs all required dependencies and registers the deployment details, including information related to the version deployed and the timestamp of changes. The repository includes a GitHub Action to ensure a continuous deployment workflow, keeping your project up to date.

If you want to know more on how to edit and customize your project’s settings, go to the Managing the template section.


Considering that this initial setup may not be optimal for your specific edge application, all settings can be customized any time you need by using Azion Console.

To manage and edit your edge application’s settings, proceed as follows:

  1. Access Azion Console.
  2. On the upper-left corner, select Products menu > Edge Application.
  • You’ll be redirected to the Edge Application page. It lists all the edge applications you’ve created.
  1. Find the edge application related to the Hello World template and select it.
  • The list is organized alphabetically. You can also use the search bar located in the upper-left corner of the list; currently, it filters only by Application Name.

After selecting the edge application you’ll work on, you’ll be directed to a page containing all the settings you can configure.

The edge application created during the deployment has an assigned Azion domain to make it accessible through the browser. The domain has the following format: xxxxxxxxxx.map.azionedge.net. However, you can add a custom domain for users to access your edge application through it.
