How to deploy the Next.js App + Configurations template

The Next.js App + Configurations template provides a quick start to build a Next.js application with custom configurations and App Router to run it directly on the edge.

This template deploys a basic Next.js application containing a domain to access the Single-Page Application (SPA), as well as an Edge Storage configuration, cache settings, Gzip compression, and Rules Engine rules to improve the performance and delivery of static files. Additionally, it creates a new GitHub repository, including a GitHub Action to enable a continuous development workflow and keep your application up to date.

Next.js App + Configurations also creates files to implement the App Router format, including the index page, edge API routing, and Custom Route Handlers, created in the new repository during the deployment.

This template uses Next version 13.5.6.


To use this template, you need:

  1. Access Console > Account menu.
  2. Select the Billing & Subscriptions option.
  3. Select the Subscriptions tab.
  4. Activate the switch for each module.

To start using this template, access Azion Console and click the + Create button on the homepage.

This will open a modal where you can select Templates > Next.js App + Configurations 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.


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

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

  1. Access Azion Console > Edge Application.
  • You’ll be redirected to the Edge Application page. It lists all the edge applications you’ve created.
  1. Select the edge application related to this template.
  • 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.
