Azion Templates are available via Azion Console, Azion’s configuration interface. Customers can select the desired template, complete the setup, and start the deployment.

The execution of these templates involves:

  • Edge application creation: an edge application is set up on Azion’s platform, enabling the management of all your settings.
  • Domain setup: a new Azion domain is configured to provide access to your edge application. You can also add a custom domain to this edge application.
  • Configurations setup: defined according to the use case, to ensure optimal performance and security.
  • Edge function creation: some cases include the creation of an edge function, providing the arguments with the custom logic and the required dependencies.
  • GitHub repository creation: this repository contains all the files related to the template, including the edge function, an action to enable continuous deployment workflow, and trackable deployment history.

Once the template is deployed, you also have full control over customizing all settings at any time you need.


Main configurations and characteristics

Section titled Main configurations and characteristics

After selecting a template that matches your needs, you only have to complete a few steps to quickly deploy the template to the edge through Azion Console, Azion’s configuration interface. With this, you don’t need to start from scratch and can have a project running in a few minutes.

Azion Templates enable the automation of creating new edge applications, reducing development errors, saving time, ensuring consistency, and offering the opportunity to test edge capabilities.

After deployment, an edge application, an edge function, and a GitHub repository are created, including some initial configurations to run the template. This architecture allows an efficient management and continuous deployment workflow.

By using these templates, the applications run on the Azion Edge Platform, taking advantage of a distributed network to accelerate delivery and a use safer environment. Being part of the Azion’s platform, you can also benefit from using other Azion products to enhance your applications.

You can update and customize your application settings via Azion Console as well as add a custom domain for users to access your edge application through it. Additionally, the GitHub repository includes a GitHub Action that you’re able to activate and enable continuous deployment and integration between your repository and Azion’s platform.

Some templates work with third-party tools to provide a more comprehensive and modern solution. Using this type of template will require compliance with certain requirements such as creating an account or initial setup. In some cases, this integration could generate cost by usage.
