Download your deployed application from Azure

Need to download the web application and files you deployed into Azure? Bring up the Azure portal. I’m using the “new” version (it’s been out for years now, but I still consider it the new one). Then, select your application to bring up the properties. From the list of actions, select “Get publish profile”:

Azure publish settings

Azure publish settings

Open the publish profile file and you’ll see all kinds of wonderful XML. There are a couple of <publishprofile> elements inside. Look for one that defines the FTP publishing information, like this:

<publishProfile profileName=”MyApp – FTP”

Find the userName and userPWD settings under the FTP profile section – they are located right after the “ftpPassiveMode” setting is declared. Just plug in your username and password into your favorite FTP client, and away you go!
