Step 5: Select Create. Visual Studio deploys the app to your Azure App Service, and the web app loads in your browser with the app name at http://<app_name>.azurewebsites.net (i.e. http://ej2-documenteditor-server20200514102909.azurewebsites.net).

Step 6: Navigate to Document Editor Web API control http://ej2-documenteditor-server20200514102909.azurewebsites.net/api/documenteditor. It returns the default get method response.

Append the app service running the URL http://ej2-documenteditor-server20200514102909.azurewebsites.net/api/documenteditor to the service URL in the client-side Document Editor control. For more information about how to get started with the Document Editor control, refer to this getting started page.
