Hi Benethor, and sorry for the late response (I never got the email from dev.to, I guess it want to my spam box). In this article I don't do it in the release pipeline: it's all automated by Azure App Service, so there's really nothing to do.
However, I do also run VMs where I need to handle that certificate myself: in that case, the easiest thing I found is to use Apache with the Let's Encrypt script. It's all done automatically and renewed with a CRON job, so it should work without much maintenance. I only remember that one time I had to upgrade the script manually because they had a major release. So that's a bit more work & maintenance, but that's still easy to set up.
