Running Aspose on the Azure Cloud


I was wondering is it possible to run Aspose.Words on the Microsoft Azure Cloud service? Also would it work if we deploy it as part of a web app to an Azure Web Site?

Also if we decide to use your sas online api instead (!/v{version:apiVersion}/words/) does it provide a way to attach a datasource to new or existing word document or is this feature only available on your non sas offering?

Thank you


Thanks for your inquiry.

Yes, you can use Aspose.Words for .NET on Microsoft Azure. Please check following documentation link for the purpose.

Windows Azure Platform(Aspose.Words)

We are looking into your requirement and will update you with our findings soon.

Thank you, have you been able to confirm if this is possible?


Thanks for your patience. I am afraid currently Aspose.Words for Cloud does not support to embed datasource in Word file. However, I have logged a ticket WORDSCLOUD-246 in our issue tracking system for further investigation and implementation of the feature. We will keep you updated about the issue resolution progress within this forum thread.
