[Linux] Give Linux web apps same deployment options as Windows based apps

Linux based web apps have 3 deployment options (GitHub, BitBucket, Local Git repo) whereas Windows based apps have 7 deployment options (including the "External Repository" which is what I was looking for).

This request is to bring the options for Linux based apps up to speed, and perhaps until then, provide documentation and/or UI verbiage as to why there are differences. I spent an hour or two trying to hook up GitLab as a deployment option (including trying to use the Azure CLI) in vein.

BTW the CLI gives a cryptic error message when trying to add an external repository. See my StackOverflow post here:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/46245144/deployment-from-azure-web-site-from-gitlab

Perhaps a better error message from the CLI would have tipped me to the fact that this is not possible for my Linux based web app.

Thanks

        Any update here?
        As of today, April 2018, the external repository option has not been added as a deployment option.
        Thank you,

        I see that the new Linux-based web apps currently in preview support GitHub and local Git for deployment sources, would be wonderful if support was added for Bitbucket as well.
