Quick update here – with the announcement of the premium plan we do support moving from consumption to a premium plan. Today this may not work for all consumption apps in a region only because some consumption apps may exist in a “webspace” that doesn’t yet have premium turned on. That said we have CLI commands rolling out in the next few weeks to make this seamless.
Moving to app service plan is a bit trickier as the actual code often lives in a different place on an app service plan (app service local storage) than where consumption needs them (azure storage files) – so moving may not work and currently don’t have any immediate plans to do like “code migration” in addition to changing plans.
You can see a sample of moving plans between apps in this sample here as well: https://github.com/Azure-Samples/functions-csharp-premium-scaler
