Issues with AzureRmWebAppDeploment v230

We deploy from Azure DevOps YAML pipelines to Azure App Services. We use msdeploy packages for this. In calendar week 45 of 2023, we discovered issues in our deployment pipeline. The pipeline started failing unexpectedly in various places.

The error message “ERROR_USER_NOT_AUTHORIZED_FOR_DEPLOYMENTPROVIDER” and details “Could not complete an operation with the specified provider (dbDacFx) when connecting using the Web Management Service.” were not very comprehensive for me, especially because it stopped working suddenly from one day to the next.
