BitBucket Pipeline deploying to Azure Slots

I have managed to get a BitBucket Pipeline building and deploying an Azure Function.

I've since been reading about Azure slots.  Is it possible to target a deployment to a slot?  If it is, is it also possible to perform the slot swap from a pipeline?

This is what we used.

Note that you would need to specify the "SLOT" if you added one in addition to the default production slot. In Azure Deployment Slots, the web app name will be appended with the slot name but only the slot name should be in the YAML config.

For example, if the slot name in Azure Deployment Slot is MyWebApp-<slotName>. Bitbucket Pipeline should look like this:

name: Deploy to Azure        
deployment: staging        
- pipe: atlassian/azure-web-apps-deploy:1.0.0          
ZIP_FILE: 'MyWebApp-$'            
SLOT: 'slotName'

I believe Slot Swapping will be done in Azure (via Azure Portal or Azure CLI) and not within Bitbucket Pipelines.

I noticed in the "advanced" example (from that there was a variable for the deployment slot.  I don't know if that will help, and it doesn't address the question of slot swapping in the pipeline, but maybe it will shed some light on the issue for you.
