An Azure Storage Account is required to store some of the key values that are used in the operation of the AppManager.
NOTE: This section is being provided for reference only. Microsoft updates their Azure interface regularly so the images and instructions may not be the most current. For issues, please consult Microsoft Documentation.
We recommend that your qualified Azure support resource perform these actions.
The following are the steps to create the Azure Storage Account to enable the Azure Table storage for some of the supporting configuration files for AppManager.
- Access Azure and navigate to “More Services” using the left panel link
- Scroll down to the Storage Section in the popup menu and select “Storage Accounts”
- In the Storage Account, click on “+Add”

- Virtual networks (Preview): Disabled

It can take a few minutes for the storage account to be created. Once it appears in the list, click on the entry and navigate to the “Access Keys”. Copy one of the Connection String values and save it to be used in the next step.
