Deploy a GitHub Quickstart ARM Template using the Azure Portal

Azure Resource Manager (ARM) templates provide a powerful way in which to define Azure resources and configuration, by essentially using a text file. This helps with the consistency and automation of resource deployments. In this hands-on lab, you will learn how to locate and leverage one of Microsoft's public quickstart ARM Templates. **Scenario** To help you walk through the lab, consider the following scenario: You work as a cloud administrator for a company that has recently migrated to Azure with the help of a third-party consultancy. You're just beginning to use infrastructure-as-code, and need to build an ARM template for a storage account. You're not sure where to start, so the third-party consultancy recommended using Microsoft's quickstart templates to get up and running. You need to create a General-purpose V2 Storage Account with multiple blob containers. Premium storage is required, with LRS replication configured.

  2. Challenge

    Edit and Deploy a QuickStart ARM Template

    1. Edit the quickstart template in the Azure Portal to meet the requirements of the scenario (General-purpose v2 Storage, Premium Storage, LRS).
    2. Deploy the quickstart template to Central US using the existing Subscription and Resource Group.

    Note: There are several ways to deploy a template, as shown below:

    • Use Deploy to Azure from the GitHub page
    • Use Deploy to Azure from the Microsoft Templates page
    • Manually select the template from the dropdown list within the ARM Resource settings page Template deployment > Deploy a Custom Template in the Marketplace within the Azure Portal. The teamplate is now named: storage-multi-blob-container

    Note: The Microsoft ARM Template reference for Storage Accounts provides detailed information on how to define a Storage Account within an ARM template.
