Azure Classic (Service Management)

Integration with Azure can be set up using the following steps:

  1. Navigate to the Azure console
  2. Click the settings link in the lower left
  3. Copy the subscription ID you would like CloudBolt to use. This will be used when setting up the RH in CloudBolt
  4. Follow the directions from Microsoft for creating a certificate on Linux. This procedure can be followed from the CloudBolt server
  5. Upload the .cer file that was created to the Azure console. This can be done by navigating to settings –> management certificates –> upload
  6. Run mkdir -p /var/opt/cloudbolt/resourcehandlers/azure/
  7. Move the .pem file that was created above to /var/opt/cloudbolt/resourcehandlers/azure/
  8. Make sure the .pem file is accessible by running chmod o+r /var/opt/cloudbolt/resourcehandlers/azure/filename.pem
  9. From the Resource Handlers page in the CloudBolt UI, click the “Add a resource handler” button and enter the relevant information from above, and select which locations you would like CloudBolt to manage

Azure requires a username and password when provisioning a new server. The owner’s CloudBolt username is the default username, but there is no default password. You can allow the user to specify one in the order form by adding the Password parameter to the group or environment, set it on the template, or set a default in the Global Parameter Defaults page of the UI.
