Azure Installation Prerequisites

Azure Installation Prerequisites

SLASCONE is a Microsoft Azure application that can be installed and deployed in one of the following ways:

  • Using an own/existing Azure subscription (recommended). This ensures that you are the master of your data, and you can choose in which region your application and data reside.
  • Using a SLASCONE GmbH Azure subscription. Everything is managed by us.

In both cases, you don’t have to worry about the installation updates. Both installation and updates are managed by SLASCONE GmbH.

PREPARING YOUR OWN SUBSCRIPTION

When you choose to use an own/existing Azure subscription, you need to perform the following steps in order for us to be able to install SLASCONE:

RESOURCE GROUP CREATION

A resource group contains the resources required to successfully deploy SLASCONE in Azure. It is a container that holds related resources for an Azure solution. Please create a new resource group called slascone-licensing.

USER CREATION

Create a new user e.g., licensing@yourdomain.com, that has contributor permissions in the resource group slascone-licensing.

This user should be able to send (administrative) emails. You will have to provide us the user’s credentials and the smtp server details.

REGISTRATION OF RESOURCE TYPES

Certain resource types need to be registered in the subscription. Log in to the the Azure portal as a subscription administrator (not as licensing@yourdomain.com) and navigate to your subscription. In the Left menu click on Resource Providers and make sure that the following resources are registered:

  • microsoft.insights
  • microsoft.maps
  • microsoft.keyvault
  • microsoft.sql
  • microsoft.storage
