Remember, there are always more options in the Azure Infrastructure section under Custom Installation and Additional Infrastructure Tools , but this will get you up and running in the most common scenario.

If not already done, refer to Get Started section of the documentation for:

Azure Prerequisites

  1. Sign in to Azure:

    az login
        "cloudName": "AzureCloud",
        "homeTenantId": "a1234567-b132-1234-1a11-1234a5678b90",
        "id": "b1234567-abcd-11a1-a0a0-1234a5678b90",
        "isDefault": true,
        "managedByTenants": [],
        "name": "D2iQ Developer Subscription",
        "state": "Enabled",
        "tenantId": "a1234567-b132-1234-1a11-1234a5678b90",
        "user": {
          "name": "",
          "type": "user"
  2. Create an Azure Service Principal (SP) by running the following commands:

    1. If you have more than one Azure account, run this command to identify your account:

      echo $(az account show --query id -o tsv)
    2. Run this command to ensure you are pointing to the correct Azure subscription ID:

      az account set --subscription "D2iQ Developer Subscription"
    3. If an SP with the name exists, this command rotates the password.

      az ad sp create-for-rbac --role contributor --name "$(whoami)-konvoy" --scopes=/subscriptions/$(az account show --query id -o tsv) --query "{ client_id: appId, client_secret: password, tenant_id: tenant }"
        "client_id": "7654321a-1a23-567b-b789-0987b6543a21",
        "client_secret": "Z79yVstq_E.R0R7RUUck718vEHSuyhAB0C",
        "tenant_id": "a1234567-b132-1234-1a11-1234a5678b90"
  3. Set the AZURE_CLIENT_SECRET environment variable:

    export AZURE_CLIENT_SECRET="<azure_client_secret>" # Z79yVstq_E.R0R7RUUck718vEHSuyhAB0C
    export AZURE_CLIENT_ID="<client_id>"               # 7654321a-1a23-567b-b789-0987b6543a21
    export AZURE_TENANT_ID="<tenant_id>"               # a1234567-b132-1234-1a11-1234a5678b90
    export AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID="<subscription_id>"   # b1234567-abcd-11a1-a0a0-1234a5678b90
