Creating a Cluster on Azure
Also available as:


You can define tags that will be applied to your cluster-related resources (such as VMs) on your cloud provider account.

The tags added during cluster creation are displayed in your cloud account on the resources that Cloudbreak provisioned for your clusters. You can use tags to categorize your cloud resources by purpose, owner, and so on. Tags come in especially handy when you are using a corporate AWS account and you want to quickly identify which resources belong to your cluster(s). In fact, your corporate cloud account admin may require you to tag all the resources that you create, in particular resources, such as VMs, which incur charges.

By default, the following tags are created:

Tag Description
cb-version Cloudbreak version
Owner Your Cloudbreak admin email.
cb-account-name Your automatically generated Cloudbreak account name stored in the identity server.
cb-user-name Your Cloudbreak admin email.
You can optionally add additional tags. To add custom tags:
  1. In create cluster wizard, click on Advanced.
  2. Navigate to the General Configuration page.
  3. Specify your tags in the Tags section by providing a key and value for each tag.

It is not possible to add tags via Cloudbreak after your cluster has been created. In this case, you can only add the tags manually via your cloud provider's interface.

To learn more about tags and their restrictions, refer to your cloud provider documentation.
