Resource groups

CDP can provision all the environment and cluster resources into your existing resource group or you can also have CDP create multiple new resource groups.

CDP supports two resource group related scenarios:

Option Description Permissions Termination
Provide a single existing resource group Provide a single existing resource group during environment creation and all CDP resources will be provisioned into that single resource group. No other resource groups will be created by CDP. The scope of permissions in the role definition provided for CDP should be only the existing resource group where you would like CDP to create resources. The resource group will not be deleted when your environment is terminated.

The VHDs copied into your resource group during environment creation will not be deleted during environment termination. CDP preserves them to speed up subsequent environment deployments.

CDP creates multiple resource groups CDP can create multiple resource groups. For the list of all the resource groups created, refer to Azure resources used by CDP The scope of permissions in the role definition provided for CDP should be the whole subscription. The resource groups will be deleted when your environment is terminated, except for the cloudbreak-images resource group (which stores VHDs for VM deployment).

If you would like to provide your own resource group, you can create it using the following instructions:
