Creating a container in Azure

After you create a storage account in Azure, you need to create a container in Azure.

Before you create a container, take note of the location property for the storage account at the top of the page in the Storage Account overview section. You will use this later as the storageRegion value when you configure archiving using the CDP CLI.
  1. Navigate to your newly created storage account resource and click the Containers button:
  2. In the next screen, click the + Container button, then enter a name for the container and the default Private access level.
    You will use the container name when you create a new service principal in Azure.
  3. Obtain the URL for the newly created container.
    To retrieve the URL, open the container and click the Properties link in the left navigation bar under Settings. Copy the URL shown. You will need this value when you configure the archiving with the CDP CLI as the value for storageLocationURL.
