Before you install an instance of the platform to an Azure cloud, perform the pre-installation steps outlined in this guide.

Install the Azure CLI

Install the Azure CLI (az) by following the instructions in the Azure documentation. When you’re done, run the following command from a command-line shell to verify that the CLI is functioning properly:

az login

This command should open an Azure portal login screen. Log into your Azure account and run the following command to list all the existing resource groups under your account:

az group list

Get Your Subscription ID

The platform installation requires using your Azure subscriptions ID. Your Azure Tenant can contain multiple subscriptions. Run the following command to see the IDs of all the tenant subscriptions.
