Variables and where to find them

Many parameters are used in LiveData Platform for Azure. They can be found on your Azure portal, or see the Microsoft docs for how to find details via the API.

  • --resource-group <resource_group> -g <resource_group>

    • Your Azure resource group, e.g. QA-wandisco1.
    • This will always refer to the resource group that your LiveData Platform resource group resides in.
  • --location <azure_region> -l <azure_region>

    • The Azure region of your LiveData Platform resource group, e.g. westus. Currently supported regions are East US, West US, West US 2, West Central US, West Europe, North Europe, East Asia and Southeast Asia.
  • --storage-account-id <storage_id>

    • Your Azure storage account resource ID e.g. /subscriptions/EXAMPLE-SUBSCRIPTION-ID-1/resourceGroups/QA-wandisco1/providers/Microsoft.Storage/storageAccounts/demogen2.

    • The following command in Azure CLI will return the id:

      az resource list --resource-group <resource_group> --resource-type "Microsoft.Storage/storageAccounts"

  • --storage-container <container_name>

    • The name of your Azure storage container e.g. democontainer.
  • --storage-managed-identity <managed_identity_ID>

    • The managed identity to use for your storage account e.g. /subscriptions/EXAMPLE-SUBSCRIPTION-ID-1/resourcegroups/GRP-user.name1/providers/Microsoft.ManagedIdentity/userAssignedIdentities/myuserid.

    • The following command in Azure CLI will return the <managed_identity_ID> as id:

      az identity list --resource-group <resource_group>

  • --storage-access-key <storage_key>

    • The access key for your storage account.

    • The following command in Azure CLI will return this as key1:

      az storage account keys list --resource-group <resource_group> --account-name <storage_account_name>
