About using Microsoft Azure cloud
You can use Cloud 66 to provision and deploy your code to servers in any Azure region.
Generating a management certificate
The Azure management certificate is a certificate used to authenticate an agent, such as Cloud 66, to your Azure account. These certificates are uploaded to Azure and stored at the subscription level.
To generate a management certificate you can use OpenSSL:
- Run the following command in your console:
- Now use the created
azure.pemfile and run the following command:
$ openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 3650 -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout azure.pem -out azure.pem
$ openssl x509 -inform pem -in azure.pem -outform der -out azure.cerYou will need
azure.certo use Cloud 66 with your Azure account.
Using your management certificate
Access Management portal of your Azure account and go to the Settings menu. You will need the Subscription ID which is listed in Subscriptions tab. Select the Management certificate tab and click the Upload button to upload
Now visit your Cloud 66 dashboard and build your first stack. When adding your Azure credentials, you will be asked to input your subscription ID and upload the
azure.pem file you created earlier.
Should you wish to delete your stack on Cloud 66, your servers will not be deleted on your cloud provider unless physical server deletion is turned on.
