Azure Container Apps is an Azure service that allows you to deploy and manage containers without having to manage the underlying infrastructure. While using the Container Apps service, it's important to understand the importance of securing the communication of the application instance so that you are not exposing it to the internet without a proper communication mechanism.

This lab challenge assumes familiarity with the following concepts:

  • Understanding of Azure Container Apps
  • Understanding of Azure Container Apps Networking
  • Provisioning of Azure Application Gateway and Private Link configurations
  • Understanding Azure Private DNS Service

If you are unfamiliar with any of the above, Cloud Academy recommends completing the labs mentioned in the prerequisites before attempting this lab challenge.

This hands-on lab challenge will test your practical ability to interact with Azure Automation to satisfy a set of requirements in a production-like Azure environment. You will be presented with a task and set of requirements you must fulfill to pass the challenge.

This is a real environment, which means you can prove your knowledge in an applied way, substituting multiple choice questions for a dynamic performance-based exam situation.
