Microsoft Azure Resource Groups

An Azure Resource Group is a required grouping for all your Azure VMs. In this lab exercise, we’ll look into what this group structure actually is – and how you can use it for better governance and resource management for your infrastructure. Also, we will see how to protect a resource in the existing Resource group from accidental deletion.


Lab Objectives

Upon completion of this Lab, you will be able to:

  • Log into the Microsoft Azure Portal
  • Understand the resource groups in Azure
  • Create and protect an Azure Resource in an existing Resource Group from accidental deletion


Intended Audience

This lab is intended for:

  • Azure administrators
  • Cloud engineers
  • Anyone with a need to create resource groups and handle them inside the cloud



  • You should be familiar with basic cloud concepts
  • Basic familiarity with the Azure Portal is helpful, but not required
