Description

Azure Resource Manager (ARM) is a deployment and management service for Azure that allows you to manage resources using declarative JSON templates rather than scripts. With Azure Resource Manager, you have the ability to customize resource deployment using parameters, access controls, tags and more to tailor a template toward any scenario you need to. Additionally, you have the ability to use one of dozens of built-in functions to greatly increase the customization and automation of your deployments.

In this lab, you will first create a Windows virtual machine using an Azure Resource Manager template. Then, you will improve the template using several additional ARM features.
