Azure Account Prerequisites

To create your Kyligence Cloud application, you will need to request an Azure account and a resource group from your cloud platform system administrator. Your account should have a contributor role or higher permissions for the resource group.

Create Resource Group

Navigate to your Resource Groups and create a new resource group by clicking the Add button.

Note that the resource group must be empty to deploy Kyligence Cloud. You may not use a resource group that already contains resources.

Add New Resource Group

 

Name your Resource Group and add Tags. In our example, we named our Resource Group KyligenceCloud.
