Home / Setting up the prerequisites


  • An Azure subscription (free from https://azure.microsoft.com/free). Your live ID should be the owner or co-owner of the subscription. You should have enough credits to be able to create a database and a couple of web apps in the subscription.

  • An Azure DevOps organization (free from https://azure.microsoft.com/services/devops). You should have created this organization with your live id and not your Microsoft account. It does not matter if you created some projects in this organization since we will be creating a new one anyway in this script.
