Finding the required cloud credentials for Azure

For Azure as Your Cloud Service Provider

If you've selected Azure as your cloud service provider, you'll require the following credentials: Azure Subscription ID, Azure Tenant ID, Azure Client ID, and Azure Client Secret.

To obtain these credentials, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Create an Azure Account

If you don't already have an Azure account, create one by following the instructions provided on the Azure website.

Step 2: Install Azure CLI

If you already have an Azure account, proceed to install Azure CLI on your local system. You can look into steps to install azure CLI for further information.

Step 3: Authenticate Azure CLI

Run Azure CLI in your terminal and authenticate the CLI by using the command

az login

Step 4: Copy Azure Subscription ID

Navigate to your Azure dashboard and copy the subscription ID.

A user can navigate to the subscriptions tab as highlighted and access their subscription ID.

Step 5: Set Subscription ID

Run the following command in your terminal, replacing "SUBSCRIPTION_ID" with your actual subscription ID:

az account set --subscription="SUBSCRIPTION_ID"

Step 6: Create New Service Principal

Create a new service principal with 'Contributor' role using the following command, again replacing "SUBSCRIPTION_ID" with your actual subscription ID:

az ad sp create-for-rbac --role="Contributor" \

Step 7: Collect Your Credentials

The command executed in step 6 will return several values including appId, displayName, password, and tenant.

In this context, appId is your Azure "Client ID", tenant is your Azure "Tenant ID", and password is your Azure "Client Secret".

Please be sure to save these values safely as they will be needed to create an instance in Neverinstall.
