Creating an Azure Account

An Azure Account in Octopus Deploy contains the details of your Azure subscription.  It is used to authenticate with Azure when deploying or executing scripts.

To create an Azure Account, navigate to Infrastructure ➜ Accounts and click Add Account in the Azure Subscriptions section.


Authentication Method

Octopus Deploy authenticates with Azure in one of two methods: using a Management Certificate or a Service Principal.
