Azure quick start

In case you hadn’t noticed, I love built in help. DBCC HELP, the script button in SSMS, even BOL. Well here’s another one.


Throughout the Azure portal you will find buttons called Quick Start. You won’t find it everywhere but I’ve found it in the Resource Groups blade, the Azure Active Directory blade, the SQL Server blade (the layer above an Azure SQL Database), and the SQL Database blade. FYI each time I found this option it was the first entry under settings

So what is it? It has links to information to help you get started.


In the case of SQL Server, we have links for various tools used to work with SQL Server, links with information on how to connect SQL Server to your app, and of course additional documentation (pricing and tutorials for example). You can see how this stuff can be really helpful. So if you see a Quick Start option it can’t hurt to take a look.

My name is Kenneth Fisher and I am Senior DBA for a large (multi-national) insurance company. I have been working with databases for over 20 years starting with Clarion and Foxpro. I’ve been working with SQL Server for 12 years but have only really started “studying” the subject for the last 3. I don’t have any real "specialities" but I enjoy trouble shooting and teaching. Thus far I’ve earned by MCITP Database Administrator 2008, MCTS Database Administrator 2005, and MCTS Database Developer 2008. I’m currently studying for my MCITP Database Developer 2008 and should start in on the 2012 exams next year. My blog is at www.sqlstudies.com.
