The account -SAS is a Signature, that enables the client to access resources in one or more of the storage services. Everything you can do with service SAS you can do with account SAS as well. So basically the account SAS is used for delegating access to a group of services
A stored acess policy gives you more fine tunes control over service SAS on the server side. The stored acess policy (SAP) can be used to group shared access signatures and to provide additional restrictions for signatures that are bound by that policy. You can use SAP on Blob containesr, File Shares, Qoues, and Tables.
In this tutorial we will checkout how to get the Microsoft Azure Plugin and how to use it.
First of all, start your IDE and hit Shift two times in quick succession and enter “plugin” to get quickly to the plugin instal menu.
Then just type Azure and install the fisrt plugin suggested, which is developed by microsoft.
After having installed and having created an account on the Azure website, you can login to your account through intelij.
Select the tools tab in the top toolbar and login into azure, using interactive mode and just type in your credentials you just used for making your Azure account.
Prepearing the Ressource groups
I was following this great tutorial from Microsoft, but I and probably a lot of other people encountered an error, when trying to launch a web app right after having created a new account in Azure.
Before you can launch anything in Azure, you need Ressoure groups. Even though the tutorial from Microsoft does not state it explicitly, you should really create an Ressource group, before attempting this.
Enter a name for the App and the resource Group, click Create New
After having created the group, we are finally ready to deploy our app with Intelij!
Start a new project and select a web app in Maven and make sure you are creating the project from archtype!
Then just go to the root folder of your project and right click it in Intelij. You should now see the Azure options, which let you deploy your web app to the cloud!
If you did not login to Azure before, do it now.
Then you have to option to use an existing Web App or a new one. We want a new one, but we will use an existing resource group! For some reason, creating a resource group with intelij plugin, seems to result in exceptions. The only way to avoid those so far, is to create the group manualy in azure and then use that one for further deployment
After hitting run and waiting a few seconds, your console should update with an URL to your freshly deployed web app.
Thanks for reading and have fun in the cloud!
