Azure ARM Template Library

I noticed a new feature in the Azure portal today called “Templates” which allows you store JSON ARM templates in a library for easier deployment and access of your templates.


Creating a new template.

Deploying a saved template

Using RBAC you can control who can edit or just deploy templates. Being able to restrict users to only deploying approved templates has a lot of advantages.

You have to use the “Share” button, which once clicked opens a blade that is exactly the same as a RBAC blade.

Below is what the user sees from there perspective.

One feature I think is currently missing is integration with GitHub or VSO.

  • It’s not clear whether I can use this Template Library to store linked templates… if so, how do I determine the URI of the template? Have you figured this out, yet?
