Create an Internet Analyzer test using Portal (Preview)
There are two ways to create an Internet Analyzer resource- using the Azure portal or using CLI. This section helps you create a new Azure Internet Analyzer resource using our portal experience.
Before you begin
The public preview is available to use globally; however, data storage is limited to US West 2 during preview.
Get Internet Analyzer preview access by following the How do I participate in the preview? instructions from the Azure Internet Analyzer FAQ.
From the home page in the Azure portal, click + Create a resource. Internet Analyzer is currently only available from the preview version of the Azure portal.
On the New page, search for "Internet Analyzer" in the Search the Marketplace field.
Click Internet Analyzer (preview). Make sure the publisher is Microsoft and the category is Networking.
On the Internet Analyzer (preview) page, click Create to open the Create an Internet Analyzer page.
Specify the following configuration settings for your Internet Analyzer resource:
- Subscription: The Azure subscription to host the new Internet Analyzer resource. Use the same Subscription ID used to request preview access.
- Resource Group: The Azure resource group that the new Internet Analyzer resource will be created in. If you don’t have an existing resource group, you can create a new one.
- Name: The name of the new Internet Analyzer resource profile.
- Region: The Azure public region that the resource will be created in. During preview, only US West 2 is available.
When you have finished specifying your profile settings, click Review + create.
Give your test a name in the Test Name box.
Add a description for your test in the Description field.
Click Configure Endpoint - a tab will appear from the right-hand side. Select the type of endpoint you'd like to configure- a single Azure region, multiple Azure regions, or a custom endpoint.
Preconfigured endpoints: single and multiple Azure region combinations
- Select a region or set of regions from a preconfigured list of Azure endpoints.
- Next, select the type of application or content delivery architecture you'd like to evaluate.
- Follow the instructions on the Create Custom Endpoint page.
- Paste the HTTPS URL location of the one-pixel image in the portal.
Click Add to add the endpoint to your test.
Repeat steps 1-4 to configure your second endpoint. Endpoint B is always measured relative to Endpoint A - when configuring endpoints, consider which endpoint should be your test control.
Click the Save button to save your test. Once you save a test, you can no longer edit the endpoints of a particular test.
