Where is the DB located on Azure portal upon FHIR API creation?

Hi,

I am trying to get my hands on with FHIR and I just hosted an API with Azure FHIR and posted the demo patient data.
I was able to successfully post and get the data. Out of curiosity, i wanted to explore the portal to see the DB instance it is storing the data in, however, I was unable to see any DB instance. Is it the abstraction of data layer, that I am unable to see the DB instance?

Your answers will be highly appreciated.
Thanks.

@PiyushNariani-7530 Thank you for your interest in Azure API for FHIR.

The Cosmos DB instance is not visible on the portal.
It is provisioned behind the scenes and is managed by Azure to avoid any management overhead to the customer.

Some customers have asked us for the ability to connect to the DB and query the data.
This feature is currently under consideration.
