Create a plan in Azure Stack

Applies to: Azure Stack integrated systems and Azure Stack Development Kit

Azure Stack plans are groupings of one or more services and their quotas. As a provider, you can create plans to offer to your users. In turn, your users subscribe to your offers to use the plans, services, and quotas they include. This example shows you how to create a plan that includes the compute, network, and storage resource providers. This plan gives subscribers the ability to provision virtual machines.

Create a plan (1902 and later)

  1. Sign in to the Azure Stack administrator portal.

  2. To create a plan and offer that users can subscribe to, select + Create a resource, then Offers + Plans, then Plan.

    Select a plan

  3. A tabbed user interface appears that enables you to specify the plan name, add services, and define quotas for each of the selected services. Most importantly, you can review the details of the offer you create, before you decide to create it.

    Under the Basics tab of the New plan window, enter a Display name and a Resource name. The display name is the plan's friendly name that operators can see. Note that in the administrator portal, plan details are only visible to operators.

    Specify details

  4. Create a new Resource Group, or select an existing one, as a container for the plan.

    Specify the resource group

  5. Select the Services tab, or click the Next : Services > button, and then select the checkbox for Microsoft.Compute, Microsoft.Network, and Microsoft.Storage.

    Select services

  6. Select the Quotas tab, or click the Next : Quotas > button. Next to Microsoft.Storage, choose either the default quota from the dropdown box, or select Create New to create a customized quota.

    Quotas

  7. If you're creating a new quota, enter a Name for the quota, and then specify the quota values. Select OK to create the quota.

    New quota

  8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 to create and assign quotas for Microsoft.Network and Microsoft.Compute. When all three services have quotas assigned, they'll look like the next example.

    Complete quota assignments

  9. Select Review + create to review the plan. Review all values and quotas to ensure they are correct. Note the expansion arrows to the left of each service/quota pair. A new feature enables you to expand the quotas in the selected plans, one at a time, to view the details of each quota in a plan and go back to make any necessary edits.

    Create the plan

  10. When you are ready, select Create to create the plan.

  11. To see the new plan, on the left-hand side click All services, select Plans, and then search for the plan and select its name. If your list of resources is long, use Search to locate your plan by name.
