How to update an Azure Stack Hub resource provider

Important

Before continuing, be sure to review the resource provider's latest release notes to learn about new functionality, fixes, and any known issues that could affect your deployment. The release notes may also specify the minimum Azure Stack Hub version required for the resource provider. If you've never installed the resource provider previously, refer to the resource provider's prerequisites and initial install instructions instead.

Resource providers installed from Marketplace will require regular servicing. Servicing is done by applying service updates, provided by Microsoft on a regular basis. Updates can include both new features and fixes.

Check for updates

Resource providers are updated using the same update feature that is used to apply Azure Stack Hub updates.

  1. Sign in to the Azure Stack Hub administrator portal.

  2. Select the All services link on the left, then under the Administration section select Updates. All services page

  3. On the Updates page, you find updates for the resource providers, under the Resource Provider section.
