In this quickstart, you learned how to configure a firewall for your server. Now that you have server, and secured it with a firewall, you can add a basic sample data model to it from the portal. Having a sample model is helpful to learn about configuring model database roles and testing client connections. To learn more, continue to the tutorial for adding a sample model.
