The Marketplace is a collection of items customized for Azure Stack, like services, applications, and resources. It's the place where tenants come to create new resources and deploy new applications. Service administrators can add custom items to the Marketplace and tenants will see them right away.
To open the Marketplace, click New.
The Marketplace is updated every five minutes.
Every Marketplace item has:
- An Azure Resource Manager template for resource provisioning
- Metadata, like strings, icons, and other marketing collateral
- Formatting information to display the item in the portal
Every item published to the Marketplace uses a format called the Azure Gallery Package (azpkg). Deployment or runtime resources (like code, zip files with software, or virtual machine images) should be added to Azure Stack separately, not as part of the Marketplace Item.
