Use CLI to create a single Azure SQL database and configure a firewall rule
This Azure CLI script example creates an Azure SQL database and configure a server-level firewall rule. Once the script has been successfully run, the SQL Database can be accessed from all Azure services and the configured IP address.
Open Azure Cloud Shell
Azure Cloud Shell is a free, interactive shell that you can use to run the steps in this article. Common Azure tools are preinstalled and configured in Cloud Shell for you to use with your account. Just select the Copy button to copy the code, paste it in Cloud Shell, and then press Enter to run it. There are a few ways to open Cloud Shell:
|Select Try It in the upper-right corner of a code block.|
|Open Cloud Shell in your browser.|
|Select the Cloud Shell button on the menu in the upper-right corner of the Azure portal.|
If you choose to install and use the CLI locally, this topic requires that you are running the Azure CLI version 2.0 or later. Run
az --version to find the version. If you need to install or upgrade, see Install the Azure CLI.
