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.

Launch Azure Cloud Shell
The Azure Cloud Shell is a free Bash shell that you can run directly within the Azure portal. It has the Azure CLI preinstalled and configured to use with your account. Click the Cloud Shell button on the menu in the upper-right of the Azure portal.
The button launches an interactive shell that you can use to run the steps in this topic:
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 Azure CLI 2.0.
