Overview

Microsoft Azure is a collection of integrated services that are accessible from the cloud. The Azure Integration mergeable application (mApp) allows technicians to easily fulfill requests for Azure virtual machines (VMs) using the Service Request Model. When the mApp is applied, customers can easily request a new Azure VM from the Service Catalog and then initiate second day actions for the VM (e.g., restart, power off, deallocate) directly from the Customer Portal. After the request is submitted, a technician can reference it using the Service Request record.

When a VM is requested, an Automation Process initiates a One-Step to send a request to Azure using the customer's credentials and specifications. If the request is successful, the One-Step e-mails the customer, updates the Service Request record by creating a Journal entry, and creates a new Virtual Machine CI for the VM. If the request to Azure is unsuccessful, the One-Step sends an e-mail to the customer and updates the Service Request record by creating a Journal entry that includes an error message.
