Perform operations on an Azure VM - PREVIEW ONLY

To perform operations on a resource, Azure Resource Manager must be activated, at least one customer with resources in Azure must be onboarded, and the resource must display on the resources list. For information, see Onboard CSP customers - PREVIEW ONLY.

Using Azure Resource Manager, you can perform basic operations on a resource without the need to go to Azure. For example, for an Azure virtual machine you can perform basic operations such as Start, Restart, Deallocate, and Stop.

To perform operations on a resource:

Only Azure Virtual machines support performing operations.

  1. In the left-hand navigation menu, click Views > Cloud Inventory

    The Resources tab displays with a list of the resources for all your onboarded customers.

  2. Select a resource name to view its environment and dependencies

    An overview displays with the resource details and the list of supported operations for the resource.

    Example: Virtual machine overview

  3. Select the operation
  4. When prompted, review and confirm your request

    A notification displays to indicate the operation is started, and a record of the operation is added to the audit log.

    When the operations finishes, a notification displays to indicate, Operation Complete.
