What is an Azure ARM Template?

By 0 , , , Permalink 1

Azure Resource Manager (ARM) template is a declaration of resources that make up a deployment in Azure, the template is text file with a JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) format, since they are just text-json files, you can create and edit those in any of your existing developer tools (i.e. Eclipse, Visual Studio etc.) or any text editor, my favorite editor for authoring ARM templates is Visual Studio Code

Some of the main benefits for using ARM templates are:

  • Repeatable deployments and consistent state
  • Incremental deployments
  • Simple orchestration
  • Specify resources and dependencies
