In this Answer, we will learn how to create an Azure SQL database using Azure Portal.

Create an SQL database

  • Login to Azure portal.
  • Search for “SQL database” in the search bar.
  • Select “SQL databases” in the results.
Viewing databases

  • It will open a tab where all your existing databases are present.
  • Click on “+ Create” to create a database.
Adding a new database
  • A form to create a database will open.
  • In the “Basics” tab, select your “Subscription” and “Resource group”.
  • You can also create a new “Resource group.”
Create a new resource group
  • Provide a unique “Database name.”
  • Select an existing “Server” or create a new one.
  • If you want to use an “SQL elastic pool,” so that storage resources are shared between all the databases it contains, you can click on “Yes."
  • Configure the database according to your needs.
Database configurations
  • Select “Backup storage redundancy” according to your needs.
  • You can also change options in the “Networking” and “Security” tabs, if needed. Otherwise, leave them at default settings.
Changing networking options
  • Go to “Additional settings.”
  • Note that once you have provided a setting for “Database collation,” you cannot change it afterward. Here, we have kept the default setting.
  • The “Maintenance window” is where Microsoft provides updates or patches to the database.
Maintenance window
  • You can provide “Tags.”
Adding tags
