Azure Provider Overview
The officially supported Nitric Azure Provider.
The Azure provider is implemented and working, except for Schedules. However, it is in public preview and subject to change. Where possible upgrades will be automated.
Nitric runs Functions (APIs, Schedules and Topic Subscribers) on Azure Container Apps, which is currently in preview in the US East 2 region only.
The Azure provider is supported by the Nitric SDKs and CLI by default. However, credentials for an Azure account will be required when using the deploy command from the CLI.
Azure CLI Installation
Installing the Azure CLI assists with credentials setup. You can install it using these summarized instructions, for more options see the Microsoft docs.
Download & install the latest CLI release.

The Nitric CLI uses the standard Azure credentials to authenticate with Azure. If you've set up local credentials for the Azure CLI or an SDK previously, these settings should work without modification.
If you're setting up your credentials for the first time, simply run azure login command and finish the login via your browser.
