Deploy to Azure


This template deploys a Microsoft Purview account using an Azure Resource Manager (ARM) template.

For more information about Microsoft Purview, see our overview page. For more information about deploying Microsoft Purview across your organization, see our deployment best practices.


  • If you don't have an Azure subscription, create a free subscription before you begin.

  • An Azure Active Directory tenant associated with your subscription.

  • The user account that you use to sign in to Azure must be a member of the contributor or owner role, or an administrator of the Azure subscription. To view the permissions that you have in the subscription, go to the Azure portal, select your username in the upper-right corner, select the "..." icon for more options, and then select My permissions. If you have access to multiple subscriptions, select the appropriate subscription.

  • No Azure Policies preventing creation of Storage accounts or Event Hub namespaces. Microsoft Purview will deploy a managed Storage account and Event Hub when it is created. If a blocking policy exists and needs to remain in place, please follow our Microsoft Purview exception tag guide and follow the steps to create an exception for Microsoft Purview accounts.
