The resource group will contain information about Azure resources like virtual machines, storage accounts, web apps, databases, and virtual networks.
- Sign in to Azure Portal.
- Click Resource groups in the side navigation pane.
- Click +Create.
- Select the name of the Azure subscription in which you want to create the resource group.
- Enter a unique name for the resource group.
This can include alphanumeric characters, underscores, parentheses, hyphens, and periods – with the exception that a resource group name can’t end with a period.
Note: Resource group names are case insensitive. Some APIs will return a resource group name in a different case. For example, Azure Portal will not accept Resource_Group_1 as a name if resource_group_1 already exists.
Azure Portal will check that the name is unique for the selected Azure subscription.
- Select a region for the resource group.
This won’t limit the regions in which you can run the resources themselves; it just affects the location of the metadata.
- Click Review + create.
- Click Create.
