Uploading Remote_sites.txt to a storage account

To upload Remote_sites.txt to a storage account:
  1. Create a storage account:
    1. In the Azure portal, click Create a resource.
    2. Search for "storage account" and select storage account resource creation. Click Create.
    3. From the Resource group dropdown list, select the desired resource group, or create a new one. The storage account will reside in this location.
    4. In the Storage account name field, enter a unique name. Each storage account requires a unique name as each storage account URL is unique.
    5. (Optional) On the Advanced Tab, configure options to enforce access restrictions on the storage account. You can use any combination of the following options depending on the required security level or type:
      1. (Optional) Deselect Enable blob public access to disable anonymous access to blobs in the storage account.
      2. (Optional) Select Enable infrastructure encryption to enable a second encryption layer when at rest. For details, see Enable infrastructure encryption for double encryption of data.
      3. (Optional) Select Default to Azure Active Directory authorization in the Azure portal. When this property is enabled, the Azure portal authorizes requests to blobs, queues, and tables via RBAC. For details, see Assign an Azure role for access to blob data. When this option is enabled, files may not be visible from the Azure portal GUI. You may need to use Azure Storage Explorer instead.

      These steps are recommended to store files more securely.

    6. (Optional) From the Replication dropdown list, select Locally-redundant storage (LRS).
    7. Leave all other fields unchanged. Click Review + create.
  2. Once Azure completes configuring the storage account, go to the storage account Blobs section. Click + Container. Create a container that allows read access to blobs.
  3. Click the container name, then click Upload.
  4. In the Files field, select the Remote_sites.txt file. Click Upload.
  5. Right-click the file and select Blob properties.
  6. Copy the value in the URL field. This is one of the ARM template parameters.
