Configuring Azure Policies¶
Understand your options for authentication, hosting strategies, and monitoring the results of policies.
The Azure provider for Cloud Custodian can be hosted by Azure Functions or in a containerized environment like ACI or AKS. Both hosting options have periodic and event based execution modes.
For a quick and inexpensive start to running custodian policies, Azure Functions are a good hosting strategy. The Azure Containter Host requires more up-front configuration, but can make running a large number of policies against multiple subscriptions more maintanable.
