Configuring Azure Policies

Understand your options for authentication, hosting strategies, and monitoring the results of policies.

Hosting Options

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.
