Hello and welcome back to Cy Berries. Microsoft Azure Administrator A Z 103 course. I'm your instructor, Will Carlson. And this is Episode eight Quotas and tagging.
Today's episode is pretty straightforward. We're gonna talk about quotas and limits and some potential gotchas that surround those. And we're also gonna talk about tagging resource is and how that can really help you organize things in your azure environment.
We're gonna jump right into portal to get started.
And I want to call your attention to the fact that quotas are going to be subscription level
based on the region. So make that make a little more sense. We're gonna see our quotas by coming in here to subscriptions and selecting one minutes like this free trial subscription
and go to usage and quotas.
So that's how they're subscription level. We're going to select all providers here,
Azure is going to show me just the items that I have usage with
this is going to be on Lee in the regions that I'm using them in. So this is at this subscription level for each of these regions. Here is the quota, for example, total regional BCP use in the south central US region. On my free trial subscription, I can only have four.
That's not very many. Now this is the free trial subscription. My pay as you go subscription is goingto have different number here for the same quota.
I also may seem different numbers for these quotas in different regions.
Now, if this is not enough, I can request an increase.
The trick here is that requesting an increase is not an automated process that's actually going to fire off a support request to Microsoft, and it may take a little bit of time for them to get back with you. So to potential Gotsch is here.
I know that there are quotas based on your region and subscription. Good idea. Have them in mind before you go deploying solutions, particularly for your company or for a client.
Because if you run up against that quota, it's not going to be an immediate process to get an increase.
And that's the concept of usage and quotes.
I want to move on now and talk about tags as a way to keep things organized here and azure, and to do so, we're gonna click through to a resource group.
I'm gonna go ahead and select the security resource group that I have
and click on tags
Tags were going to be named value pairs. You can set these to be whatever you want. There are some limitations on the length of the name and the length of the value, but those air relatively large to the point that you probably will never experience the limits of those You can find more out about that. In the Microsoft documentation, I encourage you to go check it out.
You can only have 15 tags for resource, and tags are not supported by all. Resource is
tags can also be applied by policy to help you maintain governance within your environment as well. So attacks are very powerful and useful for
tracking, searching and organizing all of your resources. So to apply our tag, all I have to do is come in here and start typing. These tanks can be whatever you want.
I've already created some tags on other Resource is here, and azure is nice enough to pull them in for me, for consistency sake, and so I don't have to retyped them.
Three of these are gonna be comin. Tags you see in the Microsoft documentation has recommended, but again, they're not required. And those air gonna be cost center environment and resource owner
costing her. You can use his away simply to determine who ultimately is paying for that resource. We're going to say this is development
environment is gonna be one Think development test production were going to say this is testing
and then resource owner is going to be who owns that particular resource? I'm gonna go ahead and put me and then we're gonna go and create a new tag is call it test test.
That's all there is to it. I save these tags and these tags are applied to this resource group.
Now, one thing that's important to know about tags is they do not inherit. So we're at the resource group level right now, which is a step up in the hierarchy from a resource. All of these tags that I applied on this security resource group do not apply down two Children. Resource is
of this resource group.
It's very important to know tags do not inherit.
So to prove that out real quickly, we're gonna come in here to the resource group IittIe Resource Group. And see, this resource group has a tag cost center of development.
Now, let's go down into
a resource here in this resource group, a storage account, and look at its tags.
It has an environment tag of production. So again, tags do not inherit down.
But what can you do with tags? Well, to prove that out real quickly, we're gonna come here to all service is and we're gonna look for tags, not templates. That was another video.
And this is going to show me all of the tags in my azure environment. One thing I want to call your attention to
a lot of
azure is meant to be a single pane of glass so I can see all of the tags in this as your tenant. But keep in mind that tags are ultimately at the subscription level. So if I un select all and say, I only want to see my pay as you go tags,
I have no tags in that particular subscription.
I have tags in the free trial subscription.
I can't select all, and I ultimately would see all the tags and all of those subscriptions. So keep in mind as yours really good about single pane of glass, allowing you to see everything in one spot even though they don't ultimately live in that particular spot.
So I can see all the name value players so costing her development of marketing. I could click on any of these and see all the resource is that have those particular tags applied
in today's video? We talked about quotas and limits, and some of the gotcha is there really? It's just a be aware factor there. We talked about requesting an increase for your quotas and the fact that could take a little bit of time and you should plan accordingly.
And we also talked briefly about tags, how they're used and what some of the potential gotchas were hang ups about. Tags are
coming up in the next episode. We're gonna talk about the concept of policy and how that helps us control what can be done and what cannot be done within our Anisha environment.
Thanks for joining me for this episode. I look forward to the next one
