Getting started with Azure Policy
Recently as part of a data classification implementation certain aspects were implemented using Azure Policy, since is supports auditing of existing resources and can prevent non-compliant resources from being created in the first instance. Like most things, the documentation reads well and the samples seem useful, until one has to do something different and go off-piste. There are plenty of VM and tagging samples though not so many for Azure SQL Database. Therefore as Sabin is a data engineering consultancy, all examples given here will be Azure SQL Database focused and not the canonical VM as found in many examples.
