Allowing Access to VM Images

The Cloudera Director Azure plugin deploys Azure VM images programmatically. In order to allow programmatic deployment of VM images on Azure, the user must accept a term of usage and grant their Azure subscription permission to deploy the VM images. Detailed steps for allowing programmatic deployment of Azure VM images are available at Working with Marketplace Images on Azure Resource Manager.

By default the Cloudera Director Azure plugin uses the Cloudera-certified CentOS 6 image. Follow the instructions from the above link to allow programmatic deployment of the cloudera-centos-6 image.
