  2. To connect with Azure account following parameter are required: subcriptionID, ApplicationID, TenantID, Secret Key, Database Name

Note: Any Azure App (with its name & ID) having minimum role as 'Read Only'.

    3. SQL Server Database Name for which metrics has to be calculated.

    4. Time interval for which data has to be fetched (in hours).

    5. PowerShell version 5.0 or later.

Credentials:

  1. Login credential to access Azure Portal. This has to be passed as script arguments per prerequisites 2 above. e.g. <subscriptionID>, <TenantID>, <ApplicationID>, value=<Secret Key>, <SQL Server Database Name>, value=<Time Interval>

Windows Administrator on the machine where template would be running against.
