Hi!

Welcome to the GitHub repository of the internationalcookies application. This app is the demo app for the Pluralsight course Building a Global App With Azure Paas.

You can download a copy and follow along in the course.

You can see the end result running live here: https://www.internationalcookies.eu/

The solution consists of:

  • Website (InternationalCookies)
    • ASP.NET Core 1.01
  • Database project (InternationalCookies.Data)
    • For the database schema and seed script
  • ARM templates
    • For the creation of resources like the Web App, Azure SQL database and Redis cache for each region
      • (InternationalCookies.Deploy-Region)
    • For the creation of the Logic App
      • (InternationalCookies.Deploy-Global)

Getting started

Step 1

Make sure that you have the following:

Step 2

Download a copy of the code and build it.

Step 3

Set up the resources in Azure. This application is something that runs on Azure resources and is meant to show you how Azure can help. Therefore, it depends on some Azure resources:

  1. Azure Web App
  2. Azure SQL Database
  3. Azure Redis Cache
  4. Azure Storage Account
  5. Azure Active Directory
    • Application in Azure Active Directory
  6. (optional) Azure Logic App

You can choose to start with the full website (project InternationalCookies) or with a version of the website without authentication (project InternationalCookiesNoAuth).

The first one requires you to set up everything first, including Azure Active Directory. As setting up Azure Active Directory is the most difficult thing, you can start with the InternationalCookiesNoAuth project to get started easier. You can run the InternationalCookiesNoAuth project with the resources 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4 can be set up by deploying the project InternationalCookies.Deploy.Region.

  • Simply right-click the project and click Deploy...new
    • You need to connect your Azure subscription for this
  • Select or create the resource group that you want to deploy to
  • Click OK
  • Fill out all of the required fields and click Save
  • Click OK again to deploy
  • Disclaimer: resources that you run in Azure can cost you money. You are responsible for these resources!

Instructions for setting up Azure Active Directory can be found in the Pluralsight course in Module 5: Securing the Application and Data.

Step 4

Deploy the database project InternationalCookies.Database to the Azure SQL database that was just deployed. This creates the database schema in the database and fills it with initial cookie stores and cookies. You can do this by doing this:

  • Right-click the project and select Publish
  • Select Edit for the Target database connection section
  • Go to the Browse Tab and select Azure
  • Your database should be listed here. Make sure that you have the right Azure sunbscription selected
  • Select the database
  • Type in the password
  • Click Test connection
    • This might prompt you to add a firewall rule. If it does, add the rule
  • Click OK
  • Click Publish

Step 5

Fill the appsettings.json file in the InternationalCookies or InternationalCookiesNoAuth projects with the values of the the resources that you've just created:

  • "CookieDBConnection": "",
    • The SQL connection to the database. You can find this in the Azure Portal
      • Navigate to your Azure SQL database in the Azure Portal
      • Click Show database connection string
      • Copy the connection string and paste it in appsettings.json
      • Make sure to put in your username and password in the connectionstring
  • "CookieDBConnectionTemplate": "",
    • This one is already in appsettings.json. Put your Azure SQL username and password in here
  • "RedisConnection": "",
    • The connectionstring for Azure Redis Cache. You can find this in the Azure Portal
    • Navigate to your Azure Redis Cache in the Azure Portal
    • Click show access keys
    • Copy the Primary connection string and paste it in appsettings.json
  • "AzureStorageConnection": ""
    • The connectionstring for Azure Storage. You can find the values for it in the Azure Portal
    • This one is already in appsettings.json
    • Navigate to your Azure Storage Account in the Azure Portal
    • Click Access Keys
    • Copy the primary access key and paste it in the AzureStorageConnection where it says youraccountkey
    • In the Azure Portal, you will find the Azure Storage Account name. Copy this and paste it in the AzureStorageConnection where it says youraccountname

Instructions for setting up Azure Active Directory can be found in the Pluralsight course in Module 5: Securing the Application and Data.
