Install on Azure

On this page

This tutorial shows how to create a basic deployment of the Curity Identity Server to run on Azure using the Azure Resource Manager (ARM) template. For more in-depth instructions how to deploy the Curity Identity Server on Azure, please read Azure Deployment Overview.

Deploy the ARM template.

The ARM template is hosted on Curity's GitHub account. You can deploy it simply by clicking the button below.

Deploy to Azure

The template will set up an Azure Container Instance (ACI) with the Curity Identity Server image. It will be exposed to the Internet.

If you want to modify the template or for other reasons prefer the Azure CLI, check out the instructions available in the template's documentation on GitHub.


Once you have clicked the Deploy button, you are redirected to Azure to enter some settings before you can do the actual deployment.

  • First you have to select in which Subscription and Resource group you want to deploy in. Then you have some parameters for the application.
  • Depending on your Region and DNS Label you will get a different DNS name of your deployment.
  • The Password is the password you will use later on when logging in to the Admin UI.
  • The Name parameter is which name the ACI will have.

Click on Review + create and then Create after accepting the terms.

Getting the Admin URL

When the deployment is done, click on the Outputs to see the URLs to the services. Navigate to the Admin URL to see that it responds. If it doesn't try again a little later. It usually takes about a minute for the service to be up and running.

Certificate Warning

The Curity Identity Server generates a self-signed server certificate during installation. This certificate is not trusted by your browser. You will have to make an exception in order to access the service for the first time. You can change the certificate later on.

Next Steps

Now the Curity Identity Server is up and running but without any configuration. The next step is to set up the basic profiles and services. Move on to the First Configuration Tutorial.
