Efficient Resource Mapping with Azure Resource Visualizer

Overview

In a scenario where you’re pressed for time and require an immediate diagram of your environment, wouldn’t it be convenient if there was a method to simply select your resources and automatically generate a comprehensive diagram?

  1. Sign in to the Azure Portal.
  2. In the Search box, search for Resource group and choose Resource group from the result.
