Review your Terraform file for Azure best practices

Shisho Cloud, our free checker to make sure your Terraform configuration follows best practices, is available (beta).

Manages a Queue within an Azure Storage Account.

Tips: Best Practices for The Other Azure Storage Resources

In addition to the azurerm_storage_account, Azure Storage has the other resources that should be configured for security reasons. Please check some examples of those resources and precautions.



Ensure to use HTTPS connections

It is better to use HTTPS instead of HTTP, which could be vulnerable to person-in-the-middle attacks.



Ensure to allow Trusted Microsoft Services to bypass

It is better to allow Trusted Microsoft Services to bypass. They are not able to access storage account unless rules are set to allow them explicitly.

Review your Azure Storage settings

In addition to the above, there are other security points you should be aware of making sure that your .tf files are protected in Shisho Cloud.

Azure Resource Manager Example

Azure Resource Manager code does not have the related resource.
