While working on the demos for a resent presentation I wanted to research some steps on how to prepare an Azure database for Sharepoint Online BCS connection with SharePoint Online. I found that there was no complete answer in one place so decided to make one… hence this post. This post assumes you already have an Azure account and necessary rights to configure it. It also assumes you do not have any DB’s in your Azure environment. Also note, adding Azure DBs to your environment is not a free service and you will have costs added to your monthly invoice.
