Azure Resource Manager (ARM) templateedit

The Azure Resource Manager (ARM) template is a declarative solution template that targets the Azure Resource Manager (ARM) API, to deploy a collection of Azure resources necessary to run an Elasticsearch cluster on Azure. The ARM API is Microsoft’s infrastructure-as-code offering to provide infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) on the Azure platform, with a consistent API for managing resources.

An ARM template deploys the resources together in a single unit of work, either as an incremental deployment, which is useful when targeting an existing resource group, or as a full deployment, which will replace all resources within a resource group.
