Generate Azure Documentation with dependency graphs

Today we are adding a first release of dependency graphs in CloudocKit.

With this new feature, you can now create diagrams that will show the dependencies found between your Azure Web Applications and Azure SQL Databases.

As an example, CloudocKit can now generate the following diagram:

In this example, we can see that the Web Application named UManage is using two SQL Servers named umanageservice and nal8jdvson.

In addition to that, we can also see which database is used in each server:

  • The database named umanageservicetest_db located in the umanageservice SQL Server is used by the Web Application
  • The databases named datafactory, umanageapi_db and Netlogon located in the nal8jdvson SQL Server are used by the Web Application

This has many use cases like checking if an Azure SQL Database is used before deleting it.

In order to generate this diagram, we are using the built-in Connection Strings feature in the Web Application:

Stay tune for the next updates as we want to provide more advanced features regarding dependencies within you Azure environment.
