Start cleaning up your data now!
We are happy to go online with our Beta Version of HEDDA.IO. If you want to try our Beta Version, you can simply deploy all necessary Azure resources via our ARM template to your subscription.
You can find the complete ARM template in our GitHub repository: https://github.com/oh22is/HEDDA.IO
Deploy from a custom template
The ARM template is used to query various parameters for the HEDDA.IO environment.
To deploy HEDDA.IO to your subscription, first create a new Resource group in a location of your choice, all other resources will be automatically created in the same location. Make sure that the corresponding resources can be created in the selected location for your subscription.
Then enter the additional data for the individual parameters. Please note that the “Sql Password” must be a complex password with at least 12 characters consisting of upper and lower case letters as well as numbers and special characters. If the password complexity is too weak, the deployment will fail.
After that define the SKU for the App Service Plan and the edition for your SQL Server database. In order to achieve a good performance, we recommend the corresponding default settings.
As the last parameters you have to enter the Hedda Io License Id and the Hedda Io Password. You can also make these two entries later using the configuration properties of the Web App.
To obtain the appropriate license information, please contact email@example.com.
After all resources for HEDDA.IO have been created, you have to initialize the application once. Open the newly created web app via the URL https://<YOURAPPNAME>.azurewebsites.net and click on the “Initialize HEDDA.IO” button.
The initialization of the Web App may take a few minutes. After the Web App has been successfully initialized, you will be automatically redirected to the HEDDA.IO home page. Here you can download the Excel Add-in and the SSIS component.
To connect to your installation of HEDDA.IO you need an API Key. When you deploy your installation, a temporary API key will be generated. To get the key open the Web App in the Azure Portal and switch to the Application Settings. In the Application Settings area you will find an entry heddaioApiKey. Change the corresponding entry to a randomly selected character string as long as possible. Please note that the default API key is not secure for a production instance.
