This is a multi-part, self paced quick start exercise where we will use Rafay's Terraform Provider to provision a RBAC controlled, dedicated operating environment aka project for an application team/business unit on Microsoft Azure AKS. We will then run a number of day-two operations on our cluster. Resources can be customized and provisioned in a sequence as described in the image below.

What Will You Do by Part¶
|Part||What will you do?|
|1||Build out the infrastructure required to support Project as a Service (PaaS) in Microsoft Azure. This will be using Rafay's Terraform provider to provision a number of Rafay resources. Once complete we will navigate the console and view the cluster through the integrated dashboard and securely access the cluster's API server using zero trust kubectl|
|2||Walk through a number of day-two operations on the cluster|
|3||Deprovision the cluster and remove the underlying infrastructure|
