Configure a dedicated Azure hosting plan for xDB Reporting

Abstract

How to configure xDB Reporting to use a dedicated hosting plan for Sitecore XP1 Azure deployments.

In the default Sitecore XP1 Azure deployment, Content Management (CM) and xDB Reporting are configured to share the CM hosting plan (-cm-hp). This reduces the cost of hosting Sitecore XP1 on Azure, but you can still configure xDB Reporting to use a dedicated hosting plan.

To configure xDB Reporting to use a dedicated hosting plan:

  1. Open the parameter file that you pass to the Start-SitecoreAzureDeployment script.

  2. Add the following configuration:

    "useDedicatedHostingPlanForReporting":  { "value":  true }

    Note

    If you set the useDedicatedHostingPlanForReporting value to false, CM and xDB Reporting uses the shared CM hosting plan.

  3. Save the parameter file.
