After you add the PostgreSQL software to the Azure virtualization client, you can configure the instance endpoint.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers > client > PostgreSQL.
  2. Right-click the agent, point to All Tasks > New PosgreSQL Instance.

    The PostgreSQL Create Instance dialog box appears.

  3. On the General tab,make the following selections:
    1. From the Instance Name list, select the Azure database instance.
    2. In the Endpoint box, type the endpoint that you use to connect to the Azure PostgreSQL database.

      The endpoint includes the DNS names and the port number, for example, postgresqldb.example.eu-central-1.abc.Azure.com:3306.

    3. In the PostGres User Name and PostGres Password boxes, type the credentials for a user that has permissions to perform backup and restore operations on the Azure database.
    4. In the Maintenance DB box, type the database that the PostgreSQL pgAdmin command connects to.
  4. Click OK.
