Can’t access Azure SQL Database

There has been scenarios when Azure SQL Database is inaccessible. If this is the first time you are trying to access make sure that –

  1. Your IP is allowed in the firewall setting. To do this
    • Use http://www.ip-adress.eu/ to identify your IPv4
    • Or Use http://www.whatismypublicip.com/ to identify IPV4
    • Add this IP to the server firewall setting
    • Don’t try to add many IPs together because you can save only one IP at a time
    • Try to give a CORP range if there are many users who need to access the DB
    • It is not the best practice to keep the connection open to a wide range of IPs
  2. You are an authentic user of the Database. The database admin can help you give required permission.
