Organizing your cloud assets starts with good names. It is best to be consistent and use:

  • All lower case – Use kebab case (“-“ as a separator)
  • Include which environment the resource is intended for i.e. dev, test, prod, etc.
  • Do not include the Resource Type in the name (Azure displays this)
  • If applicable, include the intended use of the resource in the name e.g. an app service may have a suffix api

Azure defines some best practices for naming and tagging your resource.

Having inconsistent resource names across projects creates all sorts of pain:

  • Developers will struggle to find a project’s resources and identify what those resources are being used for
  • Developers won’t know what to call new resources they need to create.
  • You run the risk of creating duplicate resources created because a developer has no idea that another developer created the same thing 6 months ago, under a different name, in a different Resource Group!
