With a Logic App, you can create and run scalable workflows that are hosted in the Azure cloud. A graphical designer and connectors to hundreds of databases, APIs, and external applications and services make it possible to quickly create a workflow using Logic Apps.
To create a new Logic App, navigate to the Azure Portal, sign in and click the [Create a resource] button (Fig. 1).
Select Integration | Logic App, as shown in Fig. 2.
The "Create Logic App" blade with the "Basics" tab selected, as shown in Fig. 3.
At the "Resource group" field, select or create a resource group in which to store this Logic App.
At the "Logic App name" field, enter a unique name for this Logic App.
At the "Location" dropdown, select the region in which to store this Logic App.
Click the [Review + create] button when you have completed this tab. The "Review + create" tab displays, as shown in Fig. 4.
Review your choices. Switch back to the "Basics" tab if you need to make any corrections. Click the [Create] button to create the Integration Account.
After Azure creates the Logic App, the "Your deployment is complete" message displays, as shown in Fig. 5.
Click the [Go to resource] button to open the Start Page of your Logic App, as shown in Fig. 6.
On the start page, a video is available if you want a brief introduction to Logic Apps.
Below the video is a set of buttons that allow you to create a new workflow with a common trigger. A trigger is an action that starts a Logic App workflow.
The next section lists buttons for templates to perform some common tasks. Each template contains a trigger and one or more actions.
These buttons help to accelerate your development by providing some of the activities in a workflow and allowing you to fill in the specific properties.
