A publishing platform for the work you create in R and Python

RStudio Connect on Azure is perfect for proof of concepts and urgent or important shorter term projects or those with unusual compute requirements. Use push-button publishing from your RStudio IDE, scheduled execution of reports, and simple password authentication (default) to put your data products into the hands of thousands of end users or just a few colleagues in minutes and hours instead of the days or weeks that conventional enterprise provisioning or procurement can take.

RStudio Connect on Azure comes installed with 5 versions of R built from source: 3.3.3, 3.4.4, 3.5.3, 3.6.3, and 4.0.3 as well as a version of Python built from source: 3.8.4. To get started, select your compute instance, start Connect, and use your administrative privileges to adjust your configuration. You’ll be up and running in no time!


Connect to http://instance-public-ip-address:3939 and create your admin user.

To configure RStudio Connect to use a different database other than the default configuration of SQLite, see the administration guide: Changing Database Provider

To change your user authentication from the default local user account and password (e.g., integrate with your Active Directory or LDAP infrastructure), see the administration guide: Changing Authentication Provider
