When creating a new CData API Server VM, you will be prompted to choose a Resource group, Virtual Machine name, Region and VM size. You will also need to create an Administrator user and password. Once the CData API Server VM has started, it will be assigned a public IP address. To access the API Server, open your browser and navigate to https://<your-ip-address>. Login with the user "admin", and the password is the Virtual Machine name (first 15 characters only) you specified in the first step.
