Click the agreement checkbox and click purchase to deploy the Bold BI web app.
The deployment of the Bold BI Azure App service (web app) will start.
An app service plan has been created for the web app, which will default to Basic – B1. You can learn more about app service plans here. The Bold BI web app does not support Free or Shared app service plans. Instead, it supports Basic, Standard, and Premium App Service plans in Azure. The Basic plan is the minimum recommended App Service plan for running the application. For improved performance, you can scale up the App Service plan from Basic to Standard or Premium plans. Below, you can find documentation links on how to scale up and scale out the App Service plan.
