To add Public Azure images for use in Scalr you will need to manually register the desired images in Scalr using the Cloud Image ID, or Image URN, from the marketplace.

The URN is not available from the UI and must be extracted via the Azure CLI.

Typically Image URN Format = PublisherName/Offer/SKUs/verison .  Examples:

  • MicrosoftWindowsServer/WindowsServer/2016-Technical-Preview-with-Containers/latest
  • MicrosoftWindowsServer/WindowsServer/2012-R2-Datacenter/latest

Example of image registration process from the Global Scope is shown below.  Be sure to provide the correct OS information as Scalr is unable to validate this property.
