Azure Database Status (classic) Test

This test enables administrators to determine how many Azure databases were registered with the Azure cloud and how many are currently powered on/powered off. In addition, this test helps administrators to determine how many Azure databases were currently added and how many databases were removed. Using this test, administrators can instantly identify the powered off databases i.e., unavailable databases and start investigating the exact reason behind the powered off status of the databases.
