Step by Step: Deploy AX 2012 R3 on Azure via Life Cycle Service

AX 2012 R3 is finally here. With that they have made the demo environment available on Azure and can be deployed using Life Cycle Service.

There are a few posts out there detailing but I thought I do a quick screenshot step by step guide on how to deploy AX 2013 R3 on Azure via Life Cycle Service.
