This provider does not recognize any special metadata fields unique to Azure DNS.
DNSControl depends on a standard Client credentials Authentication with permission to list, create and update hosted zones.
If a domain does not exist in your Azure account, DNSControl will not automatically add it with the
push command. You can do that either manually via the control panel, or via the command
dnscontrol create-domains command.
