R language and Azure Machine Learning SDK for R was deprecated a year ago (end of 2021). But R can be still used for training and deployment by using Azure Machine learning CLI 2.0!
Furthermore, R language can be used in Machine Learning Designer, for data preparation, data wrangling and statistical analysis.
AzureML SKD for R can be found on this page: https://azure.github.io/azureml-sdk-for-r/index.html.
Another way to user R is to use Posit (RStudio) on your compute instance. When you will be creating a new compute instance and you will get to the application usages
You can also install RStudio (Posit). But you will need a R Workbench license in order to install it.
On the Posit website, you can purchase the product
And from there on, you need to add an additional application when configuring a compute instance.
You enter the license key and the Posit (Rstudio) will be available as an application and development environment for your disposal.
So, there are ways to use R in Azure ML, and you can always choose your preferred tool.
Compete set of code, documents, notebooks, and all of the materials will be available at the Github repository: https://github.com/tomaztk/Azure-Machine-Learning
Happy Advent of 2022!
