One of the really cool things Azure has introduced recently has been it’s Cloud Shell.
This is the ability to run a PowerShell command line window directly in a browser or on a mobile device. You did this by selecting the shell icon in the portal as shown above. When you did so you got a command line in the lower half of your browser. Really handy.
Now all of this is happening in a browser and until now you needed to access this by logging into the Azure portal. Well, if you now navigate directly to:
You’ll be able to login to the Azure Cloud Shell directly.
When you go there you’ll need to select a subscription to use (in case your have a few).
Once you have selected this an Azure Cloud Shell will spin up right in your browser as shown above. It may take a few minutes to do this and actually get to the command prompt, so be patient.
Once there, you can execute PowerShell commands against the tenant.
How cool is that?
