The app helps to access your resources while on the road and offers basic functionality for management. Let’s start by installing the app.
After logging in you can choose the AAD tenant and the correct subscription.
The app can’t deploy new resources. But we can see existing resources and relations. In some cases (currently IaaS VMs and Web Apps) we get relevant metrics as well. I am sure this option will be available for more resource types in the future.
With virtual machines we get the biggest collection of options including Start, Stop and Connect Actions. When the VM is running and you select connect, the Remote Desktop App will get launched and you’ll get prompted for credentials.
What I’m most exited about is the Cloud shell screen. Sadly it currently still says “Coming soon”. Not all management options can and will ever be implemented directly and natively in the app. But using the cloud shell and Azure CLI options for management from the app are nearly unlimited. This way one would be able to deploy stored templates or edit any resource.
