Managing your Azure Subscription with PowerShell

Posted by Eduardo Lopez on Sep 12, 2019 10:04:00 AM

PowerShell is a well-known tool for System Admins for running scripts to perform a complex or repetitive task, which you can run locally or remotely.

PowerShell works with modules, depending on the type of service that you want to manage. You will need the corresponding module. For example, with Azure there is a specific module, the “Az” module, so you will need to have that module installed on the device or computer that you want to use to manage an Azure subscription. However, in the Azure portal, there is a tool called the “Cloud Shell”. Cloud Shell is a tool embedded in to the Azure portal that you can set up. It requires configuration of a storage account in your subscription to automatically store your Cloud Shell image in order to work with PowerShell or the Bash. This image already includes the PowerShell module, so you can run PowerShell just using a web browser and logging in to the Azure portal. In turn, you can use any device that can open the Azure portal.
