Azure CLI 2.0 is optimized for managing and administering Azure resources from the command line, and for building automation scripts that work against the Azure Resource Manager
a LRS storage account is created on your behalf with an Azure file share containing a default 5-GB disk image.
This disk image is used to sync and persist your $Home directory. Regular storage costs apply. Three resources will be created on your behalf:
- Resource Group named: cloud-shell-storage-<region>
- Storage Account named: cs-uniqueGuid
- File Share named: cs-<user>-<domain>-com-uniqueGuid
So that’s it. To easy?
As the default help shows you with az account list you get a list off your azure subscriptions
For selecting the right subscription when creating resources
- az account set –subscription “MVP-platforms”
Remember using options use – and not like in powershell –
Now creating a Resource group in the selected Subscription
- az group create –name clustermvp –location westus
So very handy on quick creating items in the shell, Still I prefer PowerShell but that’s my thing and I see the options of this and It is a nice new feature.
Quick on creating a new storage account and get the right connection
create a new storage account
- az storage account create –resource-group clustermvp –location westus –name clustermvp –sku Standard_LRS –kind Storage
az storage account show-connection-string –resource-group clustermvp –name clustermvp
Copy the connection string for usage in storage explorer or other usage.
Using the connection string in storage explorer
Fully working string.
