As I haven’t posted for a while I wanted to just quickly post my findings on using Azure Powershell.
My aim here using only powershell is to:
- Connect to my Azure subscription
- Create a website in azure
- Stop the website
- Remove the website
Ok here goes.
Firstly you will need to install Azure Powershell so go here and work it out:
Then fire it up. It should look like this and you can find it in your windows start menu.
then we need to tell powershell about our azure subscription:
We just type Add-AzureAccount and you will be prompted to log into Azure.
Look here for info on this command:
After that you will see some confirmation that it fould your azure account:
You may need to change the execution policy for you to do things from your local Azure:
So here is my Azure website list before I add a new site:
So next I run New-AzureWebsite -Name MyPowerShellTest:
You can see it looks like it did something and returned info about my new site. If you look in Azure you can see the new site:
Ok so for fun, lets stop the site:
So it worked.
Now ill delete the website completely using:
Remove-AzureWebsite -Name MyPowerShellTest
And it’s gone:
Well, you will have to trust me as I cant show you nothing!
