Managing Your Azure Resources Via Mobile

Microsoft Azure offers up a lot of technologies that you can play around with. One thing that you might not know is that they also offer up a mobile presence to help manage your Azure resource. The application is available for download for your mobile devices from the app store (Apple or Google).

Once downloaded and connected to your subscription, you can -

  • See all of your resources and easily start/stop virtual machines.

  • See and manage multiple accounts. As shown below, I have two Azure accounts, one through my employer, Denny Cherry and Associates Consulting and the other a personal account. I can easily switch accounts from within the application.

The application even offers the ability to run scripts via Azure CLI or PowerShell. Let’s try it out! I’ll use my mobile device to spin up a new resource group, called MobileDemo using Azure CLI.

The application returns that the provisioning “Succeeded”.

Features such as this only amplify the power of Azure and how easy it is to manage resources. If you haven’t played around with it yet, I recommend downloading it and connecting it to your Azure subscription. If you do not have a subscription yet, you can get one for free!!
