Azure cli provides powerful tools before Portal is finally polished

But first , the tricky part is using Azure’s CLI tool . I would suggest using node version:

Installing : npm -g install azure-cli

Once you’re done, they require you to upload .publishsettings file , oddly named its also not easily accessible. Run the following command

azure account download

Above command will actually open a browser and if you’re logged in (azure) you will be able to download it.

Next step is importing it

azure account import filename.publishsettings

 

At this point you want to switch to Resource Manager mode, its a newer API architecture where everything is configurable via JSON structure and this is inline with new Portal management. The following command will switch you to that mode:

azure config mode arm
