Learn how to access the Cloud Shell from right within the Microsoft documentation in this edition of Azure Tips and Tricks. The Azure Cloud Shell allows us to easily run commands against our resources inside of the Azure portal.
But did you know that you could also run the Cloud Shell inside of the documentation? Here, I’m taking a look at this doc that’s telling me about how I can create a storage account I going to go down to this section that’s telling me about actually creating a resource group. Here in the doc, I’m going to select the section that says Azure CLI and I’m seeing the commands I need to use to actually create that resource. Now, I can easily hit the “Copy” button, and run this in my own terminal, or I could hit the “Try It” button. And what this will do, is actually open up the Cloud Shell here inside of my browser.
So, I’m going to actually copy this command now, and I’ll just paste it here inside the Cloud Shell And in little or no time, now my research has been created. If I head back over to the Azure portal and I click on “Resource Groups”, here you can see my empty research group has been created.
