New Tools are now available in Azure Cloud Shell

Published date: August 06, 2019

Azure Cloud Shell now has some new tools. Cloud Shell provides an interactive, browser-accessible, authenticated shell for managing Azure resources from virtually anywhere. The goal of Azure Cloud Shell is to ensure that you always have access to an up-to-date environment with the latest tools for management. Our efforts are driven by your feedback and for this latest release we incorporated some of the most popular requests. 

The new tools include: 

  • Azure Functions CLI—The Azure Functions CLI gives you the ability to create, test, run, and debug Azure Functions. Create and run your first Azure Function using these steps
  • Bolt—Puppet Bolt is an open source tool to automate the management of your infrastructure. Use it to automate tasks that are part of your day-to-day workflows, or to automate your as-needed tasks. 
  • Packer—HashiCorp Packer is a tool to automate the creation of a machine image, whether it’s a VM, a container, or more from a single configuration source. 

Updated tools: 

Try these tools to manage your Azure resources from your browser in more ways than ever.  Access Azure Cloud Shell and the included tools from the Azure portal, the Cloud Shell stand-alone experience, the Azure mobile app, or the Azure Account Extension for Visual Studio Code.

We welcome any feedback you may have to help us deliver a better experience.
