PowerShell in Cloud Shell in Public Preview

Announced alongside Microsoft Ignite’s first day full of keynotes, the company is introducing PowerShell in Cloud Shell as a public preview.

PowerShell in Cloud Shell provides the following:

  • Authenticated shell access to Azure from virtually anywhere.
  • Common tools and programming languages in a shell that’s updated and maintained by Microsoft.
  • Persist your files across sessions in attached Azure File storage.
  • Resource group scoping for Azure PowerShell cmdlets, when within the context of a resource group path in the Azure drive.
  • Context-sensitive command list using Get-AzureRmCommand. It only lists commands that are applicable to items under the path in Azure drive.
  • Rich PowerShell script editing using VIM, which provides built-in syntax highlighting and IntelliSense for PowerShell files.
  • An extensible model for adding new commands (via modules and scripts) from the PowerShell Gallery, which automatically persisted across your Cloud Shell sessions.
  • Enables interactions with VMs using PowerShell remoting to enable management of guest VMs.
