Azure AD in Azure Portal

Microsoft has been hard at work to integrate all the existing Service Management API based services (such as VMs, Storage, Service Bus, etc) over to the Azure Resource Manager (ARM) API and including them in the newer, current Azure Portal (http://portal.azure.com). A few weeks ago the first bits of Service Bus started showing up in the Azure Portal, and today the newest Public Preview in the Azure Portal is the new support for Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) management within the current Azure Portal.

Here’s a short video from Channel 9 that shows off the new Azure AD portal UI:

Azure AD is one of the last hold outs to get addd to the current Azure Portal. Until everything gets moved over to support the ARM APIs and the current Azure Portal there will still be the Azure Portal duality, but today we are yet another step closer to only having a single Azure Portal to think about.
