Here’s a short video I recorded that goes over how to access the Azure Portal (the Current Azure Management Portal). I cover an overview of the dynamics and mechanics of the Azure Portal and how to use it. I also show a few different ways of how to customize the Azure Portal to change the color theme, modify quicklinks in the left-side navigation, and how to easily customize and create multiple Dashboard views to give you easy DevOps style views into your applications and workloads running in the Microsoft Azure cloud. Additionally, I also cover a few tips and techniques that may help you in working with the Azure Portal overall.

I hope you enjoy this video. This is really just the first in an ongoing series of videos that I’m going to be publishing over on the Build Azure YouTube Channel. If you’re interested in seeing MANY more videos like this, then please go Subscribe to the http://youtube.com/BuildAzure channel!

  1. Nice overview of the Azure portal.

    In my experience, most first-timers get thrown off by the horizontal layout of the Azure Portal as it’s a unique navigation scheme. I personally prefer it now since it saves me from opening up dozens of tabs and windows and keeps all my Azure activities in a single place.

    Takes a little bit of time to get used to it, but it’s well worth it in the end!
