  1. Provide support for AzureAccount (username/password) instead of Management Certificates

    Instead of adding a subscription connection that only support management certificates it would be great to be able to add subscriptions using a username/password login (Like in Visual Studio or PowerShell with the Add-AzureAccount cmdlet)

      We have started working on this. Over this weekend we released a new version of Azure Management Studio which has this feature. Currently you can manage ARM Storage Accounts using this functionality. Please update your version of AMS to start using this feature. More about this can be found on our blog at: http://blog.cerebrata.com/managing-azure-resource-manager-storage-accounts-through-azure-management-studio/.

      Do give it a try and let us know your feedback.

      Thanks!

    • Add support for SQL Azure, especially backing up databases

      It would be great if I could backup my Windows Azure SQL Databases using Azure Management Studio.

      • Sign in with Windows Azure credentials

        In Azure SDK 2.2 and Visual Studio 2013 you no longer use management certificates to get access to Azure, but instead you login with your Microsoft Account or Active Directory.

        I would love to be able to do the same with Azure Management Studio.

        Especialy if I was forced to login every time i start Management Studio, because I could then finally use your wonderful tool for production environment.

          Over this weekend we released a new version of Azure Management Studio which lets you connect to your Azure Subscription using your Azure AD credentials. Currently you can only manage ARM Storage Accounts using this functionality, but more functionality will be added soon. Please update your copy of Azure Management Studio and give it a try. More information about this can be found on our blog at http://blog.cerebrata.com/managing-azure-resource-manager-storage-accounts-through-azure-management-studio/.

          Thanks!

        • Support for V2 (ARM) infrastructure

          I cannot see V2 Azure Resource Manager based virtual machines in Azure Management Studio.
          I'm hoping there is or will be support for the new platform.

            We have started working on it. Since VM functionality is quite extensive, we will be breaking this functionality into multiple releases. In the 1st release, we’re including following features: List VMs, Delete VMs, Start/Stop/Restart/Deallocate VM, ability to RDP into VM.

            If you’re interested in trying this out before we make a general release, please drop me an email and I will work on getting you access to one of our latest internal builds.

          • Table query drop down should show recent queries

            I think saved queries are interesting but recently used queries are more interesting.

            Can't the query text drop down reflect queries I've recently run?

                Thanks, Michael.

                First pass will introduce support to favorite blob locations. As we refine the table portion of the tool, we’ll do the same for tables.

                We are also planning to overhaul the main tree to support project views, filtering by name, Azure facet etc.
