The Azure Portal Desktop application is great. I love it and I use it!
It avoids me having the open the Azure Portal in different browsers and have to deal with in-private windows and "public" windows.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, you can check out my article (in French) about that desktop app here:
If you want to automate the configuration of your dev boxes (for example, if you want to provide a common script to help all you developers to set up their development environment), then you'll certainly look for a way to automate the installation of the Azure Portal desktop application.
Simple, just use that script:
$url = 'https://portal.azure.com/App/Download?acceptLicense=true' $outputLocation = $env:USERPROFILE + '\AzurePortalInstaller.exe' $progresspreference = 'silentlyContinue' Invoke-WebRequest $url -OutFile $outputLocation $progressPreference = 'Continue' & $outputLocation /Q
Basically, all that script does is to download the installation package and runs it in quiet mode.
Today, we've learned that we can automate the installation of the Azure portal desktop app. This might be useful if you want to automate the configuration of your dev boxes.
See you soon!
