Downloading Azure Subscription File


This approach is useful for scenario where you work on a client workspace, where you don’t directly sign to root level Azure management portal. This was tested on Chrome.

Once after you login to client workspace level:

https://manage.windowsazure.com/@[YOURCLIENTNAME].onmicrosoft.com#Workspaces/All/dashboard

On the same browser copy the following url and hit enter:

https://manage.windowsazure.com/publishsettings/

you will notice the subscription file related to the client workspace getting downloaded.

 

The usual approach for this, when you have root level azure management access:

  • Set the Windows PowerShell script execution policy to RemoteSigned:

Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

  • Import the Windows Azure PowerShell module:

Import-Module Azure

  • Download the Windows Azure Publish Settings file for your Windows Azure subscription. When you run this cmdlet, a web browser launches and asks you to sign in. Sign in with the same user name and password credentials that you used when you activated your Windows Azure subscription.

Get-AzurePublishSettingsFile 

Note  When you save your Publish Settings file, specify a short easily-typed file name to save your file.
