The Visual Studio Server Explorer can show the Azure services that are part of your Azure account. This tutorial looks at how to connect to Azure from within Visual Studio.
- It's time to connect to my Azure account…from Visual Studio.…To do that, I'll need to make a connection…in Visual Studio using the sign in button.…Now normally you sign in one time…and then every time you open up Visual Studio,…if you've saved your password, then it remembers you…and it'll automatically show your Azure…note over here in Server Explorer.…For this demonstration, I removed my credentials…so that I can walk you through the process of signing in.…And notice that I'm not signed into Visual Studio either,…I'm missing my avatar up here…in the upper right hand corner.…
So I'll click the sign in hyperlink,…I'll enter my email address…and then click the continue button.…That takes me to the Microsoft account sign in.…I'll enter my email and password, click sign in.…Three things happened.…In the upper right my name appears…and my icon or my avatar appears.…And then over here in Server Explorer,…it connected to Azure and that red X went away.…Now I can expand this note and see all of the items…that I have currently available in my Azure account.…
