Windows Azure SQL Database Marketplace
Today, we are releasing a preview of the Windows Azure Service Management API to help you manage your deployments, hosted services and storage accounts. This is a REST-based API which users can code against in their toolset of choice to manage their services.
API Details at a glance
How do I get started?
The documentation has detailed information on this but here’s a quick starter.
makecert -r -pe -a sha1 -n "CN=Windows Azure Authentication Certificate" -ss My -len 2048 -sp "Microsoft Enhanced RSA and AES Cryptographic Provider" -sy 24 testcert.cer
In the pipeline
Over the next few weeks, we’ll publishing a sample .NET client library and samples, all with source code, to show how to use the API’s functionality. This API is currently in CTP form and users should expect changes as we improve the service based on feedback.
As always, we welcome any feedback. Play with the API and tell us what you think!
