Azure – You can now use ephemeral Cloud Shell

If you use Microsoft Azure cloud services, you probably are already aware about the Cloud Shell functionality which allows you to run PowerShell or Bash scripts/commands directly from the web browser.

This functionality requires to setup a storage account to store your scripts and user sessions.

Well good news as now you can also use an ephemeral Cloud Shell.

As the session will be short-lived, every file or session context will not be kept after you close the session.

When you launch Cloud Shell (either from the icon image or the direct URL you will be asked to either use “No storage account” or “Mount a storage account”)
