Azure CLI Day 24 – mobile preview list


In my previous post ( I showed you how to list the details of a Windows Azure Mobile Service using the cross platform command line tools. In this post I’ll show you how to view a list of preview features available to use with a Windows Azure Mobile Service.

Once again, just a reminder that I’m using the command line tools on a MacBook Air with OSX (Mountain Lion) installed, and I’m using Google Chrome as my default browser. However, the experience should be identical on Windows and Linux as well.

Open an instance of your command line (Terminal, Bash, Command Prompt, etc.) and type the following:

azure preview list -h

The mobile preview list command shows the preview features available for a mobile service. All you need to provide is the name of the service you want to see preview features for. Now enter the following into your CLI, substituting as appropriate:

azure mobile preview list “[YOUR MOBILE SERVICE NAME]“

In my case I entered the following:

azure mobile preview list “zumo101″

At the time of this writing, the only preview feature available to my Windows Azure Mobile Serivce is SourceControl. The feature allows me to use the popular distributed version control system Git to for source code control and continuous deployment. In my next post, I’ll show you how to enable this feature.
