Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Add-AzureEnvironment [-Name] <String> [[-PublishSettingsFileUrl] <String> ] [[-ServiceEndpoint] <String> ] [[-ManagementPortalUrl] <String> ] [[-StorageEndpoint] <String> ] [[-ActiveDirectoryEndpoint] <String> ] [[-ResourceManagerEndpoint] <String> ] [[-GalleryEndpoint] <String> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Add-AzureEnvironment cmdlet creates a new custom Azure account environment and saves it in your roaming user profile. The cmdlet returns an object that represents the new environment. When the command completes, you can use the environment in Windows PowerShell.

An Azure environment an independent deployment of Microsoft Azure, such as AzureCloud for global Azure and AzureChinaCloud for Azure operated by 21Vianet in China. You can also create on-premises Azure environments by using Azure Pack and the WAPack cmdlets. For more information, see Azure Pack (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/products/windows-azure-pack/default.aspx).

Only the Name parameter of this cmdlet is mandatory. If you omit a parameter, its value is null ($null), and the service that uses that endpoint might not function properly. To add or change the value of an environment property, use the Set-AzureEnvironment cmdlet.

NOTE: Changing your environment can cause your account to fail. Typically, environments are added only for testing or troubleshooting.

This topic describes the cmdlet in the 0.8.1 version of the Microsoft Azure PowerShell module. To find out the version of the module you're using, from the Azure PowerShell console, type (get-module azure).version.
