The Azure portal is a web-based, unified console that provides an alternative to command-line tools. With the Azure portal, you can manage your Azure subscription using a graphical user interface. You can build, manage, and monitor everything from simple web apps to complex cloud deployments. Create custom dashboards for an organized view of resources. Configure accessibility options for an optimal experience.
The figure below labels the basic elements of the Azure portal, each of which are described in the following table.
As a new subscriber to Azure services, the first thing you see after you sign in to the portal is Azure Home. This page compiles resources that help you get the most from your Azure subscription. You can’t customize this page, but you can choose whether to see Azure Home or Azure Dashboard as your default view. The first time you sign in, there’s a prompt at the top of the page where you can save your preference.
The Azure portal menu can be docked or it can act as a flyout panel. When the portal menu is in flyout mode, it's hidden until you need it. Select the menu icon to open or close the menu.
Both the Azure portal menu and the Azure default view can be changed in Portal settings. If you change your selection, the change is immediately applied.
