Cannot manage database in new SQL Azure portal, only in the old portal RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a Cloud Essentials subscription.

    In my Azure portal (https://windows.azure.com/Default.aspx) I cannot manage a SQL database.

    I have to go to the old portal (https://sql.azure.com/ProjectViewer.aspx). This is where I can see my SQL server details and can manage my SQL db.

    Here is the scenario:

    • login in to the new Azure portal https://windows.azure.com/
    • click on Database in the left screen navigator,  the taskbar at the top is greyed except for Subscription and View
    • in the middle pane you click on Create a new SQL Azure  Server and follow the dialogue
    • Then you click on Create a new SQL Azure database and follow the dialogue
    • after you complete the dialogue you return to the Windows Azure portal and the taskbasr remains greyed and you cannot manage the database.

    With the old SQL Azure portal, the dialogue is intuitive and clear.

    Has somebody a tip what is going on? Thanks, -Eric

  • I had same experience until I realized the way it works in new portal. Here is how it works,

    If you have already created SQL Azure server (and database), click on Database and then expand Subscriptions little above the left menu.

    Then you can see your Azure subscription name, SQL Azure server name and list of databases. When you select any of these, you will see respective options enabled on the top tool bar.

    HTH.
