Hi,

 

What is the difference between http://portal.azure.com and http://preview.portal.azure.com

 

Preview portal enables the public preview services which the portal. azure doesn't provide?

 

Thanks,

Jay

Azure offers preview features to you for evaluation purposes. A preview may include preview, beta, or other pre-release features, services, software, or regions. Previews are subject to reduced or different service terms, as set forth in your service agreement and the preview supplemental terms -https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/support/legal/preview-supplemental-terms/ . Previews are made available to you on the condition that you agree to these terms of use, which supplement your agreement governing the use of Azure.

So If you want to test preview features go for preview.portal.azure.com if production should you use portal.azure.com

Thanks for your replay! But some preview features are also enabled in the normal portal(production) too. I've seen some preview features in the normal portal (portal.azure.com) itself.

preview.portal.azure.com will give you preview features in the Azure Portal itself (think about Portal as an Azure service in this sense). UX changes to the portal that affect how you use it and how you manage services in Azure are made available there first. 

 

Does that help? 

 

Thanks!
