Published Nov 30 2020 09:00 AM 5,996 Views

We are back with more features to make working with containers easier with Windows Admin Center. The features in this update focus on making your experiences working with containers on-premises and in Azure easier.


New Containers extension layout

With the growing set of functionalities in the Containers extension, we have reformatted the tool to be easier to use and navigate. The tool now features its own extension tool bar instead of tabs, formatted to group tools based on their scenarios. We have added a section specifically for Azure to house the functionality coming in this and future releases.

Manage Azure Container Registry

You can now manage your Azure Container Registry without having to navigate to the portal. From this tool, you can create new registries, remove images, pull images into your local image repository, or run an instance of an image as an Azure Container Instance.

Manage Azure Container Instances

In tandem with the new features to manage and run container images out of your Azure Container Registry, you can now also manage your Azure Container Instances from Windows Admin Center. From here you can check the instance details, such as FQDN and IP address, as well as stop, delete, or restart container instances. In addition, you have a quick link to the Azure Portal for advanced management of each instance.

Containers extension available on public extension feed

Since our last update, the Containers extension is available on the public extension feed. Navigate from the top right in Windows Admin Center to Settings > Extensions > Available extensions to install the Containers tool. If you already have the tool installed, you can update it from the Installed extensions tab.
