Update the REST API to support all the feature sets that are currently available via the PowerShell Commandlets.
The idea is that any feature that is available to a powershell commandlet for the Azure environment should be available via a REST API.
When working with a cloud provider, a user should not have to worry about what the underlying system is running, but be able to hook it into my current automation tools. Actions against a cloud providers should allow for access via any programming language that is able to access a RESTful API.
Also, having to fall back on a command line tool and not do something programmatically provides for environments that are difficult to maintain and control.
Can you be specific about which feature you’re looking for? Our PS cmdlets wrap the public REST API, and their source code is available here: https://github.com/WindowsAzure/azure-sdk-tools
Tabrez is correct. Eric, if you see something different, could you please provide an example?
