JumpStart # 30– Create Azure Cloud Service Package (CSPKG) of Visual Studio 2013 project solution using PowerShell
There can be scenarios where we need to have control on building the Azure Cloud Service Packages, say for example when we want to dynamically override some files in the project and build the package on the fly. In this short tutorial, we are going to see how to create a CSPKG file, which can be deployed to a Azure Cloud Service. Although Windows Azure PowerShell Cmdlets provide an option Save-AzureServiceProjectPackage to create a package file for a cloud project, this cmdlet is NOT (atleast with Windows Azure PowerShell 0.7.1 version) going to work for the project solutions which are created using Visual Studio IDE. Save-AzureServicePRojectPackage is only going to work for solutions which are created using cmdlets.
