Create a VS Online Team Project from the new Azure Portal

The new Azure Portal lets you create Visual Studio Online team projects without leaving the portal, and even lets you create additional Visual Studio Online accounts.  Currently, if you go directly to Visual Studio Online, you are only able to create a single VSO account per Microsoft ID.

You access the new portal by going to

From there, you can click on “New”, at the bottom left.  From there, you can create everything from a simple website, a VM, a SharePoint farm, Media Service, Mobile Services, and much more.  And of course, you can create a Visual Studio Online team project on an existing or new account.

To do so, Click on New, then select “Team Project”

The “New Team Project” dialog will slide in to the right:

Here you can enter:

  • New Team Project name
  • The version control provider that you want to use (TFS Version Control or Git)
  • Process Template (Scrum, Agile, CMMI)
  • The account that you want to use – You can either select an existing account or a new one.  If you select a new one, you will have a new <yourname> name.

It takes less than a minute for the Team Project to be created and you will have everything you need to start collaborating with the rest of your team!

    Is there any way to remove old folders from azure? When I delete a folder from my local and deploy project, it is not removing from Azure.

    From my point of view, dynamic scaling should be checked in advance to make sure everything is fine. The cloud infrastructure support provider should be used to compare between apples. If the test environment is different from the working one, data integrity raises serious questions.
    Here’s an indicative solution
