- Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines
- Hosted Services
- Infrastructure Services
- Scheduler
- Storage Accounts
- Subscription information
- Networks
- Web Sites
- SQL Databases

Management operations require the X509Certificate2 type that is not present in the Portable Class Library API surface area. The Common.NetFramework library exposes this functionality. Microsoft Azure Active Directory integration is enabled for token-based authentication and requires a Microsoft.IdentityModel.Clients.ActiveDirectory package.

There are no supported framework assets in this package.
