To connect to Microsoft Azure, you need your Azure subscription ID and a valid management certificate.
You can create a self-signed management certificate on your machine using the makecert.exe tool. This is a tool provided by Microsoft for creating certificates that is packaged with Studio. Open a command prompt as an administrator and use the following command, replacing AzureCertificate with the certificate name you would like to use.
C:\Program Files (x86)\eggPlant Performance\bin\makecert -sky exchange -r -n "CN=AzureCertificate" -pe -a sha1 -len 2048 -ss My "AzureCertificate.cer"
The command will create the .cer file, and install it in the Personal certificate store.
After you have created the certificate, you will need to upload the .cer file to Azure via the Upload action from the Settings tab of the Azure management portal.
When entering Stored Credentials for your Azure account, you will need to enter the path to this certificate. For the example above, the path would be: CURRENT_USER\my\AzureCertificate.
