Adding endpoints to your Windows Azure Virtual Machines with CSV file

In order to manage endpoints of a Virtual Machine you have 2 options: use the portal or use Powershell. If you use the portal it’s not so easy to add a list or a range or ports, you would need to add these ports one by one. The other way you can manage these endpoints is by writing Powershell scripts and that’s what I did over and over again for the past few months. What I wanted was some way to easily add endpoints to newly created Virtual Machines. A CSV file would be perfect for this. It’s easy to manage (in Excel for example) and you can create different templates to improve reusability. That’s why I created the Import-AzureEndpointsFromCSV.ps1 script.
