How to connect Azure Redis Cache to Redsmin

Redsmin Redis GUI is tightly crafted developer oriented online real-time monitoring and administration service for Redis. So let's see how to setup Azure Redis Cache with Redsmin!

First connect to Azure Portal and create a new Azure Redis Cache:



Then copy the primary key (it's the redis auth key):


And finally copy the host and ssl port:


With our current example the redis connection string will be:
redis://zEbD/TkloUGvd+Eosuqr9keFhyH+A/6wRz0lcT6V/Ig=@redsmin.redis.cache.windows.net:6380
The final step is to retrieve the current azure SSL certificate. At the time of writing (01/12/2015) the current azure certificate public key is:

-----END CERTIFICATE-----
Note: If it does not work (e.g. the certificate is expired) you can always find the new one with (don't forget to change SERVER:SSL_PORT):
openssl x509 -in <(openssl s_client -connect SERVER:SSL_PORT -prexit 2>/dev/null)
Finally create a new Redsmin publicly available (SSL/TLS) server and enter the connection string and the certificate:


Et voila!
