Full Description

Microsoft Azure CLI 2.0


A great cloud needs great tools; we're excited to introduce Azure CLI 2.0, our next generation multi-platform command line experience for Azure.

Installation

$ curl -L https://aka.ms/InstallAzureCli | bash

Please refer to the install guide for detailed install instructions.

A list of common install issues and their resolutions are available at install troubleshooting.

Developer Installation (see below)

Usage

$ az [ group ] [ subgroup ] [ command ] {parameters}

Get Started

Please refer to the "get started" guide for in-depth instructions.

For usage and help content, pass in the -h parameter, for example:

$ az storage -h
$ az vm create -h

Highlights

Here are a few features and concepts that can help you get the most out of the Azure CLI 2.0 Preview

The following examples are showing using the --output table format, you can change your default using the az configure command.

Tab Completion

We support tab-completion for groups, commands, and some parameters

# looking up resource group and name
$ az vm show -g [tab][tab]
AccountingGroup   RGOne  WebPropertiesRG

$ az vm show -g WebPropertiesRG -n [tab][tab]
StoreVM  Bizlogic

$ az vm show -g WebPropertiesRG -n Bizlogic

Query

You can use the --query parameter and the JMESPath query syntax to customize your output.

$ az vm list --query "[?provisioningState=='Succeeded'].{ name: name, os: storageProfile.osDisk.osType }"
Name                    Os
----------------------  -------
storevm                 Linux
bizlogic                Linux
demo32111vm             Windows
dcos-master-39DB807E-0  Linux

Creating a VM

The following block creates a new resource group in the 'westus' region, then creates a new Ubuntu VM. We automatically provide a series of smart defaults, such as setting up SSH with your ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub key. For more details, try az vm create -h.

$ az group create -l westus -n MyGroup
Name     Location
-------  ----------
MyGroup  westus

$ az vm create -g MyGroup -n MyVM --image ubuntults
MacAddress         ResourceGroup    PublicIpAddress    PrivateIpAddress
-----------------  ---------------  -----------------  ------------------
00-0D-3A-30-B2-D7  MyGroup          52.160.111.118     10.0.0.4

$ ssh 52.160.111.118

Developer Installation

Docker

This install does not support the component feature.

We maintain a Docker image preconfigured with the Azure CLI. Run the latest automated Docker build with the command below.

$ docker run -v ${HOME}:/root -it azuresdk/azure-cli-python:latest

All command modules are included in this version as the image is built directly from the Git repository.
You can also get a specific version of Azure CLI 2.0 via Docker.

$ docker run -v ${HOME}:/root -it azuresdk/azure-cli-python:<version>

See our Docker tags for available versions.

Nightly Builds

Install nightly builds with pip in a virtual environment.

$ pip install --pre azure-cli --extra-index-url https://azureclinightly.blob.core.windows.net/packages
  • Builds happen at 21:00:00 PDT each night. They are published shortly afterwards.
  • Whilst all command modules are built each night, not all are included on install.
  • Install additional components with:
      $ export AZURE_COMPONENT_PACKAGE_INDEX_URL=https://azureclinightly.blob.core.windows.net/packages
    
      $ az component update --add <component_name> --private
    
  • To view the list of installed packages, run az component list

This is fantastic but would be good to have a formal way to add the CLI to another docker container i.e. as part of say a TeamCity Buildagent docker image.
