Technical Thursday – Azure PowerShell on Linux

We are waiting for ages to this news…From now we can use Azure PowerShel on Linux and macOS.

In the past we was able to install PowerShell to our Linux but we did not have chance to manage Azure from PowerShell on Linux. Although “both PowerShell Core v6 and Azure PowerShell for .NET Core are still in beta” this is a milestone which brings closer Windows and Linux worlds.

You can find an article on Azure site about the installation and configuration.

 

Observations

Installation

This page begins with installation steps first where you can find the “Start PowerShell” part. I have a suggestion there for the very first execution. Run that with root (sudo):

# Start PowerShell
sudo pwsh

It is important because without it you cannot install AzureRM.NetCore module (...you don't have the required permissions.).

 

 Login to Azure

As you can find in the article uses https://aka.ms/devicelogin url for finalize the Login process. It works fine. To be honest I’d like to use the credential based login:

# Get credential data from user (username and password)
$credential = Get-Credential

# Login to Azure MDC
Login-AzureRMAccount -Environment AzureGermanCloud -Credential $credential

 

Let’s discover the opportunities of this new mixed world.
