Azure CLI Extensions

Length: 00:05:16

Lesson Summary:

In this video we look at how the functionality and commands available through Azure CLI can be extended using extensions.

Extensions add commands to Azure CLI which are not normally available through the default installation. These might be custom features or experimental functionality for services Microsoft currently has in preview.

We briefly discuss how to find and install extensions, as well as two common examples of extensions: az interactive and az find.

New and helpful commands:

  • Listing extensions: az extension list
  • Installing an extension: az extension add --name extension
  • Using interactive mode: az interactive
  • Using the find AI: az find

All commands used if you wish to follow along:

az extension list -o table

az interactive
# to exit itneractive mode use CTRL+d

az find
az find "az group create"
# press Enter to exit az find
