Microsoft Azure Command-Line Interface (CLI)
29 July 2022
One of the reasons that I have not been blogging as much; although, I have a number of reasons, is that there is SO much AWESOME available on Microsoft Docs.
Take for instance the definition of the Azure Command Line Interface. You can learn about CLI here or here or we used it to build out our CI/CD pipelines so you can also reference here.
"The Azure command-line interface (Azure CLI) is a set of commands used to create and manage Azure resources."
Now I am about the farthest point of SME from CLI as a rock on Saturn and those who really know me can attest that I even have my own personal battles and kremlins with some of the logic of CI/CD within Azure DevOps, but I can still share with you a doorway into using this great tool.
Why bother? The One Word Answer = SPEED.
"The Azure Command-Line Interface (CLI) is a cross-platform command-line tool that can be installed locally on Windows computers. You can use the Azure CLI for Windows to connect to Azure and execute administrative commands on Azure resources. The Azure CLI for Windows can also be used from a browser through the Azure Cloud Shell or run from inside a Docker container." (retrieved from Install the Azure CLI for Windows | Microsoft Docs)
