PowerShell–Azure ‘Az’ Module

A few weeks ago there was a new Module released for Azure called, Azure PowerShell ‘Az’ Module version 1.0

Az runs on Windows PowerShell 5.1 and PowerShell Core (cross-platform)

It can be used side-by-side the existing AzureRM Module.

But new features will only be released in the Az module.

To install the new module run this command using Admin priviliges.

Install -Module -Name Az


To see if the installation was successful run this command

Get-Module -ListAvailable "Az*"


To list all the commands run this command

Get-Command -Name *Az*


The connection method has been changed compared to what you are used to.

The Get-Credential cmdlet is replaced with Connect-AzAccount

Once executed you will see this reply


Go to the URL https://microsoft.com/devicelogin and fill in the code you got using this command
