4.5 Ubuntu Azure CLI


An Azure virtual machine (and in fact all Azure services) can be managed through the Azure command line tool.

See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/cli/azure/install-azure-cli-linux.

Install CLI

wajig update
wajig install ca-certificates curl apt-transport-https lsb-release gnupg
curl -sL https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc |
    gpg --dearmor |
    sudo tee /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/microsoft.gpg > /dev/null
AZ_REPO=$(lsb_release -cs)
echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://packages.microsoft.com/repos/azure-cli/ $AZ_REPO main" |
    sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/azure-cli.list
wajig update
wajig install azure-cli

There is no repos for Ubuntu 21.04 (hirsute) so edit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/azure-cli.list to replace hirute with groovy.
