Microsoft Azure PowerShell


This package skips automatic verification:

Requires 4.5.2 which requires a reboot.

This package was approved as a trusted package on 9/25/2018.

Azure PowerShell provides a set of cmdlets that use the Azure Resource Manager model for managing your Azure resources. You can use it in your browser with Azure Cloud Shell, or you can install it on your local machine and use it in any PowerShell session.

Azure PowerShell requires PowerShell 3.0 or later, which can be installed using the powershell package. This package does not define a dependency on that package to avoid causing a potentially undesired update to the newest PowerShell.

NOTE: This is an automatically updated package. If you find it is out of date by more than a week, please contact the maintainer(s) and let them know the package is no longer updating correctly.

To install Microsoft Azure PowerShell, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install azurepowershell

To upgrade Microsoft Azure PowerShell, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade azurepowershell

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
