Microsoft Azure Command-Line Tools VM Command Module
Microsoft Azure CLI ‘vm’ Command Module
This package is for the ‘vm’ module. i.e. ‘az vm’
[New Command Group]. image template: added image builder support via image template. These commands are in preview.

vm create: Added –computer-name for setting a vm’s computer name.
vm/vmss create: –ssh-key-value renamed to –ssh-key-values and can now accept multiple ssh public key values or paths. Note: this is not a breaking change. –ssh-key-value will be parsed correctly as it matches only –ssh-key-values
