Project description

Microsoft Azure SDK for Python

This is the Microsoft Azure Consumption Client Library.

Azure Resource Manager (ARM) is the next generation of management APIs that replace the old Azure Service Management (ASM).

This package has been tested with Python 2.7, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6 and 3.7.

For the older Azure Service Management (ASM) libraries, see azure-servicemanagement-legacy library.

For a more complete set of Azure libraries, see the azure sdk python release.


To learn how to use this package, see the quickstart guide

For docs and references, see Python SDK References Code samples for this package can be found at Consumption Management on Additional code samples for different Azure services are available at Samples Repo

Release History

8.0.0 (2020-12-22)


  • Model ReservationRecommendationDetailsCalculatedSavingsProperties has a new parameter reserved_unit_count
  • Model ReservationRecommendationDetailsModel has a new parameter location
  • Model ReservationRecommendationDetailsModel has a new parameter sku

8.0.0b1 (2020-10-31)

This is beta preview version. For detailed changelog please refer to equivalent stable version 3.0.0(

This version uses a next-generation code generator that introduces important breaking changes, but also important new features (like unified authentication and async programming).

General breaking changes

  • Credential system has been completly revamped:

    • azure.common.credentials or msrestazure.azure_active_directory instances are no longer supported, use the azure-identity classes instead:
    • credentials parameter has been renamed credential
  • The config attribute no longer exists on a client, configuration should be passed as kwarg. Example: MyClient(credential, subscription_id, enable_logging=True). For a complete set of supported options, see the parameters accept in init documentation of azure-core

  • You can't import a version module anymore, use __version__ instead

  • Operations that used to return a msrest.polling.LROPoller now returns a azure.core.polling.LROPoller and are prefixed with begin_.

  • Exceptions tree have been simplified and most exceptions are now azure.core.exceptions.HttpResponseError (CloudError has been removed).

  • Most of the operation kwarg have changed. Some of the most noticeable:

General new features

  • Type annotations support using typing. SDKs are mypy ready.
  • This client has now stable and official support for async. Check the aio namespace of your package to find the async client.
  • This client now support natively tracing library like OpenCensus or OpenTelemetry. See this tracing quickstart for an overview.

3.0.0 (2018-05-16)

  • Model MeterDetails has a new parameter service_tier
  • Model Filters has a new parameter tags
  • Model Marketplace has a new parameter is_recurring_charge
  • Model PriceSheetProperties has a new parameter offer_id
  • Added operation
  • Added operation group ForecastsOperations
  • Added operation group ChargesOperations
  • Added operation group TagsOperations
  • Added operation group BalancesOperations
  • Added operation group ReservationRecommendationsOperations
  • Added operation group AggregatedCostOperations

Breaking changes

  • Model UsageDetail has a new signature
  • Removed operation BudgetsOperations.create_or_update_by_resource_group_name
  • Removed operation BudgetsOperations.get_by_resource_group_name
  • Removed operation BudgetsOperations.list_by_resource_group_name
  • Removed operation BudgetsOperations.delete_by_resource_group_name
  • Removed operation UsageDetailsOperations.list_by_billing_period
  • Removed operation MarketplacesOperations.list_by_billing_period

General Breaking changes

This version uses a next-generation code generator that might introduce breaking changes.

  • Model signatures now use only keyword-argument syntax. All positional arguments must be re-written as keyword-arguments. To keep auto-completion in most cases, models are now generated for Python 2 and Python 3. Python 3 uses the "*" syntax for keyword-only arguments.
  • Enum types now use the "str" mixin (class AzureEnum(str, Enum)) to improve the behavior when unrecognized enum values are encountered. While this is not a breaking change, the distinctions are important, and are documented here: At a glance:
    • "is" should not be used at all.
    • "format" will return the string value, where "%s" string formatting will return NameOfEnum.stringvalue. Format syntax should be prefered.
  • New Long Running Operation:
    • Return type changes from msrestazure.azure_operation.AzureOperationPoller to msrest.polling.LROPoller. External API is the same.
    • Return type is now always a msrest.polling.LROPoller, regardless of the optional parameters used.
    • The behavior has changed when using raw=True. Instead of returning the initial call result as ClientRawResponse, without polling, now this returns an LROPoller. After polling, the final resource will be returned as a ClientRawResponse.
    • New polling parameter. The default behavior is Polling=True which will poll using ARM algorithm. When Polling=False, the response of the initial call will be returned without polling.
    • polling parameter accepts instances of subclasses of msrest.polling.PollingMethod.
    • add_done_callback will no longer raise if called after polling is finished, but will instead execute the callback right away.
