  • GA release

7.0.0b1 (2020-10-12)

This is beta preview version.

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.

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.
