Release History

1.0.0 (2020-12-22)


  • Model ExpressionEvaluationDetails has a new parameter expression_kind
  • Added operation group PolicyRestrictionsOperations

1.0.0b1 (2020-10-26)

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 if from some import. In summary, some modules were incorrectly visible/importable and have been renamed. This fixed several issues caused by usage of classes that were not supposed to be used in the first place. PolicyInsightsClient cannot be imported from azure.mgmt.policyinsights.policy_insights_client anymore (import from azure.mgmt.policyinsights works like before) PolicyInsightsClientConfiguration import has been moved from azure.mgmt.policyinsights.policy_insights_client to azure.mgmt.policyinsights A model MyClass from a "models" sub-module cannot be imported anymore using azure.mgmt.policyinsights.models.my_class (import from azure.mgmt.policyinsights.models works like before) An operation class MyClassOperations from an operations sub-module cannot be imported anymore using azure.mgmt.policyinsights.operations.my_class_operations (import from azure.mgmt.policyinsights.operations works like before) Last but not least, HTTP connection pooling is now enabled by default. You should always use a client as a context manager, or call close(), or use no more than one client per process.
