Microsoft Azure Resource Management Client Library for Python

Project description

Microsoft Azure SDK for Python

This is the Microsoft Azure Resource Management 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 and 3.6.

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

For a more complete set of Azure libraries, see the azure bundle package.


IMPORTANT: If you have an earlier version of the azure package (version < 1.0), you should uninstall it before installing this package.

You can check the version using pip:

pip freeze

If you see azure==0.11.0 (or any version below 1.0), uninstall it first:

pip uninstall azure


For code examples, see Resource Management on

If you encounter any bugs or have suggestions, please file an issue in the Issues section of the project.

Release History

2.0.0rc1 (2018-04-23)

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.


  • Add new ApiVersion 2018-02-01 (new default):
    • Add on_error_deployment
    • Support MSI in generic ARM resources
  • All clients now support Azure profiles.
  • Add generic resources update (2017-05-10 and 2018-02-01)
  • Add version to Plan


  • Compatibility of the sdist with wheel 0.31.0

1.2.0 (2017-10-05)


  • Add validate_move_resources
  • Add mode and metadata to PolicyDefinition
  • Add policy_definitions.get_built_in
  • Add policy_definitions.list_built_in
  • Add policy_definitions.create_or_update_at_management_group

    • Add skus to policy assignment

Bug fixes

  • Do not fail on 204 when deleting a policy assignment (2016-12-01)

Breaking changes to preview clients

  • Major renaming into ManagedApplication client, and GA ApiVersion 2017-09-01


  • We removed the “filter” parameter of policy_definitions.list method. However, we don’t upgrade the major version of the package, since this parameter has no meaning for the RestAPI and there is no way any Python users would have been able to use it anyway.

1.1.0 (2017-05-15)

  • Tag 1.1.0rc2 as stable (same content)

1.1.0rc2 (2017-05-12)

  • Add Policy ApiVersion 2015-10-01-preview (AzureStack default)

1.1.0rc1 (2017-05-08)

  • New default ApiVersion is now 2017-05-10. Breaking changes described in 1.0.0rc3 are now applied by default.

1.0.0rc3 (2017-05-04)

Bug fixes

  • Subscriptions: Removed deprecated tenant ID
  • Managed Applications: All list methods return an iterator

New Resources ApiVersion 2017-05-10

  • Deploy resources to multiple resource groups from one template

  • Some breaking changes are introduced compared to previous versions:

    • deployments.list has been renamed deployments.list_by_resource_group
    • resource_groups.list_resources has been moved to resources.list_by_resource_group
    • resource_groups.patch has been renamed to resource_groups.update and now takes an instance of ResourceGroupPatchable (and not ResourceGroup).

The default is still 2016-09-01 in this package, waiting for the ApiVersion to be widely available.

1.0.0rc2 (2017-05-02)

  • Add Managed Applications client (preview)
