Microsoft Azure Storage Management Client Library for Python

Project description

Microsoft Azure SDK for Python

This is the Microsoft Azure Storage 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 Storage Management on

Release History

2.0.0rc1 (2018-05-11)


  • Add blob containers operations, immutability policy
  • Add usage.list_by_location
  • Client now supports Azure profiles.
  • Client class can be used as a context manager to keep the underlying HTTP session open for performance

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.
