Cloud Custodian - Azure Support

Project description

Cloud Custodian - Azure Support

This a plugin to Cloud Custodian that adds Azure support.

Install Cloud Custodian and Azure Plugin

The Azure provider must be installed as a separate package in addition to c7n.

$ git clone
$ virtualenv custodian
$ source custodian/bin/activate
(custodian) $ pip install -e cloud-custodian/.
(custodian) $ pip install -e cloud-custodian/tools/c7n_azure/.

Write your first policy

A policy specifies the following items:

  • The type of resource to run the policy against
  • Filters to narrow down the set of resources
  • Actions to take on the filtered set of resources

For this tutorial we will add a tag to all virtual machines with the name "Hello" and the value "World".

Create a file named custodian.yml with this content:

    - name: my-first-policy
      description: |
        Adds a tag to all virtual machines
      resource: azure.vm
        - type: tag
          tag: Hello
          value: World

Run your policy

First, choose one of the supported authentication mechanisms and either log in to Azure CLI or set environment variables as documented in Authentication.

custodian run --output-dir=. custodian.yml

If successful, you should see output similar to the following on the command line

2016-12-20 08:35:06,133: custodian.policy:INFO Running policy my-first-policy resource: azure.vm
2016-12-20 08:35:07,514: custodian.policy:INFO policy: my-first-policy resource:azure.vm has count:1 time:1.38
2016-12-20 08:35:08,188: custodian.policy:INFO policy: my-first-policy action: tag: 1 execution_time: 0.67

You should also find a new my-first-policy directory with a log and other files (subsequent runs will append to the log by default rather than overwriting it).
