To use the "run .az" command, you need to do the following steps:



  • Create an alias for the "run .az" command in your shell configuration file. For example, if you are using Bash, you can add this line to your .bashrc file: alias run.az='az'. You can use any name you want for the alias, as long as it does not conflict with any existing commands or keywords.



  • Reload your shell configuration file or open a new terminal session to apply the changes. For example, if you are using Bash, you can run this command: source /.bashrc.



  • Run any Azure CLI command by typing "run .az" followed by the command name and parameters. For example, if you want to list all the resource groups in your subscription, you can run this command: run .az group list.



Here are some examples of how to use the "run .az" command with different parameters and options:



  • To create a new resource group named "my-rg" in the "eastus" region, you can run this command: run .az group create --name my-rg --location eastus.



  • To show the details of a virtual machine named "my-vm" in the "my-rg" resource group, you can run this command: run .az vm show --name my-vm --resource-group my-rg.



  • To delete a storage account named "mystorage" in the "my-rg" resource group, you can run this command: run .az storage account delete --name mystorage --resource-group my-rg.



  • To list all the web apps in your subscription, you can run this command: run .az webapp list.



  • To update the app settings of a web app named "my-webapp" in the "my-rg" resource group, you can run this command: run .az webapp config appsettings set --name my-webapp --resource-group my-rg --settings key1=value1 key2=value2.



  • To enable logging for a web app named "my-webapp" in the "my-rg" resource group, you can run this command: run .az webapp log config --name my-webapp --resource-group my-rg --application-logging true.



  • To tail the logs of a web app named "my-webapp" in the "my-rg" resource group, you can run this command: run .az webapp log tail --name my-webapp --resource-group my-rg.



You can also use tab completion, help, and feedback features with the "run .az" command. For example:



  • To see all the available commands and subcommands for a resource type, you can press TAB after typing "run .az" followed by the resource type name. For example, if you type "run .az vm", you can press TAB to see all the commands and subcommands for virtual machines.



  • To see all the available parameters and options for a command or subcommand, you can press TAB after typing "run .az" followed by the command or subcommand name.
