This guide will provide you with a reference to key PowerShell commands necessary for Azure administrators as well as required to pass the Azure Administrator certification exams (AZ-103 (AZ-104), AZ-300 (AZ-303), and AZ-301 (AZ-304) from Microsoft.

If you are completely new to PowerShell, we highly recommend you check out the Microsoft Azure PowerShell Overview which has a number of tutorials and guides for learning the basics. This guide is made up of several PowerShell commands which have been reference from the Microsoft documentation and other sources. Before running any of these commands in production, please be sure to test them out in an Azure test account. Some commands are destructive in nature (e.g. removing resource groups, tags etc.) and you need to make sure you fully understand the commands that you execute.

The guide is divided up into the following sections:

·        Downloading PowerShell and Installing Azure ARM Modules for PowerShell

·        Accounts and Subscriptions

·        Resource Groups

·        Governance

·        Storage

·        Virtual Machines
