Azure Stack

These tools are meant for use with Azure Stack Hub and Integrated Systems

master branch contains the tools compatible with AzureRm version of azure powershell. az branch contains the tools compatible with AzureRm version of azure powershell. We are not changing the default branch master to support Az considering that this would be a breaking change

Tools for using Azure and Azure Stack

To use these tools, obtain Azure Stack compatible Azure PowerShell module. Unless you've installed from other sources, one way to do it is to obtain from public package repositories as follows. Note that both of these could still be used to operate against Azure as well as Azure Stack, but may lack some of the latest Azure features.

To install supported version of azure powershell, please follow the instructions at

Obtain the tools by cloning the git repository. Switch to az branch for Az powershell, master is compatible with AzureRM powershell

Or download the tools with the instructions from the documentaion page
