Azure SDK for Go


This repository is for active development of the Azure SDK for Go. For consumers of the SDK you can follow the links below to visit the documentation you are interested in

Getting Started

To get started with a module, see the file located in the module's project folder. You can find these module folders grouped by service in the /sdk directory.

NOTE: Go 1.18 or later is required. You could download and install the latest version of Go from here. It will replace the existing Go on your machine. If you want to install multiple Go versions on the same machine, you could refer this doc.

Packages available

Each service can have both 'client' and 'management' modules. 'Client' modules are used to consume the service, whereas 'management' modules are used to configure and manage the service.

Client modules

Our client modules follow the Azure Go SDK guidelines. These modules allow you to use, consume, and interact with existing resources, for example, uploading a blob. They also share a number of core functionalities including retries, logging, transport protocols, authentication protocols, etc. that can be found in the azcore module.

You can find the most up-to-date list of new modules on our latest page.

NOTE: If you need to ensure your code is ready for production use one of the stable, non-beta modules.

Management modules

Similar to our client modules, the management modules follow the Azure Go SDK guidelines. All management modules are available at sdk/resourcemanager. These modules provide a number of core capabilities that are shared amongst all Azure SDKs, including the intuitive Azure Identity module, an HTTP Pipeline with custom policies, error-handling, distributed tracing, and much more.

To get started, please follow the quickstart guide here. To see the benefits of migrating and how to migrate to the new modules, please visit the migration guide.

You can find the most up to date list of all of the new packages on our page

NOTE: If you need to ensure your code is ready for production use one of the stable, non-beta modules. Also, if you are experiencing authentication issues with the management modules after upgrading certain packages, it's possible that you upgraded to the new versions of SDK without changing the authentication code. Please refer to the migration guide for proper instructions.


More code samples for using the management modules for Go SDK can be found in the following locations

Historical releases

Note that the latest modules from Microsoft are grouped by service in the /sdk directory. If you're using packages with prefix,,, please consider migrating to the latest modules. You can find a mapping table from these historical releases to their equivalent here.
