Announcing the new Azure SDK for JavaScript

We are excited to announce that we are building a new Azure SDK for JavaScript in a new GitHub repo located here:
These packages ship with TypeScript type definitions and have both Node.js and Browser support.

Below are key points regarding deprecation of the packages in this repo and migration to the new packages

  • All of the management plane SDKs (azure-arm-*) and all of the data plane SDKs (azure-*), along with the rollup package azure in this repository, have been deprecated as of March 2023. They have been replaced by the Azure SDK for JavaScript packages.
  • All of the management plane SDKs for the V1 Azure API (Azure Service Management) azure-asm-* will continue to be maintained from the Azure SDK for Node.js repository. We expect customers using these packages to move to Azure Resource Manager API packages at their earliest convenience.
  • To migrate your code from Azure SDK for Node.js to the new Azure SDK for JavaScript, first identify the counterparts in the new SDK and then read our Migration from Node.js packages (azure-sdk-for-node) to JavaScript packages (azure-sdk-for-js) article.

Azure SDK for Node.js

NOTE: This repo is deprecated. All future JavaScript SDKs have moved to Azure SDK for JavaScript. Please see the note above for more information.

This project provides Node.js packages that makes it easy to consume and manage Microsoft Azure Services.

If you are new to Azure and Node.js, see Azure for Node.js developers.

For documentation specific to the Azure SDK Node.js packages, see the Azure Node SDK Reference.

Management Libraries Build Status
Client Libraries Build Status


To install an individual Node.js package, look up the package name and use npm to install it into your project.

For example to install the Storage package, you would run:

$ npm install azure-storage

Supported services

This SDK has support for:

  • Azure services
    • These are packages with the naming convention of azure-<servicename>.
    • In the new Azure SDK for JS, the counterparts will have the naming convention of @azure/<servicename>
  • ARM services
    • These are packages with the naming convention of azure-arm-*
    • In the new Azure SDK for JS, the counterparts will have the naming convention of @azure/arm-*
  • Legacy ASM services
    • These are packages with the naming convention of azure-asm-*
    • In the new Azure SDK for JS, there are no counterparts to these packages. Please use the ARM services via packages with the naming convention of @azure/arm-*
  • The roll up package azure
    • Installing this package will result in installing all the packages in this SDK including the helper modules like ms-rest-azure.
    • In the new Azure SDK for JS, there is no counterpart to this. You are encouraged to install only the packages you need.


Documentation of the supported SDKs can be found at two places:

  • - This website primarily provides SDK documentation for
    • ASM based services (azure-asm-*)
    • Older data plane SDKs like azure-sb, azure-scheduler, azure-storage-legacy, azure-monitoring, etc.
    • Runtime SDKs like ms-rest, ms-rest-azure, azure-common
  • - This website primarily provides SDK documentation for
    • ARM based services (azure-arm-*)
    • Newer data plane SDKs like azure-batch, azure-graph, etc.


There are three ways to authenticate against Azure while using the management plane (azure-arm-*) SDKs and the azure-graph SDK, use this guide to determine which method to use.

Azure service modules

Package Description Documentation
azure-gallery Access to the Azure Marketplace azure-gallery package
azure-graph Access to Azure Active Directory Azure Active Directory modules
azure-keyvault Integrate with Key Vault Azure Key Vault modules
azure-monitoring Azure Monitoring azure-monitoring package
azure-scheduler Create jobs with Azure Scheduler Azure Scheduler modules
azure-servicefabric Azure Service Fabric Azure Service Fabric modules
azure-sb Service Bus Azure Service Bus modules
azure-storage Storage Azure Storage modules
azure-batch Azure Batch processing azure-batch package

Note: If there is a Microsoft Azure service that doesn't have a package yet, open an issue so that we may prioritize it in the backlog.
