  • All the management plane azure-arm-* sdks and most of the data plane azure-* sdks, along with the rollup package azure in this repository, will be deprecated in July, 2019. They will be replaced by JS sdks in azure-sdk-for-js.
  • The packages in azure-sdk-for-js are isomorphic (can be run in the browser and on the server (node.js)) with accurate TypeScript type definitions.
  • They will be actively supported moving forward.
  • You will find any equivalent JS package in @azure org on npm for the existing node sdk package. For example: azure-arm-compute node sdk's equivalent JS sdk is @azure/arm-compute.
  • All the management plane sdks for the V1 Azure API (Azure Service Management) azure-asm-* will still be maintained from this repository. We would expect customers using these packages to move to Azure Resource Manager API packages at the earliest.

NOTE: Apart from the noticable changes in require/import statements, we have tried our level best to make lesser breaking changes in the API calls.


You can find more information on migrating your scripts from node sdk to JS sdk over here.

Azure SDK for Node.js

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.

Component Build Status
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

Note: You can install all the packages in this SDK by using npm install azure. This will include helper modules (ms-rest-azure) as well as all of the individual modules. This organization method also allows for submodules (and peer dependent modules) to always be in sync with each other.

Supported services

This SDK has support for:

  • Azure services (packages with the naming convention of azure-<servicename>).
  • ARM services (packages with the naming convention of azure-arm-*)
  • Legacy ASM services (packages with the naming convention of azure-asm-*)


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.
