NOTE: You may also want to consider using the Azure CLI, this application is written by the Azure team and has many other integrations with Azure. If click here you'll see deeper examples of using the Chef extension and Azure.
Be sure you are running the latest version of Chef DK, which can be installed via:
This plugin is distributed as a Ruby Gem. To install it, run:
chef gem install knife-azure
Depending on your system's configuration, you may need to run this command with root/administrator privileges.
knife-azure 1.6.0 onwards supports Azure Resource Manager (preferred). You can easily switch between:
- Resource manager: commands using the Azure Resource Manager API
- Service management: commands using the Azure service management API
They are not designed to work together. Commands starting with
knife azurerm use ARM mode, while commands starting with
knife azure use ASM mode.
