  • When we setup azure storage account for the application or backups to hold, if it is one time activity, we can use Portal to set up.

  • But if creating storage accounts is done repetitively then creating and configuring storage accounts from portal might not be sensible option

  • We need to create some kind of automated approach of creating and managing storage account.

  • To perform these kind of automated actions, Azure provides

    • Azure CLI
    • Azure PowerShell
    • Azure SDK
  • Installing/Configuring Azure CLI/PowerShell Refer Here

  • Setting up Visual Studio Code for Azure CLI Preview Preview
