1 minute readExtensibilityDeveloper productivity

The Azure command-line interface (Azure CLI) is a set of commands used to create and manage Azure resources. The Azure CLI is available across Azure services and is designed to get you working quickly with Azure, with an emphasis on automation.

The Azure CLI plugin allows you to run Azure CLI commands as part of your CloudBees CD/RO environment, and can be used to create and manage:

  • Virtual machines, nets, and subnets

  • Network security groups (NSGs)

  • Databases

  • SQL and NoSQL actions

Using the Azure CLI plugin, you can develop tasks for a variety of objectives, such as machine learning, analytics, blockchains, containers, and more.

The Azure Services Platform plugin has been released to the community and is no longer supported. It has been replaced by the Azure CLI plugin.

Supported versions

  • 2.40.0

  • 2.41.0


  • Azure CLI must be installed on the agent machine.

  • This plugin uses an updated version of Perl, cb-perl shell (Perl v5.32), and requires CloudBees CD/RO agents version 10.3+ to work.
