Azure Batch CLI extensions will be retired on 30 September 2024

Published date: September 29, 2023

The Azure Batch CLI extensions override the “az batch” command in the Azure CLI to provide additional functionality. The purpose of this tool is to allow customers to try out proposed Azure Batch features and provide feedback to help shape the direction of the Azure Batch service. These extensions are public preview and will be retired. Customers can continue to use the Azure CLI for core “az batch” features excluding the Batch CLI extensions. 

From now until 30 September 2024, you can continue to use Azure Batch CLI extensions without disruption. After that, existing installations of the Azure Batch CLI extensions may continue to function for a period but will be unsupported and should be uninstalled using the command  `az extension remove --name azure-batch-cli-extensions`. New installations of the CLI extensions won't be possible.  

Required action 

Stop using Azure Batch CLI extensions by 30 September 2024.
