Azure Cloud Shell: New CLI tools added and font-size selection

Thursday, September 21, 2017

Microsoft routinely maintains and updates Azure Cloud Shell, which includes commonly used CLI tools—Linux shell interpreters, Azure tools, text editors, source control, build tools, container tools, database tools, and more.

Over the last few months, we added the following CLI tools to the Bash environment:

  • AzCopy: Copy data to and from Microsoft Azure Blob, File, and Table storage by using simple commands with optimal performance.
  • Sqlcmd utility: Enter Transact-SQL statements, system procedures, and script files at the command line.
  • Batch Shipyard: Provision and execute batch processing and HPC Docker workloads on Azure Batch compute pools.
  • Helm: Manage Kubernetes charts, which are packages of pre-configured Kubernetes resources.

Additionally, Cloud Shell now includes support for Terraform and Cloud Foundry with the addition of the following CLI tools:

Last, we recently added font-size selection to the Cloud Shell toolbar in the Azure portal.
