Azure Storage PowerShell v.1.7 – Hotfix to v1.4 breaking changes

Posted on 30 august, 2016

Program Manager, Azure Storage

Breaking changes were introduced in Azure PowerShell v1.4. These breaking changes are present in Azure PowerShell versions 1.4-1.6 and versions 2.0 and later. The following Azure Storage cmdlets were impacted:

  • Get-AzureRmStorageAccountKey: Accessing keys
  • New-AzureRmStorageAccountKey: Accessing keys
  • New-AzureRmStorageAccount: Specifying account type and endpoints
  • Get-AzureRmStorageAccount: Specifying account type and endpoints
  • Set-AzureRmStorageAccount: Specifying account type and endpoints

To minimize impact to cmdlets, we are releasing Azure PowerShell v1.7 - a hotfix that addresses all of the breaking changes with the exception of specifying the Endpoint properties for New-AzureRmStorageAccount, Get-AzureRmStorageAccount, and Set-AzureRmStorageAccount. This means no code change will be required by customers where the hotfix is applicable. This hotfix will not be present in Azure PowerShell versions 2.0 and later. Please plan to update the above cmdlets when you update to Azure PowerShell v2.0.

Below, you’ll find examples for how the above cmdlets work for different versions of Azure PowerShell and the action required:

Accessing keys with Get-AzureRmStorageAccountKey and New-AzureRmStorageAccountKey

V1.3.2 and earlier:

$key = (Get-AzureRmStorageAccountKey -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).Key1

$key = (Get-AzureRmStorageAccountKey -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).Key2

$key = (New-AzureRmStorageAccountKey -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname -KeyName $keyname).StorageAccountKeys.Key1

$key = (New-AzureRmStorageAccountKey -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname -KeyName $keyname).StorageAccountKeys.Key2

V1.4-V1.6 and V2.0 and later:

The cmdlet now returns a list of keys, rather than an object with properties for each key.

# Replaces Key1
$key = (Get-AzureRmStorageAccountKey -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname)[0].Value

# Replaces Key2
$key = (Get-AzureRmStorageAccountKey -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname)[1].Value

# Replaces Key1
$key = (New-AzureRmStorageAccountKey -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname -KeyName $keyname).Keys[0].Value

# Replaces Key2
$key = (New-AzureRmStorageAccountKey -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname -KeyName $keyname).Keys[1].Value

V1.7 (Hotfix):

Both methods work.

$key = (Get-AzureRmStorageAccountKey -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).Key1

$key = (Get-AzureRmStorageAccountKey -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname)[0].Value

$key = (New-AzureRmStorageAccountKey -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname -KeyName $keyname).StorageAccountKeys.Key1

$key = (New-AzureRmStorageAccountKey -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname -KeyName $keyname).Keys[0].Value

Specifying account type in New-AzureRmStorageAccount, Get-AzureRmStorageAccount, and Set-AzureRmStorageAccount

V1.3.2 and earlier:

$AccountType = (Get-AzureRmStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).AccountType

$AccountType = (New-AzureRmStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).AccountType

$AccountType = (Set-AzureRmStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).AccountType

V1.4-V1.6 and V2.0 and later:

AccountType field in output of this cmdlet is renamed to Sku.Name.

$AccountType = (Get-AzureRmStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).Sku.Name

$AccountType = (New-AzureRmStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).Sku.Name

$AccountType = (Set-AzureRmStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).Sku.Name

V1.7 (Hotfix):

Both methods work.

$AccountType = (Get-AzureRmStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).AccountType

$AccountType = (New-AzureRmStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).AccountType

$AccountType = (Set-AzureRmStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).AccountType

$AccountType = (Get-AzureRmStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).Sku.Name

$AccountType = (New-AzureRmStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).Sku.Name

$AccountType = (Set-AzureRmStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).Sku.Name

Specifying Endpoints in New-AzureRmStorageAccount, Get-AzureRmStorageAccount, and Set-AzureRmStorageAccount

V1.3.2 and earlier:

$blobEndpoint = (Get-AzureRmStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).PrimaryEndpoints.Blob.AbsolutePath

$blobEndpoint = (New-AzureRmStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).PrimaryEndpoints.Blob.AbsolutePath

$blobEndpoint = (Set-AzureRmStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).PrimaryEndpoints.Blob.AbsolutePath

V1.4-V1.6 and V2.0 and later:

Output type for PrimaryEndpoints/Secondary endpoints blob/table/queue/file changed from Uri to String.

$blobEndpoint = (Get-AzureRmStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).PrimaryEndpoints.Blob

$blobEndpoint = (New-AzureRmStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).PrimaryEndpoints.Blob

$blobEndpoint = (Set-AzureRmStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).PrimaryEndpoints.Blob

Note: The ToString() method for these cmdlets will continue to work. For example:

$blobEndpoint = (Get-AzureRmStorageAccount -ResourceGroupName $groupname -Name $accountname).PrimaryEndpoints.Blob.ToString()

V1.7 (Hotfix):

No hotfix was provided for this breaking change. The return value’s endpoints will have to continue to be string, as changing these back to Uri would introduce an additional break.
