Manage Azure resources and resource groups with Ruby

On this page

Run this sample

  1. If you don't already have it, install Ruby and the Ruby DevKit.

  2. If you don't have bundler, install it.

    gem install bundler
  3. Clone the repository.

    git clone
  4. Install the dependencies using bundle.

    cd media-services-ruby-manage-services
    bundle install
  5. Create an Azure service principal either through Azure CLI, PowerShell or the portal.

  6. Set the following environment variables using the information from the service principle that you created.

    export AZURE_TENANT_ID={your tenant id}
    export AZURE_CLIENT_ID={your client id}
    export AZURE_CLIENT_SECRET={your client secret}
    export AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID={your subscription id}

    [AZURE.NOTE] On Windows, use set instead of export.

  7. Run the sample.

    bundle exec ruby example.rb

What is example.rb doing?

The sample walks you through several media service management operations. It starts by setting up ResourceManagementClient, StorageManagementClient, and MediaServiceManagementClient objects using your subscription and credentials.

# Create the Resource Manager Client with an Application (service principal) token provider
subscription_id = ENV['AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID'] || '11111111-1111-1111-1111-111111111111' # your Azure Subscription Id
provider =
credentials =

# resource client
resource_client =
resource_client.subscription_id = subscription_id

# storage client
storage_client =
storage_client.subscription_id = subscription_id

# media services client
media_services_client =
media_services_client.subscription_id = subscription_id

It registers the subscription for the "Microsoft.Media" namespace and creates a resource group and a storage account where the media services will be managed.

# Register subscription for 'Microsoft.Media' namespace
provider = resource_client.providers.register('Microsoft.Media')

# Create a resource group
resource_group_params = do |rg|
    rg.location = REGION

resource_group = resource_client.resource_groups.create_or_update(RESOURCE_GROUP_NAME, resource_group_params)

# Create a storage account
param = do |acc|
    acc.sku = do |sku| = Azure::ARM::Storage::Models::SkuName::StandardLRS
        sku.tier = Azure::ARM::Storage::Models::SkuTier::Standard
    acc.kind = Azure::ARM::Storage::Models::Kind::Storage
    acc.location = REGION
storage_account = storage_client.storage_accounts.create(RESOURCE_GROUP_NAME, STORAGE_ACC_NAME, param)

There are a couple of supporting functions (print_item and print_properties) that print a resource group and it's properties. With that set up, the sample lists all resource groups for your subscription, it performs these operations.

param =
param.location = REGION
param.tags = {
    :tag1 => 'tag1'
storage_acc = do |acc| =
    acc.is_primary = true
param.storage_accounts = [storage_acc]

media_service = media_services_client.media_service_operations.create(RESOURCE_GROUP_NAME, MEDIA_SERVICE_NAME, param)

media_service_collection = media_services_client.media_service_operations.list_by_resource_group(RESOURCE_GROUP_NAME)

media_services_client.media_service_operations.delete(RESOURCE_GROUP_NAME, MEDIA_SERVICE_NAME)
