Azure CLI Day 59 – storage account show

bash-azure

In my previous post (http://thinkfirstcodelater.com/blog/?p=3606) I showed you how to use the Windows Azure cross platform command line tools to list storage accounts associated with a Windows Azure subscription. In this post I’ll show you how to use these tools to view the details for a specific storage account.

Once again, just a reminder that I’m using the command line tools on a MacBook Air with OSX (Mavericks) installed, and I’m using Google Chrome as my default browser. However, the experience should be identical on Windows and Linux as well.

Open an instance of your command line (Terminal, Bash, Command Prompt, etc.) and type the following:

azure storage account show -h

The azure storage account show command is the command to use to show the details of a specific storage account associated with a Windows Azure subscription. the only parameter you need to provide is the name name of the storage account. To view the details of one of your storage accounts, enter the following into you CLI, substituting where appropriate:

azure storage account show ‘[YOUR STORAGE ACCOUNT NAME]‘

I entered the following:

azure storage account show ‘adgrocstorage75′

The details displayed for the storage account include the following properties:

  • endpoints
  • location
  • label
  • status
  • geoReplicationEnabled
  • geoPrimaryRegion

That’s it for now. In my next post I’ll show you how to update the properties of a storage account using the Windows Azure cross platform command line tools.
