Azure CLI Day 46 – sql server list

bash-azure

In my previous post (http://thinkfirstcodelater.com/blog/?p=3455) I showed you how to use the Windows Azure cross platform command line tools to create a SQL database server. In this post I’ll show you how to use the tools to list your SQL database servers.

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 sql server list -h

The azure sql server list command is the command to use to list your SQL database servers. Enter the following into your CLI:

azure sql server list

If you would like to see some additional information you can use the —json parameter by entering the following into your CLI:

azure sql server list —json

That’s it for now. In my next post I’ll show you how to get details for a specific SQL database server.

Did you know you can try Windows Azure for free for 30 days? Just go to http://aka.ms/thecloud and sign up.
