Azure dumb trick of the day, az cli one-liner to give a console list of subscriptions to choose from to set as your current default subscription: OLD_IFS=${IFS}; IFS=$'\n';select subscription in $(az account list --query "[].name" -o tsv) cancel; do if [ "$${subscription}" != "cancel" ]; then echo "Setting Subscription: ${subscription}"; az account set --subscription "${subscription}"; fi; break; done; IFS=${OLD_IFS}

This is handy - now to untrain my muscle memory from doing: az logout az account clear az login

Azure VMSS are very much not like AWS AutoScaling Groups — anyone here know if VMSS are supposed to be self-healing? i.e. if I define a VMSS with 3 VMs and power one off - I’m not seeing it be replaced. I think it has to do with poweroff … maybe I need to deallocate

hello, if you don’t want to upgrade yet to the 2.0.0 azurerm provider. one can prevent the upgrade by setting the following:


\# Configure the Azure Provider
provider "azurerm" {
  # whilst the `version` attribute is optional, we recommend pinning to a given version of the Provider
  version = "= 1.44.0"
}

In the last year I’ve seen the azurerm provider go up from 1.21 up to 2.00 and dealt with all the crazy changes therein. I highly recommend pinning the version of all providers for anything production level or that doesn’t change very often, regardless of the provider being used. Version pinning is soooo important in devops

Of course there are those that would say that one should actually know the differences between different azurerm terraform provider versions for interviews… https://www.whizlabs.com/blog/terraform-interview-questions/ <– WTF?
