Update Azure CLI

Not one of my most useful blogs, more like a reference in my library on how to update the Azure command (and a rant at the end). Documentation and the latest version available can be found at the Azure cli installation documentation.

Check current installed version

az –version

In my case, azure-cli is at version 2.0.60. Latest version available at that was 2.0.72. Time to update. To update azure-cli, use brew to update it.

brew update && brew upgrade azure-cli


az –version

Update completed successfully, and azure-cli is now at the latest version (2.0.72). Btw: to install azure-cli, it is almost the same command: brew install.

brew update && brew install azure-cli

(As promised, here is now the rant: let’s see how many decades more it takes for SAP to ship sapcar the same way).

I think you need:

az –version

to get the version correctly.

    WordPress transformed the two – – into one. It’s not even a single – any longer: the two — got transformed into a wider dash
