In this Microsoft Azure blog post we are going to delete a Virtual Machine running using the Azure CLI command line utility.
The Azure CLI command-line utility allows us to manage most of the Azure services programmatically without using the portal.
To get started, login to Azure and authenticate using the following command.
az login --use-device-code
Set your your Azure subscription if you have more than one.
az account set --subscription subscription-name
In the example below, I’m deleting a Virtual machine called mailtrainvm located inside a resource group called mailtran.
The command will not ask for confirmation and force the delete the virtual machine.
az vm delete --resource-group mailtrain --name mailtrainvm --yes --force-deletion yes
