In this blog post, we’ll walk you through how to save the output of an Azure CLI command to a variable and use it later in both Command Prompt and Bash.
When working with Azure CLI, you might need to save the output of a command to a variable and use it later in other commands. This is a common scenario when automating tasks or scripting.
For macOS and Linux (using Bash)
Run the Azure CLI command and save its output to a variable using the
$(command) syntax. Here’s an example of saving the resource ID of a storage account:
resourceId=$(az storage account show --name <your-storage-account-name> --resource-group <your-resource-group-name> --query id --output tsv)
Now, you can use the variable
$resourceId in other Azure CLI commands. For example:
az role assignment create --assignee <assignee> --role "<role-name>" --scope $resourceId
In all the examples, make sure to replace
<role-name> with appropriate values for your use case.
