How to run the Azure CLI in a Docker container

You can use Docker to run a standalone Linux container with the Azure CLI pre-installed. Docker gets you started quickly with an isolated environment to run the CLI in. The image can also be used as a base for your own deployments.

Start the Docker container with Azure CLI pre-installed

[!NOTE] The Azure CLI has migrated to Microsoft Container Registry. Existing tags on Docker Hub are still supported, but new releases will only be available as mcr.microsoft.com/azure-cli.

Open a command prompt and then start the Docker container with Azure CLI pre-installed using the following commmand.

docker run -it mcr.microsoft.com/azure-cli

[!NOTE] If you want to pick up the SSH keys from your user environment, use -v ${HOME}/.ssh:/root/.ssh to mount your SSH keys in the environment.

docker run -it -v ${HOME}/.ssh:/root/.ssh mcr.microsoft.com/azure-cli

The CLI is installed on the image as the az command in /usr/local/bin.

Run the Docker container with a specific version of the Azure CLI

Available versions can be found at Azure CLI release notes.

To run a specific version of the Azure CLI in the Docker container, use the following:

docker run -it mcr.microsoft.com/azure-cli:<version>

Update Docker image

Updating with Docker requires both pulling the new image and re-creating any existing containers. For this reason, you should try to avoid using a container that hosts the CLI as a data store.

Update your local image with docker pull.

docker pull mcr.microsoft.com/azure-cli

Uninstall Docker image

[!INCLUDE uninstall-boilerplate.md]

After halting any containers running the CLI image, remove it.

docker rmi mcr.microsoft.com/azure-cli

Next Steps
