CLI example: Add an application to an Azure Batch account
This script demonstrates how to add an application for use with an Azure Batch pool or task. To set up an application to add to your Batch account, package your executable, together with any dependencies, into a zip file.
Use Azure Cloud Shell
Azure hosts Azure Cloud Shell, an interactive shell environment that you can use through your browser. Cloud Shell lets you use either
PowerShell to work with Azure services. You can use the Cloud Shell pre-installed commands to run the code in this article without having to install anything on your local environment.
To launch Azure Cloud Shell:
|Select Try It in the upper-right corner of a code block. Selecting Try It doesn't automatically copy the code to Cloud Shell.|
|Go to https://shell.azure.com or select the Launch Cloud Shell button to open Cloud Shell in your browser.|
|Select the Cloud Shell button on the top-right menu bar in the Azure portal.|
To run the code in this article in Azure Cloud Shell:
Launch Cloud Shell.
Select the Copy button on a code block to copy the code.
Paste the code into the Cloud Shell session with Ctrl+Shift+V on Windows and Linux, or Cmd+Shift+V on macOS.
Press Enter to run the code.
If you choose to install and use the CLI locally, this article requires that you are running the Azure CLI version 2.0.20 or later. Run
az --version to find the version. If you need to install or upgrade, see Install Azure CLI.
