Create an Azure Cosmos Table API account and table using Azure CLI
Use Azure Cloud Shell
Azure hosts Azure Cloud Shell, an interactive shell environment that you can use through your browser. You can use either Bash or PowerShell with Cloud Shell to work with Azure services. You can use the Cloud Shell preinstalled commands to run the code in this article without having to install anything on your local environment.
To start 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 menu bar at the upper right in the Azure portal.|
To run the code in this article in Azure Cloud Shell:
Start Cloud Shell.
Select the Copy button on a code block to copy the code.
Paste the code into the Cloud Shell session by selecting Ctrl+Shift+V on Windows and Linux or by selecting Cmd+Shift+V on macOS.
Select Enter to run the code.
If you choose to install and use the CLI locally, this topic requires that you are running the Azure CLI version 2.9.1 or later. Run
az --version to find the version. If you need to install or upgrade, see Install Azure CLI.

Clean up deployment
After the script sample has been run, the following command can be used to remove the resource group and all resources associated with it.
az group delete --name $resourceGroupName
This script uses the following commands. Each command in the table links to command specific documentation.
|az group create||Creates a resource group in which all resources are stored.|
|az cosmosdb create||Creates an Azure Cosmos DB account.|
|az cosmosdb table create||Creates an Azure Cosmos Table API table.|
|az group delete||Deletes a resource group including all nested resources.|
For more information on the Azure Cosmos DB CLI, see Azure Cosmos DB CLI documentation.
All Azure Cosmos DB CLI script samples can be found in the Azure Cosmos DB CLI GitHub Repository.
