Note

This article uses the Azure Az PowerShell module, which is the recommended PowerShell module for interacting with Azure. To get started with the Az PowerShell module, see Install Azure PowerShell. To learn how to migrate to the Az PowerShell module, see Migrate Azure PowerShell from AzureRM to Az.

This sample requires Azure PowerShell Az 5.4.0 or later. Run Get-Module -ListAvailable Az to see which versions are installed. If you need to install, see Install Azure PowerShell module.

Run Connect-AzAccount to sign in to Azure.

Sample script

Note

This sample demonstrates using a SQL (Core) API account. To use this sample for other APIs, copy the related properties and apply to your API specific script

# Reference: Az.CosmosDB | https://docs.microsoft.com/powershell/module/az.cosmosdb
# --------------------------------------------------
# Purpose
# Create Cosmos DB SQL API account with firewall
# --------------------------------------------------
Function New-RandomString{Param ([Int]$Length = 10) return $(-join ((97..122) + (48..57) | Get-Random -Count $Length | ForEach-Object {[char]$_}))}
# --------------------------------------------------
$uniqueId = New-RandomString -Length 7 # Random alphanumeric string for unique resource names
$apiKind = "Sql"
# --------------------------------------------------
# Variables - ***** SUBSTITUTE YOUR VALUES *****
$locations = @("East US", "West US") # Regions ordered by failover priority
$resourceGroupName = "myResourceGroup" # Resource Group must already exist
$accountName = "cosmos-$uniqueId" # Must be all lower case
$consistencyLevel = "Session"
$ipFilter = @("10.0.0.0/8", "11.0.1.0/24")
$allowAzureAccess = $true # Allow access to Azure networks and portal
# --------------------------------------------------

if ($true -eq $allowAzureAccess) {
    $ipFilter += "0.0.0.0"
}

Write-Host "Creating account $accountName"
$account = New-AzCosmosDBAccount -ResourceGroupName $resourceGroupName `
    -Location $locations -Name $accountName -ApiKind $apiKind `
    -DefaultConsistencyLevel $consistencyLevel -IpRangeFilter $ipFilter `
    -EnableAutomaticFailover:$true

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.

Remove-AzResourceGroup -ResourceGroupName "myResourceGroup"
