Install Azure CLI 2.0 on Linux manually
If you do not have a package for the Azure CLI available on your distribution, you can always install the CLI manually by running an installation script.
It's strongly recommend that you use a package manager for the CLI. A package manager makes sure you always get the latest updates, and guarantees the stability of CLI components. Check and see if there is a package for your distribution before installing manually.
In order to install the CLI, you need the following software available on your system:
Install or update
Whether you are installing or updating the CLI, you need to perform a full installation. Once you have the prerequisites, you can
install the CLI by running
curl -L https://aka.ms/InstallAzureCli | bash
You can also download the script and run it locally instead. You may have to restart your shell in order for changes to take effect.
You can then run the Azure CLI with the
az command. To sign in, use az login command.
If the CLI can determine your default browser and has access to open it, it will do so and direct you immediately to a sign in page.
Otherwise, you need to open a browser page and follow the instructions on the command line to enter an authorization code after navigating to https://aka.ms/devicelogin in your browser.
Sign in with your account credentials in the browser.
To learn more about different authentication methods, see Sign in with Azure CLI 2.0.
