Install Azure CLI 2.0 with zypper

If you are running a distribution that comes with zypper, such as openSUSE or SLES, there is a package available for the Azure CLI. This package has been tested with openSUSE 42.2 and SLES 12 SP 2.

Note

To install the CLI, your distribution must have packages with the following software:

Install

  1. Install curl:

    sudo zypper install -y curl
    
  2. Import the Microsoft repository key:

    sudo rpm --import https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc
    
  3. Create local azure-cli repository information:

    sudo zypper addrepo --name 'Azure CLI' --check https://packages.microsoft.com/yumrepos/azure-cli azure-cli
    
  4. Update the zypper package index and install:

    sudo zypper install --from azure-cli -y azure-cli
    

You can then run the Azure CLI with the az command. To log in, run the az login command.

az login

To learn more about different login methods, see Log in with Azure CLI 2.0.

Update

You can update the package with the zypper update command.

sudo zypper refresh
sudo zypper update azure-cli

Uninstall

If you decide to uninstall the Azure CLI, we're sorry to see you go. Before you uninstall, use the az feedback command to give some information about why you chose to uninstall and how the CLI could be improved. Our goal is to make the Azure CLI bug-free and user-friendly. If you encountered a bug, we'd appreciate it if you file a GitHub issue.

  1. Remove the package from your system.

    sudo zypper remove -y azure-cli
    
  2. If you do not plan to reinstall the CLI, remove the repository information.

    sudo zypper removerepo azure-cli
    
  3. If you removed the repository information, also remove the Microsoft GPG signature key.

    MSFT_KEY=`rpm -qa gpg-pubkey /* --qf "%{version}-%{release} %{summary}\n" | grep Microsoft | awk '{print $1}'`
    sudo rpm -e --allmatches gpg-pubkey-$MSFT_KEY
