Description

The Invoke-AzResourceAction cmdlet invokes an action on a specified Azure resource. To get a list of supported actions, use the Azure Resource Explorer tool.

Examples

Example 1: Invoke starting a VM with ResourceId

PS C:\>Invoke-AzResourceAction -ResourceId /subscriptions/{subId}/resourceGroups/{rg}/providers/Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/testVM -Action start

Confirm
Are you sure you want to invoke the 'start' action on the following resource: /subscriptions/{subId}/resourceGroups/testGroup/providers/Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/testVM
[Y] Yes  [N] No  [S] Suspend  [?] Help (default is "Y"): y

This command starts the Virtual Machine with {ResourceId}.

Example 2: Invoke poweroffing a VM with ResourceName

PS C:\>Invoke-AzResourceAction -ResourceGroupName testGroup -ResourceName testVM -ResourceType Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/ -Action Poweroff -Force

This command stops the Virtual Machine with {ResourceId}. The command specifies the Force parameter, therefore, it does not prompt you for confirmation.

Example 3: Invoke registering a resource provider with ResourceId

PS C:\>Invoke-AzResourceAction -ResourceId /subscriptions/{subId}/providers/Microsoft.Network -action register -Force

id                : /subscriptions/{subId}/providers/Microsoft.Network
namespace         : Microsoft.Network
authorizations    : {…}
resourceTypes     : {@{resourceType=virtualNetworks; locations=System.Object[]; apiVersions=System.Object[]},
                    @{resourceType=publicIPAddresses; locations=System.Object[]; apiVersions=System.Object[]},
                    @{resourceType=networkInterfaces; locations=System.Object[]; apiVersions=System.Object[]},
                    @{resourceType=privateEndpoints; locations=System.Object[]; apiVersions=System.Object[]}…}
registrationState : Registered

This command registers a resource provider "Microsoft.Network". The command specifies the Force parameter, therefore, it does not prompt you for confirmation.
