Get-AzureRmNetworkWatcherTopology

Gets a network level view of resources and their relationships in a resource group.

Important

Because Az PowerShell modules now have all the capabilities of AzureRM PowerShell modules and more, we'll retire AzureRM PowerShell modules on 29 February 2024.

To avoid service interruptions, update your scripts that use AzureRM PowerShell modules to use Az PowerShell modules by 29 February 2024. To automatically update your scripts, follow the quickstart guide.

Syntax

Get-AzureRmNetworkWatcherTopology
   -NetworkWatcher <PSNetworkWatcher>
   -TargetResourceGroupName <String>
   [-DefaultProfile <IAzureContextContainer>]
   [<CommonParameters>]
Get-AzureRmNetworkWatcherTopology
   -NetworkWatcherName <String>
   -ResourceGroupName <String>
   -TargetResourceGroupName <String>
   [-DefaultProfile <IAzureContextContainer>]
   [<CommonParameters>]
Get-AzureRmNetworkWatcherTopology

Description

The Get-AzureRmNetworkWatcherTopology cmdlet a network level view of resources and their relationships in a resource group. Note: If resources from multiple regions reside in the resource group, only the resources in the same region as the Network Watcher will be included in the JSON output.

Examples

Example 1: Get an Azure Topology

$networkWatcher = Get-AzureRmNetworkWatcher -Name NetworkWatcher_westcentralus -ResourceGroup NetworkWatcherRG 
Get-AzureRmNetworkWatcherTopology -NetworkWatcher $networkWatcher -ResourceGroupName testresourcegroup
