The Remove-AzureSubscription cmdlet deletes an Azure subscription from your subscription data file so Windows PowerShell can't find it. This cmdlet does not delete the subscription from Microsoft Azure, or change the actual subscription in any way.

This topic describes the cmdlet in the 0.8.1 version of the Microsoft Azure PowerShell module. To find out the version of the module you're using, from the Azure PowerShell console, type (get-module azure).version.

Examples

Example 1: Delete a subscription

This command deletes the "Test" subscription from the default subscription data file.

C:\PS> Remove-AzureSubscription -SubscriptionName Test

Confirm
Are you sure you want to perform this action?
[Y] Yes  [A] Yes to All  [N] No  [L] No to All  [S] Suspend  [?] Help (default is "Y"):

Example 2: Delete from an alternate subscription data file

This command deletes the Test subscription from the MySubscriptions.xml subscription data file. The command uses the Force parameter to suppress the confirmation prompt.

C:\PS> Remove-AzureSubscription -SubscriptionName Test -SubscriptionDataFile C:\Subs\MySubscriptions.xml -Force

Example 3: Delete a subscription in a script

This command uses the Remove-AzureSubscription command in an If statement. It uses the PassThru parameter, which returns a Boolean value, to determine whether the script block in the If statement is executed.

C:\PS> ...if (Remove-AzureSubscription -SubscriptionName Test -PassThru) {...}
