Get-AzPolicyAlias

Get-AzPolicyAlias retrieves and outputs Azure provider resource types that have aliases defined and match the given parameter values. If no parameters are provided, all provider resource types that contain an alias will be output. The -ListAvailable switch modifies this behavior by listing all matching resource types including those without aliases.

Syntax

Get-AzPolicyAlias
   [-NamespaceMatch <String>]
   [-ResourceTypeMatch <String>]
   [-AliasMatch <String>]
   [-PathMatch <String>]
   [-ApiVersionMatch <String>]
   [-LocationMatch <String>]
   [-ListAvailable]
   [-ApiVersion <String>]
   [-Pre]
   [-DefaultProfile <IAzureContextContainer>]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Get-AzPolicyAlias cmdlet gets a listing of policy aliases. Policy aliases are used by Azure Policy to refer to resource type properties. Parameters are provided that limit items in the listing by matching various properties of the resource type or its aliases. A given match value matches if the target string contains it using case insensitive comparison.
