Azure CLI Day 22 – mobile list


In my previous posts I showed you how to use the Windows Azure cross platform command line tools to do the following:

In this post I’ll show you how to use the cross platform command line tools to list all of your mobile services.

Once again, just a reminder that I’m using the command line tools on a MacBook Air with OSX (Mountain Lion) installed, and I’m using Google Chrome as my default browser. However, the experience should be identical on Windows and Linux as well.

Open an instance of your command line (Terminal, Bash, Command Prompt, etc.) and type the following:

azure mobile list -h

As you can see, this is a simple command that lists our your mobile services. Now enter the following into your CLI:

azure mobile list

The results here are pretty basic, just the name, state, and URL of your service. If you want to see a bit more detail use the –json option with the command as follows:

azure mobile list –json

This gives you a bit more detail about your service including the location its running, various keys, a list of tables (if any exist), etc. In my next post I’ll show you how to get additional information about your mobile services using the command line tools.
