Azure CLI Day 28 – mobile table list


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

In this post I’ll show you how to list the tables associated with your Windows Azure Mobile Service.

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 table list -h

As you can see, this is a very straightforward command to use. All you need to do is provide the name of the Windows Azure Mobile Service you want to list tables for.

Next, entering the following into your CLI, substituting where appropriate:

azure mobile table list ‘[YOUR MOBILE SERVICE NAME]‘

In my case I entered the following:

azure mobile table list ‘zumo-00005′

Assuming your mobile service has some tables in it, you’ll see a list of your tables that includes the name of each table and the number of indexes and rows each table contains.

That’ it for now. In my next post I’ll show you how to get detailed information for a specific table in your Windows Azure Mobile Service.
