Azure CLI Day 35 – mobile job list


In my previous post ( I showed you how to use the Windows Azure cross platform command line tools to create a scheduled job for a Windows Azure Mobile Service. In this post I’ll show you how to list the scheduled jobs associated with a 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 job list -h

The azure mobile job list command is used to list the jobs associated with a Windows Azure Mobile Service. For this command you simply need to provide the name of the mobile service that contains the list of jobs you want to see. Type the following into your CLI, substituting where appropriate:

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

I entered the following:

azure mobile job list ‘zumo-00005′

Alternatively, you could add the –json option to see the results in json format:

That’s it. Pretty simple. In the next post we’ll look at how to start working with the script associated with the scheduled job.
