Gutha Vamsi Krishna


The Azure Resouce Group is a logical group of resources that includes virtual machines, databases, web applications, and storage accounts.

This resource group stores metadata about the resources that it contains. The location of the metadata is specified in the “location” part of the resource.

Let’s have a look at the following steps to get Azure resources from the resource group.

Step 1

Install the latest version of PowerShell. PowerShell 7.0.6 LTS, PowerShell 7.1.3, or higher is recommended by Microsoft.

Check the PowerShell version with the following command:

Step 2

Next, set the Execution Policy:

Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned -Scope CurrentUser

We can check the execution policy with the following command:

Get-ExecutionPolicy -List

This yields the description below.

Step 3

Install the Az module using this command:

Install-Module -Name Az -Scope CurrentUser -Repository PSGallery -Force

Step 4
