Update your Azure CLI with Choco

I use Azure CLI from time to time. So, it´s a good idea to update that module...

For example, I use Azure CLI for renewing SPN´s a described at How to create or renew Service Principal Names in Azure Active Directory.

When I checked the latest version with az --version, I saw my outdated version: "You have 52 updates available. Consider updating your CLI installation." So, the best method is to use Chocolatey - The package manager for Windows in an elevated command prompt as described at Azure CLI. To make it short: Simply run choco upgrade azure-cli.


The current version of Azure CLI is 2.0.67. "Downloading azure-cli from '' (46.8 MB)". By default, you can see the choco log files at C:\ProgramData\chocolatey\logs\chocolatey.log.

Happy upgrading!
