Summary Course summary including Exam Tips and Tricks



You should memorize the command-line options and parameters for deploying an ARM template in PowerShell and the Azure CLI. After creating a resource group via the New-AzureRmResourceGroup cmdlet, you can deploy a preconfigured ARM template named storage.json for example by using the New-AzureRmResourceGroupDeployment cmdlet. In the first example I’m referencing a TemplateFile and TemplateParameterFile from my local computer. In the second example I’m referencing a template from an external source such as GitHub. You can also perform syntax validation by using the Test-AzureRmResourceGroupDeployment command.

Here are the Azure CLI equivalent commands we saw in the previous slide. Just note that this is Azure CLI 2.0 syntax and the exam may use a slightly older syntax which uses the full word “azure” instead of simply “az”. Other than that you should be good to go for the exam.
