Looping through your Azure subscriptions using PowerShell

Share this:

When working with multiple subscriptions in Azure, more than often we will have to loop through the available subscriptions to list or change resources.

Solution


The solution is simple, basically we use a variable to receive all existent subscriptions (make sure that you are connected into your Azure), and then we loop every subscription and inside of that ForEach we can run our cmdlets.

Here is a piece of code that does exactly that. If you want help to connect in your azure, you can use Connect-AzureRMAccount.

$subscriptions=Get-AzureRMSubscription

ForEach ($vsub in $subscriptions){
Select-AzureRmSubscription $vsub.SubscriptionID

Write-Host

Write-Host “Working on “ $vsub

Write-Host

Get-AzureRmVM | Select Name,REsourceGroupName,Location

}
