Azure Bicep Getting Started

On previous post we cover the general introduction to Azure Bicep.


You can install bicep by using extension for az cli

az bicep install

if you do not have az cli, it can be installed from PowerShell using Administrative permission

$ProgressPreference = 'SilentlyContinue'; Invoke-WebRequest -Uri https://aka.ms/installazurecliwindows -OutFile .\AzureCLI.msi; Start-Process msiexec.exe -Wait -ArgumentList '/I AzureCLI.msi /quiet'; rm .\AzureCLI.msi

First bicep file

After successful installation installation of az bicep, let create our first “bicep” file.

@description('Storage Account type')
param storageAccountType string = 'Standard_LRS'

@description('Location for the storage account.')
param location string = resourceGroup().location

@description('The name of the Storage Account')
param storageAccountName string = 'store${uniqueString(resourceGroup().id)}'

resource sa 'Microsoft.Storage/storageAccounts@2021-06-01' = {
  name: storageAccountName
  location: location
  sku: {
    name: storageAccountType
  kind: 'StorageV2'
  properties: {}

output storageAccountName string = storageAccountName
output storageAccountId string = sa.id

After creating bicep file, let create Resource Group in Europe west location

az group create -l westeurope -n bicep-rg
az deployment group create -f ./main.bicep -g bicep-rg

will create deployment group using file “main.bicep” in resource group “bicep-rg” and we suppose to se result in Azure Portal
