Azure Rest APIs to get the SKU/Tier of Azure Sql Database

Atanu Gupta 141 Reputation points


My problem is that I need to fetch the Tiers and SKU details of Azure Sql Server database via Rest APIs only. I am able to get the same details by running the following powershell script

Get-AzSqlServerServiceObjective -Location eastus

ServiceObjectiveName SkuName       Edition          Family Capacity CapacityUnit Enabled
-------------------- -------       -------          ------ -------- ------------ -------

P15                  Premium       Premium     
and lot more

But not able to find any such azure management rest api to get the same information. Is there any such API available or Azure not yet exposing this information via rest? Please advise.

    Hi Atanu,

    Below REST API will allow you to list Tier and SKU details for specific location. It is equivalent REST API to the powershell sample code you posted:

    Capabilities - List By Location

    Here you will find how to make a REST API request to get all those properties and more of an Azure SQL Database.

    This is a sample request:


    And this is the JSON output it may produce:

        "name": "BC_Gen5",
        "tier": "BusinessCritical",
        "capacity": 2

    Hi @Atanu Gupta

    Have you tried below Database-Get for individual database.

    You would get result like below
