List and get databases and graphs for Azure Cosmos DB - API for MongoDB



We recommend that you use the Azure Az PowerShell module to interact with Azure. To get started, see Install Azure PowerShell. To learn how to migrate to the Az PowerShell module, see Migrate Azure PowerShell from AzureRM to Az.

This sample requires Azure PowerShell Az 5.4.0 or later. Run Get-Module -ListAvailable Az to see which versions are installed. If you need to install, see Install Azure PowerShell module.

Run Connect-AzAccount to sign in to Azure.

Sample script

# Reference: Az.CosmosDB |
# --------------------------------------------------
# Purpose
# Show list and get operations for accounts, databases, and collections
# --------------------------------------------------
# Variables - ***** SUBSTITUTE YOUR VALUES *****
$resourceGroupName = "myResourceGroup" # Resource Group must already exist
$accountName = "myaccount" # Must be all lower case
$databaseName = "myDatabase"
$collectionName = "myCollection"
# --------------------------------------------------

Write-Host "List all accounts in a resource group"
Get-AzCosmosDBAccount -ResourceGroupName $resourceGroupName

Write-Host "Get an account in a resource group"
Get-AzCosmosDBAccount -ResourceGroupName $resourceGroupName `
    -Name $accountName

Write-Host "List all databases in an account"
Get-AzCosmosDBMongoDBDatabase -ResourceGroupName $resourceGroupName `
    -AccountName $accountName

Write-Host "Get a database in an account"
Get-AzCosmosDBMongoDBDatabase -ResourceGroupName $resourceGroupName `
    -AccountName $accountName -Name $databaseName

Write-Host "List all collections in a database"
Get-AzCosmosDBMongoDBCollection -ResourceGroupName $resourceGroupName `
    -AccountName $accountName -DatabaseName $databaseName 

Write-Host "Get a collection in a database"
Get-AzCosmosDBMongoDBCollection -ResourceGroupName $resourceGroupName `
    -AccountName $accountName -DatabaseName $databaseName `
    -Name $collectionName
