Move-AzureRmResource

Moves a resource to a different resource group or subscription.

Caution

The AzureRM PowerShell module will retire on 29 February 2024. For more information, see Migrate Azure PowerShell from AzureRM to Az.

Retirement indicates that the AzureRM PowerShell module will be deprecated, subsequently ceasing to receive support. While this does not inherently mean the module will stop functioning, its use beyond 29 February 2024 will be at the user's discretion and risk, as it will no longer be maintained or updated.

Syntax

Move-AzureRmResource
    -DestinationResourceGroupName <String>
    [-DestinationSubscriptionId <Guid>]
    -ResourceId <String[]>
    [-Force]
    [-ApiVersion <String>]
    [-Pre]
    [-DefaultProfile <IAzureContextContainer>]
    [-InformationAction <ActionPreference>]
    [-InformationVariable <String>]
    [-WhatIf]
    [-Confirm]
    [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Move-AzureRmResource cmdlet moves existing resources to a different resource group. That resource group can be in a different subscription.

Examples

Example 1: Move a resource to a resource group

PS C:\>$Resource = Get-AzureRmResource -ResourceType "Microsoft.ClassicCompute/storageAccounts" -ResourceName "ContosoStorageAccount"
PS C:\> Move-AzureRmResource -ResourceId $Resource.ResourceId -DestinationResourceGroupName "ResourceGroup14"

The first command gets a resource named ContosoStorageAccount by using the Get-AzureRmResource cmdlet, and then stores that resource in the $Resource variable. The second command moves that resource into the resource group named ResourceGroup14. The command identifies the resource to move by using the ResourceId property of $Resource.
