How To Locate An Image SKU In Azure Using PowerShell

In this snip, I show you how to identify specific image SKU’s and versions of offers available in Azure. This is useful when deploying specific version of a server OS or a virtual Appliance in Azure. I walk through the process of identifying image publishers available by subscription and region, then list the Offers available from that Publisher, the Image SKU and finally the Image Version. Once this information in collected, the code included can be used to output the details in a JSON ready format to be used in an ARM template for deployment.

Prerequisites include: Azure Subscription and the Azure module for PowerShell.
