Tired of typing the registry name every time you run
az acr? So was I.
The more I used
az acr the more I wanted a way of setting the
--name to a default value so I did not have to keep typing it. Turns out there is a way, you just have to dig for it.
To set the default registry use
az configure --defaults acr=<registry name>.
For completeness, what this does is modify the
~/.azure/config file. In Windows,
~ would be the user profile path, for example,
c:\users\edward. It adds a
[default] section if it does not already exist and then sets
acr to the registry name specified.
An example of a complete
config file would be like this:
[cloud] name = AzureCloud [core] first_run = yes [defaults] acr = crexample
Now I can save some time by not needing to add
--name to every
az acr command, finally. Hopefully it helps you as well. I just wish it was a little more well documented when you do a
--help on the command line.
