We’re excited to announce that Azure CLI now supports tab completion on Windows PowerShell, a highly anticipated feature for many Windows users.

This new capability not only applies to commands and parameters but also extends to values such as account name and subscription name.

When typing in a command followed by a parameter, pressing the tab key will display a list of available options for that parameter. This saves users time and effort in remembering specific arguments or looking them up in documentation.


This enhanced feature is now available for CLI 2.49.0  and above


We are also pleased to announce that the performance of the completion has also improved dramatically in 2.49.0. The completion time is reduced by 80% to 90% for incomplete commands. Most completion can be finished in approximately 0.4 seconds on Linux.

We encourage you to install the latest version. For most of the commands, you can get the suggestion instantly, which makes for a smoother and more enjoyable experience.



If you encounter any issues while using CLI or have suggestions on how we can make it even better, please do not hesitate to create an issue on GitHub.


Thank you!
