Azure Native v2.30.0 published on Friday, Feb 23, 2024 by Pulumi


    The Pulumi Azure Native Provider v2 is now available. You can start taking advantages of the smaller, streamlined SDKs right away while also incorporating other enhancements including simplified user assigned identity handling, refreshed default versions, and consistent title casing. To upgrade to v2, there are a few changes you may need to make depending on your Pulumi programs.

    Upgrade Steps


    We recommend upgrading to the latest version of the v1 provider as a prerequisite to the v2 upgrade. This will enable you to resolve any pre-existing deprecated versions or resource structure changes.

    Review your program for warnings on missing imports or deprecated resources. If your program contains any deprecated explicit versions, you will need to update these to a newer version. The suggested version is shown in the deprecation message.



    Upgrade Dependencies

    In your Pulumi program, upgrade the package to point to the latest v2.x version.

    -"@pulumi/azure-native": "^1.0.0",
    - "resolved": "https://registry.npmjs.org/@pulumi/azure-native/-/azure-native-1.104.0.tgz",
    - "resolved": "https://registry.npmjs.org/@pulumi/azure-native/-/azure-native-1.104.0.tgz",
    + @pulumi/azure-native": "v2.0.0",
    + "resolved": "https://registry.npmjs.org/@pulumi/azure-native/-/azure-native-2.0.0.tgz",
    + "resolved": "https://registry.npmjs.org/@pulumi/azure-native/-/azure-native-2.0.0.tgz",
    - pulumi_azure_native==v1.104.0
    + pulumi_azure_native==v2.0.0
    - <PackageReference Include="Pulumi.AzureNative" Version="1.104.0"
    + <PackageReference Include="Pulumi.AzureNative" Version="2.0.0"
    - github.com/pulumi/pulumi-azure-native-sdk/storage v1.104.0
    + github.com/pulumi/pulumi-azure-native-sdk/v2/storage v2.0.0

    Upgrade Imports

    Go programs will need all imports updated to include v2 in the path.

    import (
    - "github.com/pulumi/pulumi-azure-native-sdk/resources"
    - "github.com/pulumi/pulumi-azure-native-sdk/storage"
    + "github.com/pulumi/pulumi-azure-native-sdk/resources/v2"
    + "github.com/pulumi/pulumi-azure-native-sdk/storage/v2"

    If you do not replace the deprecated import, you can expect to see an error message:

        error: Running program '<path/to/project>' failed with an unhandled exception:
    Error: Cannot find module '@pulumi/azure-native/resources/v20210501'

    Review Pulumi Diff

    After updating all imports to reflect v2 included Azure API versions, run pulumi preview and review the output.

    Pending Changes on Default Versions

    You may see pending changes when using the default version as the shape of the resource may have changed. You can choose to accept the changes, update your program to modify the resource properties to mitigate changes, or choose an explicit version which is compatible with the older version of the resource.

    A full list of default version changes can be found in the top-level resource versions.

    To continue using the previous Azure API version of a resource:

    1. Check the documentation in your IDE or our registry API docs which identifies the previous version for each resource. For example: Azure REST API Version: 2022-06-15. Prior API version in Azure Native 1.x: 2020-06-01
    2. Import the previous version of the resource. These are available in the version-specific sub-folders of the SDK.

    Below are examples of changing an import to use an explicit version in each language.

    - import { EventSubscription } from "@pulumi/azure-native/eventgrid";
    + import { EventSubscription } from "@pulumi/azure-native/eventgrid/v20200601";
    - from pulumi_azure_native import eventgrid
    + from pulumi_azure_native.eventgrid import v20200601 as eventgrid
    - using EventGrid = Pulumi.AzureNative.EventGrid;
    + using EventGrid = Pulumi.AzureNative.EventGrid.V20200601;
    - import eventgrid "github.com/pulumi/pulumi-azure-native-sdk/eventgrid/v2"
    + import eventgrid "github.com/pulumi/pulumi-azure-native-sdk/eventgrid/v2/v20200601
    - type: azure-native:eventgrid:Topic
    + type: azure-native:eventgrid/v20200601:Topic

    User Assigned Identity Inputs

    User assigned identity inputs are now represented as a simple string array in each language instead of a map type. Where you are referencing user assigned identity inputs, you will need to update the syntax to resolve the error.

    import * as resources from "@pulumi/azure-native/resources";
    import * as managedidentity from "@pulumi/azure-native/managedidentity";
    import * as storage from "@pulumi/azure-native/storage";
    // Create a resource group
    const resourceGroup = new resources.ResourceGroup("my-resource-group");
    // Create a user-assigned managed identity
    const userAssignedIdentity = new managedidentity.UserAssignedIdentity("my-user-assigned-identity", {
        resourceGroupName: resourceGroup.name,
    // Create a storage account that references the user-assigned managed identity
    const storageAccount = new storage.StorageAccount("mystorageaccount", {
        resourceGroupName: resourceGroup.name,
        kind: "StorageV2",
        location: resourceGroup.location,
        identity: {
            type: "UserAssigned",
            userAssignedIdentities: [userAssignedIdentity.id],
        sku: {
            name: "Standard_LRS",

    Before this change, the identity block would need to use an apply as follows:

    user_assigned_identity.id.apply(lambda id: {id: {}})

    Title Case Changes

    All resource names are now consistently in title case, starting with an uppercase letter. The previous lowercase resource names are aliased so all Pulumi state is backwards-compatible. While functions are not aliased, resolving the name discrepancy is as simple as updating the function names. For instance, in the TypeScript SDK, azure-native.aadiam.getazureADMetric changed to azure-native.aadiam.getAzureADMetric.

    The complete list of affected resources and functions is in this PR.

    MySQL and PostgreSQL Server and Flexible Server

    Both Azure Database for MySQL and Azure Database for PostgreSQL are available in a Single Server and a Flexible Server variant. The Single Server variants are on the retirement path (MySQL, PostgreSQL). Azure recommends that all new servers are created as a Flexible Server variant.

    In v2, the following resources are now associated with a Flexible Server variant instead of Single Server as they were in v1:

    • Configuration
    • Database
    • FirewallRule
    • Server
    • PrivateEndpointConnection

    Existing v1 programs upgrading to v2 using the default version will result in a change of resource type. For instance, azure-native.dbformysql.Server would previously have referred to a Single Server but will now refer to a Flexible Server and will result in a replacement of the resource during the next pulumi up. However, the properties of flexible servers are sufficiently different that, in a typed language, the program will not compile. If you would like to continue using the previous Azure API version, you may do so by using the previous explicit version 2017-12-01.
