I am looking for heads up, to write python code to get my Azure VM status in my email or in Vm, like whether it is live or not and since how many days like the type of information.

This code i am going to write in Python. Looking for support for the same.

Hi, @Mukund,

For an Azure Virtual Machine, we need to have several Azure resources. Before starting with anything, make sure you have an Active Directory service principal. You also need to have the application ID, the authentication key, and the tenant ID that you need in a later.

  • Open file that was created, and then add this code to enable your application to run:
if __name__ == "__main__":
  • To import the code that is needed, add these statements to the top of the .py file:

from azure.common.credentials import ServicePrincipalCredentials 

from azure.mgmt.resource import ResourceManagementClient 

from azure.mgmt.compute import ComputeManagementClient

 from import NetworkManagementClient

 from azure.mgmt.compute.models import DiskCreateOption
  • Next in the .py file, add variables after the import statements to specify common values used in the code:
SUBSCRIPTION_ID = 'subscription-id'

 GROUP_NAME = 'myResourceGroup' 

LOCATION = 'westus' 

VM_NAME = 'myVM'
  • To create the Active Directory credentials that you need to make requests, add this function after the variables in the .py file:

def get_credentials():

 credentials = ServicePrincipalCredentials( 

client_id = 'application-id', secret = 'authentication-key',

 tenant = 'tenant-id'


  return credentials
  • To call the function that you previously added, add this code under the if statement at the end of the .py file:

credentials = get_credentials()
