This repository is for active development of the Azure SDK for Go. For consumers of the SDK you can follow the links below to visit the documentation you are interested in

To get started with a library, see the README.md file located in the library's project folder. You can find these library folders grouped by service in the
Each service might have a number of libraries available from each of the following categories:
- Client - New Releases
- Client - Previous Versions
- Management - New Releases
- Management - Previous Versions
Client: New Releases
We have a new wave of packages that are being announced as stable and several that are currently released in beta. These libraries allow you to use, consume, and interact with existing resources, for example, uploading a blob. These libraries share a number of core functionalities including retries, logging, transport protocols, authentication protocols, etc. that can be found in the azcore library. You can learn more about these libraries by reading about the Azure SDK Go guidelines.
NOTE: If you need to ensure your code is ready for production use one of the stable, non-beta libraries.
Client: Previous Versions
The last stable versions of packages that have been provided for usage with Azure are production-ready. These libraries might not implement the Azure Go SDK guidelines or have the same feature set as the New releases, however they do offer a wider coverage of services.
Management: New Releases
A new set of management libraries that follow the Azure SDK Design Guidelines for Go are available at
sdk/resourcemanagement. These new libraries provide a number of core capabilities that are shared amongst all Azure SDKs, including the intuitive Azure Identity library, an HTTP Pipeline with custom policies, error-handling, distributed tracing, and much more.
You can find the most up to date list of all of the new packages on our page
NOTE: If you need to ensure your code is ready for production use one of the stable, non-beta libraries. Also, if you are experiencing authentication issues with the management libraries after upgrading certain packages, it's possible that you upgraded to the new versions of SDK without changing the authentication code. Please refer to the migration guide for proper instructions.
- Quickstart tutorial for new releases. Documentation is also available at each readme file of the individual module (Example: Readme for Compute Module)
Management: Previous Versions
For a complete list of management libraries which enable you to provision and manage Azure resources, please check here. They might not have the same feature set as the new releases but they do offer wider coverage of services.
Other Azure Go Packages
Azure provides several other packages for using services from Go, listed below. These packages do NOT follow the New Release guidelines.
|Storage - Blobs||github.com/Azure/azure-storage-blob-go|
|Storage - Files||github.com/Azure/azure-storage-file-go|
|Storage - Queues||github.com/Azure/azure-storage-queue-go|
