The Azure CLI by default will always install the most recent version, without the option to specify a specific version of the Azure CLI to install.
Utilizing a specific version of the Azure CLI
To utilize a specific version of the Azure CLI you will need to first install the most recent version of the CLI and then downloading and setting a specific version.
This article assumes you are utilizing the CircleCI Azure CLI Orb.
The following commands first install the CLI and then install and set the version
2.18.0 to be used.
- azure-cli/install - run: apt-cache policy azure-cli | sudo apt-get install --allow-downgrades azure-cli=2.18.0-1~stretch
The only adjustment that needs to be made to the above is adjusting
2.18.0-1~stretch to point to the version you want to utilize.
