List all Azure Regions using PowerShell | Azure Cloud Shell

In this post, I will show you how to list all Azure regions using PowerShell. You can also use Azure Cloud Shell to get a list of all Azure regions along with physical location and geography group details.

Each Azure geography contains one or more regions and meets specific data residency and compliance requirements. From the Azure Portal, it is difficult to list all the Azure Regions and this is where PowerShell is useful.

Most of the configuration in Azure can be done with Azure Portal. However, in some situations using PowerShell commands makes your tasks easier. Thankfully, the PowerShell automation is supported through the Azure Portal.

To manage Azure using PowerShell you must first install Azure PowerShell module. There are different ways to install Azure PowerShell module. You could choose any of these methods listed below:

  1. Azure PowerShell from WebPI. Download Azure PowerShell and start the install.
  2. Using PowerShell Gallery
  3. Download MSI installer from GitHub
