Upgrade notes#

This document contains notes to help upgrade from previous versions of PSRule for Azure.

Upgrading to v2.0.0#

PSRule for Azure v2.0.0 is a planned future release. It's not yet available, but you can take these steps to proactively prepare for the release.

Realigned configuration option names#

Several configuration options will be renamed in upcoming releases of PSRule for Azure. This is part of a ongoing effort to align the naming of configuration options across PSRule for Azure. For information on other options that will be renamed see deprecations.

You only need to take action if you have explicitly set old configuration option names.

The old option names may be set in:

  • An option file such as ps-rule.yaml.
  • A custom baseline.
  • An environment variable.

To locate any configurations, search for the old option names within your Infrastructure as Code repo.

New name Old name Available from
AZURE_AKS_CLUSTER_MINIMUM_VERSION Azure_AKSMinimumVersion v1.12.0

To update your configuration, use the new name instead.

Note

Environment variables are prefixed by PSRULE_CONFIGURATION_ and are case sensitive.

Set the AZURE_AKS_CLUSTER_MINIMUM_VERSION option in ps-rule.yaml.

# YAML: Set the AZURE_AKS_CLUSTER_MINIMUM_VERSION configuration option to 1.22.4
configuration:
  AZURE_AKS_CLUSTER_MINIMUM_VERSION: 1.22.4

Set the PSRULE_CONFIGURATION_AZURE_AKS_CLUSTER_MINIMUM_VERSION environment variable.

# Bash: Set the AZURE_AKS_CLUSTER_MINIMUM_VERSION configuration option to 1.22.4
export PSRULE_CONFIGURATION_AZURE_AKS_CLUSTER_MINIMUM_VERSION=1.22.4

Set the PSRULE_CONFIGURATION_AZURE_AKS_CLUSTER_MINIMUM_VERSION environment variable.

# GitHub Actions: Set the AZURE_AKS_CLUSTER_MINIMUM_VERSION configuration option to 1.22.4
env:
  PSRULE_CONFIGURATION_AZURE_AKS_CLUSTER_MINIMUM_VERSION: '1.22.4'

Set the PSRULE_CONFIGURATION_AZURE_AKS_CLUSTER_MINIMUM_VERSION environment variable.

# Azure Pipelines: Set the AZURE_AKS_CLUSTER_MINIMUM_VERSION configuration option to 1.22.4
variables:
- name: PSRULE_CONFIGURATION_AZURE_AKS_CLUSTER_MINIMUM_VERSION
  value: '1.22.4'

Removal of SupportsTags function#

The SupportsTags function is a PowerShell function used for filtering rules. Previously you could use this function to only run a rule against resources that support tags. As of v1.15.0 this function has been deprecated for removal in the next major release v2.0.0.

From v2.0.0 the SupportsTags function will not longer work.

The SupportsTags function was previously only available for PowerShell rules and not well documented. Instead you can use the Azure.Resource.SupportsTags selector introduced in v1.15.0. This selector supports the the same features but also supports YAML and JSON rules in addition to PowerShell.

To upgrade your PowerShell rules use the -With parameter to set Azure.Resource.SupportsTags. For example:

# Synopsis: Old rule using the SupportsTags function
Rule 'Local.MyRule' -If { (SupportsTags) } {
  # Rule logic goes here
}

# Synopsis: Rule updated using the Azure.Resource.SupportsTags selector
Rule 'Local.MyRule' -With 'Azure.Resource.SupportsTags' {
  # Rule logic goes here
}

To read more about the selector, see the documentation.
