A simple package to access the instance metadata service in an Azure virtual machine.
The primary repo for this package is at https://github.com/Azure/AzureVMmetadata; please submit issues and PRs there. It is also mirrored at the Cloudyr org at https://github.com/cloudyr/AzureVMmetadata. You can install the development version of the package from GitHub:
AzureVMmetadata exposes three environments that contain the metadata for the VM:
instance: The instance metadata, containing 2 components:
attested: The attested metadata, containing the base64-encoded PKCS-7 certificate for the VM
events: The scheduled events for the VM
The first two are automatically populated when the package is loaded; you can also manually update them with the
events is not populated at package startup (it causes the event scheduler service to be started on the VM, which can take up to several minutes), but you can update it manually with
## these will only be meaningful when run in an Azure VM # all compute metadata AzureVMmetadata::instance$compute # VM name and ID AzureVMmetadata::instance$compute$name AzureVMmetadata::instance$compute$vmId # VM resource details: subscription, resource group, ID AzureVMmetadata::instance$compute$subscriptionId AzureVMmetadata::instance$compute$resourceGroupName AzureVMmetadata::instance$compute$resourceId # all network metadata AzureVMmetadata::instance$network # IPv4 address details (1st network interface) AzureVMmetadata::instance$network$interface[]$ipv4 # raw PKCS-7 certificate for the VM AzureVMmetadata::attested$signature # certificate as an openssl::cert object AzureVMmetadata::get_vm_cert()
Any scripts or data that you put into this service are public.
