Accepting Azure Marketplace Terms with Azure CLI

by Carlos Mendible on 21 May 2018 » Azure, DevOps

When you try to deploy a VM from the Marketplace using an ARM (json) template you’ll get an error like the one below in the case when you’ve not previously accepted the Legal terms for the image:

[{"Legal terms have not been accepted for this item on this subscription. To accept terms using Powershell..."}]

Accepting the Legal terms is something you have to do once per subscription for each provider offer you want to use. So how can you accept the terms using the Azure CLI (version 2.0.26 or higher)?

First get the urn of the image you want to deploy:

az vm image list --all --publisher paloaltonetworks --offer vmseries --sku bundle1 --query '[0].urn'

Now feed the urn (i.e. paloaltonetworks:vmseries1:bundle1:8.1.0) to the following command:

az vm image accept-terms --urn paloaltonetworks:vmseries1:bundle1:8.1.0

And that’s it! Hope it helps!
