Hey, Scripting Guy! Question I’ve heard that JSON is used to define features in Azure Resource Manager. Is there a way to export a resource group in JSON format?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Just use the Export-AzureRMResourceGroup cmdlet and provide the resource group name. It will automatically save a JSON file that matches the resource group name in your current folder. Here is an example:

Export-AzureRMResourceGroup –resourcegroupname HSG-AzureRG
