Upload all Azure Integration Account artifacts
Azure Integration Accounts are critical for business-to-business (B2B) and integration workflows with Azure Logic Apps. Communication between different parties often requires artifacts, which include trading partners, agreements, maps, schemas and certificates.
When such an Azure Integration Account was previously set up in a client project, this was done manually in the Azure portal or via custom scripts. This tedious, repetitive work was the perfect candidate to be updated in the Arcus Scripting library.
Starting from v0.6, you can now finally upload all these artifacts with clean, well-named PowerShell functions. This will reduce the number of custom scripts being copied from project to project, improve support and maintenance, and make the DevOps code a lot cleaner.
All functions are located within a single PowerShell module, called
PS> Install-Module -Name Arcus.Scripting.IntegrationAccount
Here’s an example of how to upload certificates to your Azure Integration Account:

Add Azure App Service application settings with ease
Azure App Services can have common application settings. Just like local application settings, these should not contain any sensitive or secret information but are particularly useful when passing-in dynamic configuration values that can manipulate the application. Setting such application settings has to be done via the Azure portal. With Arcus Scripting v0.6, you don’t have to make that trip to the portal anymore.
Installing the new library
Arcus.Scripting.AppService gives you access to the Azure App Service functionality:
PS> Install-Module -Name Arcus.Scripting.AppService
Setting Azure App Service application settings was never so easy:

Extend ARM template content injection with absolute file paths
One of the new features in v0.6 is entirely written by a contributor. It’s great to see our library expanding with features that were missing. All these additions grow from the usage of the library and the healthy reflex to contribute the missing pieces. In this case, the ARM template functionality to inject content into the template was missing something. We allowed relative value files to be injected into the ARM template, but didn’t have support for absolute external file paths. The way it was updated made sure that we stay backward-compatible with relative file paths, making this a very flexible piece of functionality.
All ARM functionality is located in the
Arcus.Scripting.ARM powershell module:
PS> Install-Module -Name Arcus.Scripting.ARM
When using the following ARM template example, we can now use an absolute file path for the
The injection then can be done with a simple command:
Inject-ArmContent -Path deploy\arm-template.json
For more information on the different features of the ARM module, see our documentation page.
This new version of Arcus Scripting has received the most contributions so far! It’s amazing how our contributors are helping us to improve the library, and go from better logging, to easier understandable documentation, to fully working features. This proves that this library really helps people in their daily work.
The Arcus Scripting release has a lot more to offer. Come take a look at our documentation page for a list of all the available functionality. If you have any questions, remarks, comments, or just want to discuss something, feel free to contact us.
