As previously announced, we are deprecating all /microsoft org container images hosted in Docker Hub repositories on June 30th, 2021. This includes some old azure-cli images (pre v2.12.1), all of which are already available on Microsoft Container Registry (MCR).

In preparation for the deprecation, we are removing the latest tag from the microsoft/azure-cli  container image in Dockerhub. If you are referencing microsoft/azure-cli:latest in your automation or Dockerfiles, you will see failures.


What should I do?

To avoid any impact on your development, deployment, or automation scripts, you should update docker pull commands, FROM statements in Dockerfiles, and other references to microsoft/azure-cli container images to explicitly reference instead.


What’s next?

On June 30th we will remove all version tags from Dockerhub for microsoft/azure-cli . After that date the only to consume the container images will be via MCR.
