0365 CLI on Windows Terminal

kasuken profile image Emanuele Bartolesi ・1 min read

Since a few months, I like to manage my Office 365 development tenants with the command line tool instead of the Office 365 portal.
The main reason is I created some scripts to clean up everything after deploy and to reset all the settings from a team or something similar.

In addition, I fell in love with Windows Terminal since the firsts beta version. :)

Create an O365 CLI Profile

Basically the only requirement to run an O365 CLI is a command prompt.
For this reason, create a profile on Windows Terminal is very easy.
In my profile, I launch a Powershell Core instance with the parameter o365.
I also configured Cascadia Code as font to have some addinational features during the reading of the console commands and results.
I added an image as background to recognize instantly the 0365 CLI.

I shared my Json configuration below.
You can just copy and paste on your Windows Terminal profile. :)

      "guid": "{61c54bbd-c2c6-5271-96e7-009a87ff44bd}",
      "name": "O365 CLI",
      "commandline": "pwsh.exe o365",
      "icon": "",
      "hidden": false,
      "cursorColor": "#FFFFFF",
      "cursorShape": "bar",
      "fontFace": "Cascadia Code",
      "fontSize": 10,
      "acrylicOpacity": 0.5,
      "background": "#012456",
      "closeOnExit": true,
      "colorScheme": "Dracula",
      "padding": "0, 0, 0, 0",
      "snapOnInput": true,
      "tabTitle": "O365 CLI",
      "startingDirectory": "%USERPROFILE%",
      "useAcrylic": true,
      "backgroundImage": "",
      "backgroundImageOpacity": 0.5,
      "backgroundImageStretchMode": "uniform"

This is how my O365 CLI looks like.

Hi Emanuele

Nice one! I'll use your profile 😁
I had to add the Dracula color schema to get your profile working:
