Step By Step Instructions on Installing Azure ARM template test toolkit

Posted by Sriram Sanka on April 5, 2023


Azure ARM Template Validation Tool Kit helps you to validate & meet the Requirements to Publish your Solution to Azure Market Place.

You can Download the Latest Toolkit from https://github.com/Azure/arm-ttk/releases .

  • Download and Extract(unzip) arm-ttk.zip file
  • Start the Power Shell as administrator
  • Navigate to the Extracted Folder/Directory.
  • Unblock the script files Using “Get-ChildItem *.ps1, *.psd1, *.ps1xml, *.psm1 -Recurse | Unblock-File”
  • Import the module using ” Import-Module .\arm-ttk.psd1 “
  • Validate Templates using module “Test-AzTemplate”
Get-ChildItem *.ps1, *.psd1, *.ps1xml, *.psm1 -Recurse | Unblock-File
Import-Module .\arm-ttk.psd1
Test-AzTemplate -TemplatePath \path\to\template

Download and Extract(unzip) arm-ttk.zip file

Start the Power Shell as administrator & Navigate to the Extracted Folder/Directory.

Unblock the script files Using “Get-ChildItem *.ps1, *.psd1, *.ps1xml, *.psm1 -Recurse | Unblock-File”

Import the module using ” Import-Module .\arm-ttk.psd1 “

https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/microsoft.powershell.core/about/about_execution_policies?view=powershell-7.3

As mentioned in the Error, we need to Enable Execution Policy as Remote Signed to Local Machine to avoid the above Error.

Note : If you do not wish to Import the Module, You can still run the Test-AzTemplate as Local using “./Test-AzTemplate ” check the help provided for more Details.

Run “Test-AzTemplate -TemplatePath \path\to\template” to validate your ARM Templates (In My Case UI Definition and MainTemplate)

Fix the Reported issues and revalidate.
