I have inferred how to build the sku-name parameter for the Azure CLI postgres server create command, but I haven't been able to find an "official" document as to which combinations of tier/family/cores have been configured. I see in the Rest API documentation that the parameter "name" is just a string, with attributes defining tier/family/cores, but the CLI doesn't seem to provide that level of granularity at first glance. It seems like a natural thing to have associated with the pricing calculator or in the CLI documentation.

Hi Eric,

In looking at the following tutorial: Create an Azure Database for PostgreSQL server

az postgres server create -l northeurope -g testgroup -n testsvr -u username -p password \ --sku-name GP_Gen4_2

There is currently no public documentation that details the available --sku-name valid values. I suggest that you reach out to the Azure Database for PostgreSQL User Voice and recommend that a list of valid values be made available. 

Another option is to follow the below link, and at the bottom of the page is a GitHub link to provide Content Feedback. By creating a GitHub issue against this document for a valid sku-name list, we can have the content owner provide a list of valid values.

Please let me know if you have additional question. Regards, Mike
