List all images published by Canonical

Canonical publishes Ubuntu images under the Canonical publisher ID. You can find all our images using this az command:

az vm image list -p Canonical --all -o table

Via the portal, make sure to look for Canonical rather than Ubuntu to find the official Ubuntu images. Also, always make sure the offer is published by Canonical. Non-Pro LTS offers are always FREE.
