I tried following commands to get a noprompt faster login experience but each time i find login popup. I even tried using the certificate initially but since that didn't prove working, attempting with tenant id. Any help or suggestion on how to have seamless and faster login instead of interactive.
Login-AzureRmAccount -SubscriptionId 1238154XXXXfd-1c4121796e58 -TenantId 754XXXXXXXXXXX5d10d8XXX
Add-AzureRmAccount -Tenant "754XXXXXXXXXXX5d10d8XXX" -SubscriptionId "1238154XXXXfd-1c4121796e58"
Login-AzureRmAccount -TenantId 754XXXXXXXXXXX5d10d8XXX
Or, is it that I have to go via interactive login prompt always. Request pointers and thank in advance for consideration and time.
If you are using a Live ID, then you can't log in without a prompt. You can't log in non-interactively.
Once you are logged in you can save your credentials with
Save-AzureRmProfile this will save the login token to disk, that you can then use to login again with
Select-AzureRmProfile However that token does expire, so you will need to log in again.
In order to login without being prompted at all you need to create an Azure Active Directory Account.
You can then use something like this
$cred = Get-Credential Add-AzureRmAccount -Credential $cred
You can also build a credential object, so you can use this non-interactively.
You can use
-Credential parameter, and DPAPI to login.
First, run the following PowerShell once to store a secured password for your account.
Read-Host "Enter Password" -AsSecureString | ConvertTo-SecureString ` -AsPlainText -Force | ConvertFrom-SecureString | Out-File "C:\Password.txt"
And then, you can use the following script to login.
# The azure account here must not be a Live ID. $username = "<your Azure account>" $SecurePassword = Get-Content "C:\Password.txt" | ConvertTo-SecureString $cred = new-object -typename System.Management.Automation.PSCredential ` -argumentlist $username, $SecurePassword Login-AzureRmAccount -Credential $cred
An other way would be using Service Principal. First, you should follow the article to create a Service Principal
And then, use the following script to login.
$clientID = "<the client id of your AD Application>" $key = "<the key of your AD Application>" $SecurePassword = $key | ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText -Force $cred = new-object -typename System.Management.Automation.PSCredential ` -argumentlist $clientID, $SecurePassword Add-AzureRmAccount -Credential $cred -Tenant "xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx" -ServicePrincipal
