Connect PowerShell to your Azure Subscription using Azure AD account

Standard

Just a cross post highlighting my blog entry on our team blog called  “Ask PFE Platforms” about using Azure AD to connect PowerShell to an Azure Subscription

“A while back I had shared with you a way to connect PowerShell to your Azure Subscription via the certificate method using Get-AzurePublishSettingsFile cmdlet. This method works as long as the subscription and certificates are valid, and it has limitations when more than one person is expected to be able to access the subscription.
