Azure CLI Service Principal Terraform Env Variable Authentication

In response to: https://registry.terraform.io/providers/hashicorp/azurerm/latest/docs/guides/service_principal_client_secret

I'm wondering if there are any work arounds to storing credentials as environment variables when configuring the service principal in terraform using the Azure Cloud Shell. It seems to be a redundant process for each session especially when the attempt is to automate more of the process for clients. Alternatives already include using a bash script.
