Azure SQL Managed Identity in .Net Core without using access token

DevBuster007 171 Reputation points

We are using Azure SQL to connect from .Net 6.0 application.
It's a very high traffic application with millions of read write operations. Getting access token every time will slowdown the system.
We want to use managed Identity but without using the code to fetch Access Token. Please let us know if MS has this capability for now?

    Both user-assigned and system-assigned identities make use of tokens. Identities cannot be used without token.

    You can consider file-based authentication when token is not needed. Please get more information from here.

    Instead of looking for an insecure way of connecting to your SQL Server, why not look into connection pooling?
