Hi Team, I am currently using Microsoft.Azure.Management.Fluent package to create azure instance for fetching storage account keys. Since this package is deprecated, can u recommend a solution? Below is the code:  var credentials = SdkContext.AzureCredentialsFactory.FromServicePrincipal(             clientId,             secertKey,             tennatId,             AzureEnvironment.AzureGlobalCloud); var azureInstance = Microsoft.Azure.Management.Fluent.Azure             .Configure()             .WithLogLevel(HttpLoggingDelegatingHandler.Level.Basic)             .Authenticate(credentials).WithSubscription(subscription);

    @Bhuvaneshwari Balasubramaniam Firstly, Apologies for the delay response! Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Forum, Thank you for posting your query here! Yes, the Microsoft.Azure.Management.Fluent package is deprecated. You can use the Azure.Identity package to authenticate and authorize access to Azure resources. Here is an example code snippet to authenticate and authorize access to Azure resources using the Azure.Identity package:

    using Azure.Identity;
    using Azure.Storage.Blobs;
    using System;
    
    string storageAccountName = "<your-storage-account-name>";
    string tenantId = "<your-tenant-id>";
    string clientId = "<your-client-id>";
    string clientSecret = "<your-client-secret>";
    
    var credential = new ClientSecretCredential(tenantId, clientId, clientSecret);
    var blobServiceClient = new BlobServiceClient(new Uri($"https://{storageAccountName}.blob.core.windows.net"), credential);
    
    var keys = blobServiceClient.Account.GetAccountInfo().Keys;
    foreach (var key in keys)
    {
        Console.WriteLine(key.Value);
    }using Azure.Identity; using Azure.Security.KeyVault.Secrets; using Azure.Storage.Blobs; 
    

    In this example, we are using the DefaultAzureCredential class to authenticate and authorize access to Azure resources. The SecretClient class is used to retrieve the storage account key from the Azure Key Vault. Finally, we are using the BlobServiceClient class to interact with the storage account.
