How do I avoid being prompted multiple times when running the Microsoft Graph Powershell script?

Connect-MgGraph -Scopes Reports.Read.All, User.Read.All, UserAuthenticationMethod.Read.All
Select-MgProfile beta

Get-MgReportAuthenticationMethodUserRegistrationDetail -Filter "IsMfaRegistered eq false and IsAdmin eq true"

With the above script, there are 40+ users returned; hence I was prompted 40 times to login with the MFA. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Try the solution here:

    https://github.com/microsoftgraph/msgraph-sdk-powershell#known-issues

    • Customers upgrading from previous versions of the SDK may encounter auth prompts on every command call. If this happens, one can use the following steps to reset their token cache:
    • Use Disconnect-MgGraph to sign out of the current session.
    • Run Remove-Item "$env:USERPROFILE\.graph" -Recurse -Force to delete your token cache.
    • Run Connect-MgGraph to reconstruct a clean token cache.

    Hello there, You can use an unattended daemon, which requires connecting to MS graph using the application's client id and certificate name. Connect-MgGraph -ClientID YOUR_APP_ID -TenantId YOUR_TENANT_ID -CertificateName YOUR_CERT_SUBJECT
