PoolAddParameter - python add user assigned identity

Emil Obrestad 20 Reputation points

I am creating Azure Batch Pool using the Python Batch SDK.
How can I add user assigned identity when creating the PoolAddParameter? I've tried using BatchPoolIdentity.

I've found a workaround, but it is not optimal.
Scale down Pool nodes after creation --> Manually add user assigned identity --> Scale up Pool nodes --> Then user assigned identity works.

How can I add user assigned identity for PoolAddParameter?

    It seems that PoolAddParameter class in azure.batch does not currently support the identity parameter. There is currently an open GitHub issue to add this to the Python SDK. There is a workaround supplied that uses azure.mgmt.batch for pool creation, as the Pool class there supports managed identity. This sample shows how to create a pool using azure.mgmt.batch. Hope this helps. Let me know if you still need assistance or have further questions.
