Hi guys,

How to query Azure AD?

If I have my Windows or Mac device, how do i set the credentials to start querying AD?

If I will use Python and PowerShell, how do i set the authentication?

Thanks for any help.

    Hi @chris_nawig · Thank you for reaching out.

    To connect to Azure AD via PowerShell, you need to run Connect-AzureAD cmdlet after installing Azure AD PowerShell Module.

    To store the credentials in variable, you can run:

    $Credential = Get-Credential  
    Connect-AzureAD -Credential $Credential  
    

    Note: If you are storing credentials in variable, MFA must be disabled for the user account.

    For Python, you can refer to this code sample.
