SharePointMigrationTool session using App-Only Authentication

The page https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepointmigration/how-to-use-the-sharepoint-migration-tool States that SharePointMigrationTool suports "Client certificate authentication"

Is there an explanation somewhere how to do it?
I have a registered App in Azure and I would like to do the Migrations with it because our tenant Uses MFA and it is not feasible for automated migrations.

Any help will help :-)
Thanks

    Hi @Gal, Ofer , thank you for posting in the Q&A forum.

    Quoting the document you mentioned:

    When you first launch the SharePoint Migration Tool (SPMT), you are prompted for your Microsoft 365 username and password. The credentials you provide will be to the migration destination.

    The supported authentication method listed under, including "Client certificate authentication", are meant for the on-premises server. Azure registered app authentication cannot be used in this scenario.
