How to use managed identities for Azure resources on an Azure VM with Azure SDKs

Managed identities for Azure resources is a feature of Azure Active Directory. Each of the Azure services that support managed identities for Azure resources are subject to their own timeline. Make sure you review the availability status of managed identities for your resource and known issues before you begin.

This article provides a list of SDK samples, which demonstrate use of their respective Azure SDK's support for managed identities for Azure resources.

Prerequisites

  • If you're not familiar with the managed identities for Azure resources feature, see this overview. If you don't have an Azure account, sign up for a free account before you continue.

Important

  • All sample code/script in this article assumes the client is running on a VM with managed identities for Azure resources enabled. Use the VM "Connect" feature in the Azure portal, to remotely connect to your VM. For details on enabling managed identities for Azure resources on a VM, see Configure managed identities for Azure resources on a VM using the Azure portal, or one of the variant articles (using PowerShell, CLI, a template, or an Azure SDK).
