Azure Active Directory PowerShell with Modern Authentication

We are happy to announce the public preview of modern authentication to the Azure Active Directory PowerShell Module. Previous iterations of the AAD PowerShell took a dependency on authentication through the Microsoft Online Services Sign-In Assistant. Modern authentication uses the Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL) to bring a better sign-in experience for the user, with more advance authentication options like multi-factor authentication (MFA). Now when administering your Office 365 Subscription or Azure Active Directory Tenant, you can expect the same great sign-in experience you currently have with your other Office 365 products. 

Our specific goals for this public preview is to enable users who have accounts protected with MFA to authenticate and use AAD PowerShell, while minimizing the number of changes to the existing cmdlets. You should notice no differences when using the new PowerShell module after you have authenticated, but we have made a few changes to the initial Connect-MSOLService cmdlet:

1.       We have removed the Connect-MSOLService –CurrentCredentials parameter for the time being.

2.       We have added a new parameter: Connect-MSOLService –AccessToken where you can sign in to AAD PowerShell by providing an AAD Access Token that you have acquired elsewhere.

In addition to the changes to support Modern Authentication this release also includes new cmdlets to manage devices within Azure AD.  Those cmdlets are as follows:

  • Get-MsolDevice
  • Enable-MsolDevice
  • Disable-MsolDevice
  • Remove-MsolDevice

We look forward to hearing your feedback on the preview release.
