Public Function AcquireTokenForClientAsync (scopes As IEnumerable(Of String)) As Task(Of AuthenticationResult)

Parameters

scopes
IEnumerable<String>

scopes requested to access a protected API. For this flow (client credentials), the scopes should be of the form "{ResourceIdUri/.default}" for instance https://management.azure.net/.default or, for Microsoft Graph, https://graph.microsoft.com/.default as the requested scopes are really defined statically at application registration in the portal, and cannot be overriden in the application.

Returns

Authentication result containing the token of the user for the requested scopes

Parameters

scopes

forceRefresh
Boolean

If true, API will ignore the access token in the cache and attempt to acquire new access token using client credentials. This override can be used in case the application knows that conditional access policies changed

Returns

Authentication result containing token of the user for the requested scopes
