Enable-AzContextAutosave

Azure contexts are PowerShell objects representing your active subscription to run commands against, and the authentication information needed to connect to an Azure cloud. With Azure contexts, Azure PowerShell doesn't need to reauthenticate your account each time you switch subscriptions. For more information, see Azure PowerShell context objects.

This cmdlet allows the Azure context information to be saved and automatically loaded when you start a PowerShell process. For example, when opening a new window.

Syntax

Enable-AzContextAutosave
      [-Scope <ContextModificationScope>]
      [-DefaultProfile <IAzureContextContainer>]
      [-WhatIf]

      [<CommonParameters>]

Description

Allows the Azure context information to be saved and automatically loaded when a PowerShell process starts. The context is saved at the end of the execution of any cmdlet that affects the context. For example, any profile cmdlet. If you're using user authentication, then tokens can be updated during the course of running any cmdlet.

Examples

Example 1: Enable autosaving credentials for the current user

Turn on credential autosave for the current user. Whenever a PowerShell window is opened, your current context is remembered without logging in.
