Description

The New-AzADSpCredential cmdlet can be used to add a new credential or to roll credentials for a service principal. The service principal is identified by supplying either the object id or service principal name.

Examples

Example 1 - Create a new service principal credential using a generated password

PS C:\> New-AzADSpCredential -ObjectId 1f99cf81-0146-4f4e-beae-2007d0668476

Secret    : System.Security.SecureString
StartDate : 11/12/2018 9:36:05 PM
EndDate   : 11/12/2019 9:36:05 PM
KeyId     : xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx
Type      : Password

A new password credential is added to the existing service principal with object id '1f99cf81-0146-4f4e-beae-2007d0668476'.

Example 2 - Create a new service principal credential using a certificate

PS C:\> $cer = New-Object System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.X509Certificate2
PS C:\> $cer.Import("C:\myapp.cer")
PS C:\> $binCert = $cer.GetRawCertData()
PS C:\> $credValue = [System.Convert]::ToBase64String($binCert)
PS C:\> New-AzADSpCredential -ServicePrincipalName "http://test123" -CertValue $credValue -StartDate $cer.NotBefore -EndDate $cer.NotAfter

The supplied base64 encoded public X509 certificate ("myapp.cer") is added to the existing service principal using its SPN.

Example 3 - Create a new service principal credential using piping

PS C:\> Get-AzADServicePrincipal -ObjectId 1f99cf81-0146-4f4e-beae-2007d0668476 | New-AzADSpCredential

Secret    : System.Security.SecureString
StartDate : 11/12/2018 9:36:05 PM
EndDate   : 11/12/2019 9:36:05 PM
KeyId     : xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx
Type      : Password

Gets the service principal with object id '1f99cf81-0146-4f4e-beae-2007d0668476' and pipes that to the New-AzADSpCredential to create a new service principal credential for that service principal with a generated password.
