Creates an Automation credential.

Syntax

New-AzureRmAutomationCredential
   [-ResourceGroupName] <String>
   [-AutomationAccountName] <String>
   [-Name] <String>
   [-Value] <PSCredential>
   [-Description <String>]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The New-AzureRmAutomationCredential cmdlet creates a credential as a PSCredential object in Azure Automation.

Examples

Example 1: Create a credential

PS C:\>$User = "Contoso\PFuller"
PS C:\> $Password = ConvertTo-SecureString "Password" -AsPlainText -Force
PS C:\> $Credential = New-Object -TypeName System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -ArgumentList $User, $Password
PS C:\> New-AzureRmAutomationCredential -AutomationAccountName "Contoso17" -Name "ContosoCredential" -Value $Credential -ResourceGroupName "ResourceGroup01"

The first command assigns a user name to the $User variable.

The second command converts a plain text password into a secure string by using the ConvertTo-SecureString cmdlet. The command stores that object in the $Password variable.

The third command creates a credential based on $User and $Password, and then stores it in the $Credential variable.

The final command creates an Automation credential named ContosoCredential that uses $Credential.
