Description

Important

This PowerShell command for Azure Automation is longer supported as of 01/23/2020. The Azure Service Management model is deprecated for Azure Automation and was disabled on that date. Please use the commands which support the Azure Resource Management model in Az.Automation.

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

Examples

Example 1: Create a credential

PS C:\> $user = "MyDomain\MyUser"
PS C:\> $pw = ConvertTo-SecureString "PassWord!" -AsPlainText -Force
PS C:\> $cred = New-Object -TypeName System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -ArgumentList $user, $pw
PS C:\> New-AzureAutomationCredential -AutomationAccountName "Contoso17" -Name "MyCredential" -Value $cred

These commands create a credential named MyCredential. A credential object is first created that includes a username and password. This is then used in the last command to create the Automation credential.
