DefaultAzureCredential class

Definition

A default credential capable of handling most Azure SDK authentication scenarios.

The identity it uses depends on the environment. When an access token is needed, it requests one using these identities in turn, stopping when one provides a token:

  1. A service principal configured by environment variables. See EnvironmentCredential for more details.

  2. An Azure managed identity. See ManagedIdentityCredential for more details.

  3. On Windows only: a user who has signed in with a Microsoft application, such as Visual Studio. If multiple identities are in the cache, then the value of the environment variable AZURE_USERNAME is used to select which identity to use. See SharedTokenCacheCredential for more details.
