Recently, I’ve been working on a cheat sheet to collect all the commands needed to connect to Microsoft cloud services. Now I am happy to share this information here on my blog with you. Let’s get started.
Template for Az, AzureAD, ExchangeOnline, MSTeams
The template below shows all of the most important commands for connecting to the Microsoft Cloud services. First, consider the following:
- You need to install the required modules for each cloud service separately. Line 5 – 14 shows the required code
- In the second part (line 20,21) the installation of the required modules is checked
- Each section begins with the connection establishment and ends with a simple command for checking out if the connection was successfully established
<# CONNECT TO MICROSOFT CLOUD SERVICES (Azure, Microsoft 365) Required modules: 1. Az Install-Module Az -Force -AllowClobber 2. AzureAD Install-Module AzureAD -Force -AllowClobber 3. ExchangeOnlineManagement Install-Module ExchangeOnlineManagement -Force -AllowClobber 4.
