Introducing Certificate-Based Authentication for Exchange Online Remote PowerShell

Hosted by MVP Vasil Michev

Recorded on July 30, 2020.

PowerShell continues to be an instrumental weapon in the IT Pros arsenal. That said, not a lot has changed since we embarked on our journey to the cloud. Even the recent release of PowerShell 7 didn't give us the improvements we yearned for to help us resolve the other notorious issues. Luckily, these drawbacks have been addressed by Microsoft in the new V2 module.

Microsoft is finally closing the curtains for basic authentication and is addressing scenarios where you want to perform some tasks via a scheduled script or workflow that can't be used with an interactive MFA challenge. 

Now, Microsoft has released a preview version of the ExO V2 module that brings support for the so-called client credentials flow, allowing you to run tasks with the use of certificate-based authentication.

What this means is we can now securely automate processes that involve running Exchange Online PowerShell cmdlets, without the need to resort to using basic authentication. 

During this webinar, we'll cover:

  • How to automate tasks for Exchange Online PowerShell
  • Additional tips and tricks!

Aimed at MSP Partners, IT Managers, Exchange admins, Office 365 Engineers, and IT Professionals. This session will outline everything you need to know about the new Exchange Online Remote PowerShell capabilities, and how to use in them in your daily administrative tasks.
