Let's be honest; dealing with Keys for Azure Service Principal can be a pain. They need to be stored securely, a team needs to be able to refresh the values before they expire, and update the old value before they expire. And even with the best of intentions this, can be a challenge to do. Fortunately Azure Active Identity has an Identity type called Managed Identity that we can assign to a resource and make use of that for authorisation. We will discuss the beneifts of using Managed Identities in Azure to authorise resources without having to use Service Principals.
