Securing APIs through RBAC with Azure API management and Azure AD

One of Azure API Management great features is the ability to secure your APIs through policies, and thereby separating authorisation logic from your actual APIs. There’s plenty of guidance available on how to integrate Azure API management with Azure Active Directory or other OAuth providers, but very little information on how to apply fine grained access control on your APIs. Yes, it’s easy to setup OAuth to grant access to API consumers (authorisation grant) or machine to machine communication (client credentials grant).… [Keep reading] “Securing APIs through RBAC with Azure API management and Azure AD”

A quick start guide to leveraging the Azure Graph API with PowerShell and oAuth 2.0

Update Oct 2019: See this post for simplifying oAuth Authentication to Microsoft Graph using PowerShell and the MSAL (Microsoft Authentication Libraries)

Introduction

In September 2016 I wrote this post detailing integrating with the Azure Graph API via PowerShell and oAuth 2.0.

Since that point in time I’ve found myself doing considerably more via PowerShell and the Graph API using oAuth. I regularly find myself leveraging previous scripts to generate a new script for the initial connection.… [Keep reading] “A quick start guide to leveraging the Azure Graph API with PowerShell and oAuth 2.0”

Leveraging the Microsoft Graph API with PowerShell and OAuth 2.0

Update Oct 2019: See this post for simplifying oAuth Authentication to Microsoft Graph using PowerShell and the MSAL (Microsoft Authentication Libraries)

Background

Microsoft Graph is the evolvement of API’s into Microsoft Cloud Services. For me not being a developer, a key difference is interacting with with Graph API using OAuth 2.0 via PowerShell. Through a number of my previous posts I’ve interacted with the Graph API using client libraries such as the Microsoft.IdentityModel.Clients.ActiveDirectory library. This post details using PowerShell to talk directly to Graph API and managing Authentication and Authorization using OAuth 2.0… [Keep reading] “Leveraging the Microsoft Graph API with PowerShell and OAuth 2.0”
