Back in December, I did a recording with Richard Campbell the host of RunAsRadio. An IT pro podcast that first aired in 2007- way before I knew podcast was a word. For about half an hour, Richard and I talked about Azure application registrations, enterprise apps, and managed identities. What are they, how can you Read More The post RunAsRadio – App registrations and enterprise apps appeared first on adatum ..read more

A long-awaited feature for many is the ability to authenticate with Azure in a GitHub workflow. For a long time, this has been an integrated feature in Azure DevOps, and for some time GitHub actions have had the ability to authenticate using Azure Application registrations and secrets.

Changes to your Azure resources are quite common, and they are difficult to identify. Until now. Microsoft recently released (in preview) the ability to detect change events using Azure Resource Graph. Meaning you do not have to decipher the administrative events in the activity log of your resources. Much like the change tracking solution for Read More The post Track changes to Azure resources appeared first on adatum ..read more

There’s no secret you can get an Azure AD token and access API resources like Microsoft Graph, Azure Resource Manager (ARM), etc. It’s also pretty straightforward to authenticate a custom API using client credentials.

A common problem for many organizations is to share and consume infrastructure templates. Many ended up with a storage account in Azure, but that had some limitations around versioning and sharing of secrets. Directly consuming templates from a Git repository is another option. However, that’s not exactly problem-free either. For example, what happens if a Read More The post Share Bicep modules with private registry appeared first on adatum ..read more

With infrastructure as code, we strive to parameterize, re-use as much as possible, and make our code as modular as possible. As your application infrastructure grows, it might become too much work to have everything decoupled and modular. But for ad-hoc deployments, “bread and butter” resources we can make things very agile.

Over the past weeks, I have worked on automation within Azure DevOps. One of the tasks was to create a self-service tool for our developers to create new projects where all pre-requisites were taken care of.
