Authenticate Stream Analytics egress to Azure Blob Storage using managed identities
Posted on 17 July 2019
Azure Stream Analytics supports managed identity authentication with egress to Azure Blob Storage. The identity is a managed application registered in Azure Active Directory that represents a given Stream Analytics job and can be used to authenticate to a targeted resource. Managed identities eliminate the limitations of user-based authentication methods, like needing to reauthenticate due to password changes or user token expirations that occur every 90 days.
