This Sample repo includes sample code demonstrating common mechanism for authenticating to an Azure Key Vault vault.

Samples in this repo

    • auth_using_service_principle_credentials -- authenticates to an Azure Key Vault vault using AAD service principle credentials
    • auth_using_adal_callback -- authenticates to an Azure Key Vault vault by providing a callback to authenticate using adal

Running The samples

  1. If you don't already have it, install Python.

  2. We recommend using a virtual environment to run this example, but it's not mandatory. You can initialize a virtual environment this way:

    pip install virtualenv
    virtualenv mytestenv
    cd mytestenv
    source bin/activate
  3. Clone the repository.

    git clone
  4. Install the dependencies using pip.

    cd key-vault-python-authentication
    pip install -r requirements.txt
  5. Create an Azure service principal, using Azure CLI, PowerShell or Azure Portal.

  6. Export these environment variables into your current shell.

    export AZURE_TENANT_ID={your tenant id}
    export AZURE_CLIENT_ID={your service principal AppID}
    export AZURE_CLIENT_OID={your service principal OID}
    export AZURE_CLIENT_SECRET={your application key}
    export AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID={your subscription id}
  7. Run the samples, optionally specifying a space delimited list of specific samples to run.

    python [samplename[ samplename...]]

Minimum Requirements

Python 2.7, 3.3, or 3.4. To install Python, please go to
