How to run this sample

  1. If you don't already have it, get and install .NET

  2. Clone the repo.

   git clone key-vault
   cd key-vault
  1. Create an Azure service principal, using one of the following:

    This service principal is to run the sample on your Azure account.

  2. Set the following environment variables using the information from the service principal that you created.

   export AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID={your subscription id}
   export AZURE_CLIENT_ID={your client id}
   export AZURE_CLIENT_SECRET={your client secret}
   export AZURE_TENANT_ID={your tenant id as a GUID}
   export AZURE_CLIENT_OID={Object id of the service principal}

On Windows, use set instead of export.

  1. Run the project with dotnet run

  2. Azure SDK for .NET
