CSP access to tenants using powershell. Part 4

This is a small script that connects to partnercenter list all customers tenants and let you select one. When one is selected it connects to azuread and az for that customer.

All my credentials are stored in SecretServer . I use a web service request to get those credentials. I will show these modules in a later post.


import-module partnercenter

#$app = AppID + AppKey
$app=Get-SecretID -secretID xxxx
#rt = refreshtoken.
$rt=Get-SecretID -secretID yyyy
$refreshtoken=$rt.GetNetworkCredential().Password
$tid="'csp tenant directory id'"

   
   
#Connect PartnerCenter
$pcToken = New-PartnerAccessToken -RefreshToken $refreshToken -Resource https://api.partnercenter.microsoft.com -Credential $app -TenantId $tid
Connect-PartnerCenter -AccessToken $pcToken.AccessToken -ApplicationId $app.username -TenantId $tid

    $customers=get-partnercustomer | sort-object -Property name
    $counter=0
    foreach($cust in $customers){
        Write-Host "$($counter) - $($cust.Name) - $($cust.domain)"
        $counter++
    }
    $custid=Read-Host "Enter customer #"
    $customer=$customers[$custid]
    Write-host " Targeting : $($customer.name) - $($customer.Domain)"

$azureToken = New-PartnerAccessToken -Resource "https://graph.microsoft.com/" -Credential $app -RefreshToken $refreshtoken -TenantId $customer.CustomerId
$graphToken = New-PartnerAccessToken -RefreshToken $refreshToken -Resource "https://graph.windows.net/" -Credential $app -TenantId $customer.CustomerId  

Connect-Azuread -aadAccessToken $graphToken.AccessToken -msAccessToken $azureToken.AccessToken -TenantId $customer.CustomerId  -AccountId $app.username


$azure2Token = New-PartnerAccessToken -Resource https://management.azure.com/ -Credential $app -RefreshToken $refreshtoken -TenantId $customer.CustomerId
$graph2Token = New-PartnerAccessToken -RefreshToken $refreshToken -Resource https://graph.windows.net/ -Credential $app -TenantId $customer.CustomerId  

 Connect-AzAccount -AccessToken $azure2Token.AccessToken -GraphAccessToken $graph2Token.AccessToken -TenantId $customer.CustomerId  -AccountId $app.username

CSP access to tenants using powershell. Part 3

In this part 3 of CSP and powershell I will show how you can connect to azureAD of a customer tenant using your CSP app credentials and refreshtoken. This is almost the same procedure as we use to connect to az. We will start with the same variables as in part 2. Remember to keep your credential and secure, as it will give access to all your tenants.


$app=get-credential # Get AppID and Key for out partnecenter app. (created in part 1)
$refreshtoken = 'refreshtoken' # From part 1 or whenever we get a new one.
$CustomerTenantID= 'Azure directory object id'

Struggled for a while to get this to work. The important thing is the endpoints and when to use the customer tenant ID.


$azureToken = New-PartnerAccessToken -Resource "https://graph.microsoft.com/" -Credential $app -RefreshToken $refreshtoken -TenantId $CustomerTenantID
$graphToken = New-PartnerAccessToken -RefreshToken $refreshToken -Resource "https://graph.windows.net/" -Credential $app -TenantId $CustomerTenantID  

Connect-Azuread -aadAccessToken $graphToken.AccessToken -msAccessToken $azureToken.AccessToken -TenantId $CustomerTenantID  -AccountId $app.username

So now you can use get-azureaduser to get users from this customer tenant.

You could also use the MS online module msol to query for users, this module requires you to use tenantid as an argument.

In part 4 I will wrap this up in a simple script allowing you to select customer tenant.

CSP access to tenants using powershell. Part 2

In part 1 we created the Azure Enterprise App for Partnercenter and used this information to connect using powershell and connect-partnercenter. Now we will use this to connect to one of our customers tenants. First we will use AZ module and connect-azaccount. We will use the AZ module and the partnercenter module. So if those at not installed please install :


install-module az
install-module partnercenter

I will use the partnercenter module to request an accesstoken for azure.


$app=get-credential # Get AppID and Key for out partnecenter app. (created in part 1)
$refreshtoken = 'refreshtoken' # From part 1 or whenever we get a new one.
$CustomerTenantID= 'Azure directory object id'

Now we have all the required info to connect. The credentials should be stored securely!!!!


$azureToken = New-PartnerAccessToken -Resource https://management.azure.com/ -Credential $app -RefreshToken $refreshtoken -TenantId $CustomerTenantID

$grapToken = New-PartnerAccessToken -RefreshToken $refreshToken -Resource https://graph.windows.net/ -Credential $app -TenantId $CustomerTenantID  

Connect-AzAccount -AccessToken $azureToken.AccessToken -GraphAccessToken $graphToken.AccessToken -TenantId $CustomerTenantID  -AccountId $app.username

There. We are now connected to our azure of our customer. In next part we will connect to azureAD

CSP access to tenants using powershell. Part 1

A short explanation of how to access customer tenant using a CSP tenant SPN credential connectiong to AzureAD and AZ. Have been struggling for a while to manage all our customers tenants using powershell scripts. It can be complicated to organize all the credentials, tenant domain, tenant id’s password expiry.

First step is to be able to use powershell in the CSP tenants and access the partnercenter module. To get this started Microsoft has published a script to create the SPN required for this. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/partnercenter/secure-app-model?view=partnercenterps-1.5 This script will help you create the SPN . When using the SPN for the first time you will have to consent it using an admin account. The “ConfigurePreconsent” argument adds the spn to the adminagents group, this result in the account being a global admin in the customer tenants. Next:


$credential = Get-Credential
$token = New-PartnerAccessToken -Consent -Credential $credential -Resource https://api.partnercenter.microsoft.com -TenantId 'Your Tenant Id'

This is to consent the spn and get the refresh token we will in further logins. TenantId is the ID of your partner tenant. First it asks for the credential of the newly created spn (appID and key), next it will require you to login and consent using a service account . In return you get a token. Remember to store the refresh token part in a secure place as this will be used in our next login.


$refreshToken = 'Enter the refresh token value here'
$credential = Get-Credential
$tenantId = 'Your Tenant Id'
$pcToken = New-PartnerAccessToken -RefreshToken $refreshToken -Resource https://api.partnercenter.microsoft.com -Credential $credential -TenantId $tenantId
Connect-PartnerCenter -AccessToken $pcToken.AccessToken -ApplicationId $appId -TenantId $tenantId

Here we connect to partnercenter. We got the $refreshtoken in the previous step. $credential is our appid and key returned from the script. $tenantid is the tenantid of the partner tenant. Returned from the connection is a new $pcToken. This $pcToken includes a new refresh token that we could store and use at next login, but the one we already got would still last for a default value of 90 days. We’ve had some issues it the MFA settings in the tenant allow the user to “not be asked for credentials in xx days” (So we always uncheck this box).

Part 2 will for the AZ connection to customer tenant.
