Azure Keyvault Managed Identity C#

In the below .NET 6 example you can find how to get secrets from a keyvault using Managed Identity in order to secure communication between resources.

There are two packages required for this accomplishment.


using Azure.Identity;
using Azure.Security.KeyVault.Secrets;

const string managedIdentityIdentifier = "Id";
const string secretName = "secretName";
const string keyVaultUrl = "Url";

var client = new SecretClient(vaultUri: new Uri(keyVaultUrl), credential: new ManagedIdentityCredential(managedIdentityIdentifier));
var secret = client.GetSecret(secretName);

Console.WriteLine("retrieving secret value using managed identity: " + secret.Value.Value);
