OAuth Category

Cmdlets are usually implemented around resource operations. The four basic operations are CREATE, READ, UPDATE and DELETE. This set of operations is known as CRUD. Most of the cmdlets support CRUD which are respectively cmdlets that start with the New/Get/Set/Remove cmdlet verbs but they also may have additional operations

Step 1 : Run commands from the CRUD group

You can CREATE objects by using New-OAuthSecurityContext cmdlet. See example below:

# Creates an OAuth2 security context object by authenticating through the authorization server using a browser. In this example, the authentication server is Microsoft Active Directory Federation Service. There is an Application Group with the ID of "my-vcenter". There is also a native client in that group with the ID of "powercli-native" and a redirect URL of "http://localhost:8844/auth".

$oauthCtx = New-OAuthSecurityContext ` -TokenEndpointUrl "https://&#60ADFS FQDN&#62/adfs/oauth2/token/" ` -AuthorizationEndpointUrl "https://&#60ADFS FQDN&#62/adfs/oauth2/authorize/" ` -RedirectUrl "http://localhost:8844/auth" ` -ClientId "powercli-native" ` -OtherArguments @{ "resource" = "my-vcenter" }
