Azure Active Directory V2 PowerShell module GA

Earlier this Month Microsoft announced the General Availability of Azure Active Directory PowerShell 2.0 module, To maintain equivalent capabilities between Microsoft Graph API and PowerShell cmdlets, all these new cmdlets are built on top of the Graph API.

Two important notes from Product Team below to keep in mind:

  • The new Azure AD PowerShell v2.0 module don’t provide full functional parity with the older MSOL module yet. We’re working hard to make that happen in the coming months and will keep you updated on our progress.
  • We are not planning to publish new functionality in the MSOL PowerShell module. Over time we will implement all the functionality of the old MSOL cmdlets in the new module, and this new module contains quite a few new cmdlets that haven’t been available before.

Access the Official Blog post here: AzureAD PowerShell V2.0 is now GA

You can Check the release notes and download the Module from PowerShell Gallery here: Azure Active Directory V2 PowerShell Module - General Availability Release

Follow the instructions to install the module according to your Operating System.

Make sure you review all the new cmdlets here : Azure Active Directory V2 PowerShell module

You can install the new PS Module in your pre-production or Test environment and see how the new V2 cmdlets work in comparison with V1 cmdlets, and once V2 cmdlets have equivalent capabilities as V1 cmdlets you can start update your existing scripts accordingly.
