Azure DevOps: using client id/secret to deploy

Do you want to use Azure Devops for deployments, but do not want to use a username/password? Try using a client id/secret instead.

NOTE: This would be the preferred method for enterprise deployments to not worry about a password expiring or if you are using MFA for users.

You can setup a build pipeline and use the parameters from here:


clientid Sharepoint app client id guid
clientsecret Sharepoint app client secret



As long as the SharePoint app allows App Only access, you can then run the pipeline and have it deploy the artifacts.
