New Password Hub Family Credential Type: Azure Service Principal

Let’s roll out the red carpet, start the drumroll, and let the white doves fly as we welcome a new credential type to the Password Hub Family: Azure Service Principal.

About Azure Service Principal

An Azure Service Principal is a security identity used by user-created apps, services, and automation tools to access specific Azure resources. Think of it as a “user identity” (login and password or certificate) with a specific role, and tightly controlled permissions to access your resources. Unlike a general user identity, it only needs to be able to do specific things. It improves security if you only grant it the minimum permissions level needed to perform its management tasks.


Here are the simple steps to create your new Azure Service Principal credential:

  1. Log into Devolutions Password Hub, and click the plus sign (+) to add a new credential.

Graphical user interface

  1. In the Credentials section, select Azure Service Principal.

  1. Fill in the required information, and then click Add.
