Azure Active Directory PowerShell Module V2 is available

Today, just a short info for Azure Active Directory guys: #AzureAD PowerShell V2.0 is now GA! In this blogpost, Alex Simons and Rob de Jong inform that the PowerShell Azure AD v2.0 cmdlets are now generally available (GA). See the details at the Technet Blog and at Azure Active Directory V2 PowerShell Module - General Availability Release 2.0.0.33.

Prerequisites

Azure Active Directory V2 PowerShell Module can be installed on Windows starting with versions of Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 and up.

To get the new PowerShell modules from the Gallery requires the latest version of the PowerShellGet module. PowerShellGet is available in Windows 10, in Windows Management Framework (WMF) 5.0, or in the MSI-based installer (for PowerShell 3 and 4). Additionally, you need to have PowerShell 3.0 or newer and the .NET Framework 4.5 or newer installed. You can install .NET Framework 4.5 from here. Find the documentation at The PowerShell Gallery.

The current version of the AzureAD modules is 2.0.0.33 from November, 21st 2016.

To install the new module, follow this link to the PowerShell Gallery. Installing a PowerShell module from the PowerShell gallery requires some additional components to be installed on your system. If you are running a computer with the Windows 10 OS, these components are already present and you can simply open a PowerShell window as an administrator and type Install-Module AzureAD”, The module will be installed on your computer and imported in your session.

For other Windows operating systems, please refer to the documentation about the PowerShell Gallery.

Install it

Open PowerShell as Administrator and download the module with

Save-Module -Name AzureAD -Path <path>

Then, install it (with Administrator privileges on your machine) with

Install-Module -Name AzureAD

Done.

to get a list of all groups.
