Hello team, I just came across the support for using MSI https://www.pulumi.com/registry/packages/azure-native/installation-configuration/#authenticate-using-managed-service-identity-msi The instructions are pretty bland, and before diving further to use it, wondering if anyone has an example or detailed instructions already on how to enable this?

Which CI provider are you using? We are using in github actions and we follow this tutorial https://www.chwe.at/2022/10/github-actions-with-managed-identities/. The only difference with pulumi is about pulumi flags that differs from az login action

We are using Azure Pipelines. Thank you! I'll have a look!
We are also deploying using Automation API, so... I guess if the MSI is assigned to the AKS Cluster where the API is running, perhaps this could work. Will have to see...

Hi @able-thailand-87943, do you have any input for us on what you would have liked to see in the instructions? The thing with MSI is that the configuration is basically on the Azure side. Pulumi only needs to know that it should use it.

Hi @melodic-tomato-39005, Thank you for your response. Yeah, I agree that there isn't really much to do on Pulumi side, but I do find this is a little better documented when you google "ARM_USE_MSI", and go to the first link that comes up
