Hi 👋. I was hoping someone may have a suggestion about how I could authenticate to the Azure Native Provider using the context of an AAD user that has authenticated to my API. For context I was looking to build an API/Worker leveraging the automation API to run Pulumi commands logged in as the user who has submitted the request. I would need some way of configuring the Azure provider to run as this user. If I use the Microsoft ADAL libraries in my API, I will only get back a JWT which I don't believe will fit to one of the supported authentication options to the provider. Any suggestions or if this maybe a feature request?
