Release highlights

Administration 4.2.0 Changelog

Breaking Changes

  • Clients verify the challenge resource matches the vault domain. This should affect few customers, who can provide verify_challenge_resource=False to client constructors to disable. See for more information.

New Azure App Configuration Provider

Provides additional support above the Azure App Configuration SDK. Enables:

  • Connecting to an Azure App Configuration store
  • Selecting multiple keys using Setting Selector
  • Resolve Key Vault References when supplied AzureAppConfigurationKeyVaultOptions

The Azure App Configuration Provider once loaded returns a dictionary of key/value pairs to use in configuration.

default_credential = DefaultAzureCredential()
config = AzureAppConfigurationProvider.load(
endpoint=endpoint, credential=default_credential)
