Issue/Introduction

Symptoms:

Customers who are using vCenter Server version 8.0.2 and configured Azure AD for authenticating, they will be able to authenticate using vCenter GUI but, when authenticating using PowerCLI cmdlet New-OAuthSecurityContext will fail with the error "Authorized party is not valid".


Cause

This is a known issue - we have identified that due some limitations in the internal APIs, it is currently not possible for client applications other than the vCenter GUI to authenticate using Azure AD.

Resolution

The fix would be available in the upcoming release of vCenter version.


Workaround:

No Workaround for now.
