Microsoft Azure Data Protection Management Client Library for Python

Project description

Microsoft Azure SDK for Python

This is the Microsoft Azure Data Protection Management Client Library. This package has been tested with Python 3.7+. For a more complete view of Azure libraries, see the azure sdk python release.


Azure SDK Python packages support for Python 2.7 has ended 01 January 2022. For more information and questions, please refer to

Getting started


Install the package

pip install azure-mgmt-dataprotection
pip install azure-identity


By default, Azure Active Directory token authentication depends on correct configure of following environment variables.

  • AZURE_CLIENT_ID for Azure client ID.
  • AZURE_TENANT_ID for Azure tenant ID.
  • AZURE_CLIENT_SECRET for Azure client secret.

In addition, Azure subscription ID can be configured via environment variable AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID.

With above configuration, client can be authenticated by following code:

from azure.identity import DefaultAzureCredential
from azure.mgmt.dataprotection import DataProtectionClient
import os

sub_id = os.getenv("AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID")
client = DataProtectionClient(credential=DefaultAzureCredential(), subscription_id=sub_id)


Code samples for this package can be found at Data Protection Management on and Samples Repo
