How to Get the Microsoft 365 Connected User with PnP PowerShell

As I’ve alluded to before, I spend a lot of time in PowerShell, and most of it in the loving embrace of the PnP.PowerShell module. From time to time I find myself wanting to include logic in my scripts based on who the script is being run as, who connected to Microsoft 365. The majority of my connections where with the good old username and password combination. When that’s the case, I could use this to find how who I had connected as:

Connect-PnPOnline -Url

It looks like this:


That worked great, right up to the point where I didn’t just log in with username credentials. For instance, the Sympraxis tenant requires MFA so I have to connect with the –Interactive parameter:


Old Faithful let me down. Back to the drawing board. Poking around the Internet I saw some smart folks were using this method:

$ctx = Get-PnPContext
$UPN = $ctx.Web.CurrentUser.Email


I haven’t tried it yet with Certificate authentication, so I’m not sure how it reports that. The good news is that method also works with a username and password login:


I’ve created a Function, Get-TKPnPCurrentUser, to make that short and easy to use. I've added it to the TKM365Commands module​ I published in GitHub.

Research writing Conversely, EU Directives differ from EU Regulations in that the former are not directly applicable.Instead, they require implementation into UK law by domestic legislation (Acts of Parliament). Acts ofParliament, which have invoked the provisions of an EU Directive, will, in principle <a href="">Nursing assignment writer UK</a>  , continue to haveeffect even after formal withdrawal. However, given that there will no longer be a requirement to bringEU Directives into UK law, the UK must decide the extent to which the UK statute currently in place performing this function should be repealed, amended or simply retained.

Re: How to Get the Microsoft 365 Connected User with PnP PowerShell

I use PowerShell frequently, and the PnP.PowerShell module has my undivided attention for the most of that time. I occasionally find that I want to add logic to my scripts based on who is running the script and who is logged in to Microsoft 365. I used this tactic for managing the tasks of I am so happy to have this technique.
