  • @Rayees Namath Firstly, apologies for the delay in responding here and any inconvenience this issue may have caused. I see you have posted similar issue in Stack Overflow  forum, 

    Is there any way I can import the certificate issued by my organization, import this certificate to Azure and then authenticate as part of login in azcopy login ?

    But it should be possible, AFAIK with Service Principal Authentication, to use certificates issued by Azure.

    Hope this helps!

    Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.
