All Powershell/BASH/script Azure AD join
For converting BOYD to Azure AD in the field w/o user intervention, we need a way for elevated accounts to be able to perform an Azure AD join of devices via script.... come on, this is the basics...
Think of it as MDM self-enrollment... if not that, then give us a one-click way for users to self-enroll the device.
Thanks for the feedback on this. There are several ways to do Azure AD join (OOBE, bulk enrollment and Autopilot) which provide a richer experience to join devices to Azure AD. We’re continuously working to enhance those, so currently this is unplanned for the near future. Please continue to vote to help us prioritize

Ravi - This is a cop-out by Microsoft. We don't need a "richer experience", we need a hands free way to migrate systems to AAD join without having to wipe out the user state on the device as both Bulk Enrollment and Windows Autopilot require OOBE. I have clients that simply want to disjoin from AD and then AAD join. They do not want to have to effectively do a wipe and reload to migrate. They will get cleaner systems with a break/fix reinstall or part of their hardware refresh cycle. This is a particular pain point for the SMB sector who may not have the same resources as a large enterprise to pull off a W&R of all their devices to migrate.

please, i need a cmdlet to join computers to aad using PowerShell.

There is not a bulk enrollment option, or else we wouldn't be asking this question. We're trying to automate a way to join hundreds of devices to an AD service that is already getting information about those devices from our other AD service. OOBE and Autopilot only provide an answer for new devices. We need a solution that allows us to add CURRENT devices to Azure AD without requiring users doing the configuration or IT touching every device.

Please add a PowerShell command for this, how could you guys even ship Azure AD without a command for domain joining??? Bulk enrollment isn't feasible because you have to create a crazy package for each domain with a specialized (and very buggy) GUI based tool (and even then the packages don't always work). -- Currently, in the field, to perform this process we're automating Windows UI clicks with a testing framework, and it's extremely annoying.
One ******* wrong answer by a user and I get ****** with this problem from across the country
Why can't we have a single powershell command to join device to Azure AD.

I can't believe that it's almost 2019 and it's still not possible to join an already-provisioned device to AAD with no user interaction necessary. I have to believe that either (a) the process used to join the device is so hacky that it can't feasibly be exposed via an API, or (b) giving administrators this ability doesn't align with Microsoft's business model for some reason.
I will give al my votes for this one. There really should be a powershell option for Azure AD Join!!

There should defently be a way to make an Azure AD join using Powershell. For example, an SCCM OSD task sequence could be created in which the client is taken directly into the Azure AD.
