  1. Python SDK Should Reuse Existing Authentication Token

    The Azure Python SDK generates a new authentication token with every API request. As each SDK API interaction consists of two requests, new auth token generation and the original request, this more than doubles the API round trip time (rtt). These additional tokens are also undesirable, as they both pollute logfiles and expose the Azure subscriber to a larger surface area for brute force attacks.

      • Azure CLI no longer returns proper return code values

        Azure CLI no longer returns proper return code values on exit, breaking existing devops scripting relying on this (from previous Azure CLI versions). Azure CLI to should return proper return code values in keeping with prior versions.
