Azure PowerShell "Your Azure credentials have not been set up or have expired, please run Add-AzureAccount to set up your Azure credentials"

Azure PowerShell throws the error "Your Azure credentials have not been set up or have expired, please run Add-AzureAccount to set up your Azure credentials" when you try to run a PS command against an Azure service. This is using both the Get-AzurePublishSettingsFile and the Add-AzureAccount methods to authenticate to the Azure tenancy.


This is because there are a number of stale entries related to your account cached on the administrative device you are using, to display all of the cached accounts use the following command;

Get-AzureAccount


The following command can be used to delete all of the cached Azure credentials from the device;

foreach ($AzureAccount in (Get-AzureAccount).ID) {Remove-AzureAccount $AzureAccount}


Then try Add-AzureAccount, enter your credentials.


And you should re-authenticate to the Azure tenancy properly. You can now run any commands without being faced with the same error.
