This function should make it easier to create an Azure Key Vault Secret. Make sure your PowerShell session is authenticated to Azure AD using an account with proper Azure Key Vault RBAC access

FromUriContent (ParameterSet)

In this example a provided URL content is saved as a Key Vault Secret. If the content is in a GutHub Repo or GitHub Gist, the Raw URL will be resolve automatically

ConvertTo-PSKeyVaultSecret -VaultName $VaultName -Name $SecretName -Uri $GitHubUri

One thing to mention is that a GitHub Gist with multiple files will be combined automatically into a single Azure Key Vault Secret

FromClipboard (ParameterSet)

You can simply Copy some text with Ctrl+C (which sets this in your Clipboard to Paste) and use the -Clipboard switch to convert the last item in your Clipboard as an Azure Key Vault Secret

ConvertTo-PSKeyVaultSecret -VaultName $VaultName -Name $SecretName -Clipboard
