In 2023, we announced that the deprecation of Azure AD and MSOnline PowerShell modules would occur on March 30, 2024. We’ve since made substantial progress closing remaining parity gaps in Microsoft Graph PowerShell SDK, and as of March 30, 2024, these PowerShell modules are now deprecated:



You should migrate your scripts to Microsoft Graph PowerShell SDK as soon as possible. Information about the retirement of these modules can be found below.
