Remarks

For best performance use the objectId option to reference the Azure AD application registration to get. If you use appId or name, this command will first need to find the corresponding object ID for that application.

If the command finds multiple Azure AD application registrations with the specified app name, it will prompt you to disambiguate which app it should use, listing the discovered object IDs.

If you want to store the information about the Azure AD app registration, use the --save option. This is useful when you build solutions connected to Microsoft 365 and want to easily manage app registrations used with your solution. When you use the --save option, after you get the app registration, the command will write its ID and name to the .m365rc.json file in the current directory. If the file already exists, it will add the information about the App registration to it if it's not already present, allowing you to track multiple apps. If the file doesn't exist, the command will create it.
