How to Retrieve a Password in Azure LAPS


In my previous blog I showed how to setup LAPS for Azure AD. With everything configured correctly, now it is time to retrieve the password for the local administrator account that our policy addresses. To retrieve the password, go to your Azure portal and navigate to Devices > All Devices > Local administrator password recovery (Preview) and find the selected device. Click on Show local administrator password beside the listed device. Navigate to the right and either show the password or click the copy button as shown in the screenshot below.

Armed with the specified password, you can now log into the device using the local administrator credentials and execute tasks that necessitate local admin privileges.
