Data Export Service API: add support for application accounts authentication


Customers and partners can currently use application accounts (cliend Id / client secret) in Azure DevOps for their Dynamics 365 CE implementations, to automate deployments and offer a fully automated CI/CD ALM story.

This works well with solution deployments and a number of scripted actions done in PowerShell.



Data Export Service API doesn't currently support application accounts authentication.

Instead, it requires a user account (login / password).



Can Data Export Service API support for application accounts be added to the backlog / roadmap?

As of now this prevents a fully automated deployment of Data Export Service profiles and configuration.

This would be super-helpful - the Ask in the OP's post is exactly what I need. Being able to be automatically consistent across environments would be perfect.
