Working With Azure AD in AWS and Moving from Azure SQL to RDS SQL Server

For the last week, I worked on a pretty intense migration of a fairly sizable Azure SQL instance that moved into AWS’ RDS service (running SQL Server). It was an intense project due to the timeline and size of the database. Of course, this involved access to both services, using both web consoles, CLI and native database interfaces. The client was controlling access to AWS and Azure using Azure AD, so I had to figure out federated access to the AWS API/CLI (since we built out their new environment using Terraform).
