Part 3 - Configuring RBAC (Role Base Access Control)

RBAC allows you to provide granular access to perform specific actions on Azure resources, down to an individual-resource level. You can specify which actions to perform by using either a predefined or a custom role. Once you have decided which role to use, you assign it to an Azure AD object representing the user, group, or application that should be able to carry out the role’s associated actions.

To comply with the principle of least privilege, you should avoid relying on Co-Administrators for delegation of access to your subscription. Instead, you should grant a minimum required set of permissions by using the role-based access control (RBAC) mechanism.

Step One

In the Azure portal, in the hub menu, click Resource groups.

Step Two

Step Three

On the access control (IAM) blade of the resource group, click Add.

Step Four

On the Add permissions blade, in the Role drop-down list, click Contributor.

Step Five

On the Add permissions blade, in the Select text box, type a valid Microsoft account name, click the entry representing that account appearing underneath the text box, and click Save. You might have to click Refresh to view the effect of the assignment of the role.
