At a time when security breaches seem to be an everyday occurrence, it’s become more and more important to protect resources with more than just a username and password. It’s even more important to protect resources from INTERNAL threats. By implementing Azure AD Privileged Identity Management, organizations can protect their resources with improved security features, and even keep an eye on what legitimate administrators are doing.
In this course, you’ll learn how to implement Azure AD Privileged Identity Management. We’ll start the course by touching on an overview of what Azure AD Privileged Identity Management is and what it offers. We will then work through the deployment of PIM and how it works with multi-factor authentication. As we work through some demos, you will learn how to enable PIM and how to navigate tasks in PIM.
We’ll then cover the activation of roles and the assignment of those roles, including permanent roles and just-in-time roles. We’ll also cover the concepts of updating and removing role assignments, reinforcing these concepts through demonstrations.
We’ll round out the course with supported management scenarios, configuring PIM management access, and how to process requests.
- Enable PIM
- Activate a PIM role
- Configure just-in-time resource access
- Configure permanent access to resources
- Configure PIM management access
- Configure time-bound resource access
- Create a Delegated Approver account
- Process pending approval requests
- People who want to become Azure cloud architects
- People who are preparing to take Microsoft’s AZ-101 exam
- Moderate knowledge of Azure Active Directory

Azure Active Directory Privileged Identity Management simplifies management of privileged access to resources in Azure AD and other services such as Office 365 and Intune. A user that has been made eligible for an administrative role can activate that role when he or she needs to perform privileged actions controlled by the role. A good example would be a user who on occasion manages Office 365 features. In such a case, the organization's privileged role administrator, instead of making that user a permanent global admin, could opt to instead make the user eligible for an Azure AD role like Exchange Online Administrator. This user could then request to activate the role only when he or she needs its privileges. The administrative control would then last for a predetermined period of time.
