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

A resource administrator has two options to choose from for each assignment type when configuring PIM settings for a role. For permanent assignment types, the admin can choose either Allow permanent eligible assignment or Allow permanent active assignment. For assignment types with an expiration, the administrator can choose either Expire eligible assignments after or Expire active assignments after. These options become the default maximum duration when a member is assigned to the role in PIM. When a resource admin chooses either Allow permanent eligible assignment or Allow permanent active assignment, all administrators that subsequently assign users to the protected resource can assign permanent memberships. When a resource admin chooses either Expire eligible assignments after or Expire active assignments after, the resource admin controls the assignment lifecycle. This is because, by choosing one of the expire options, all assignments will require a specified start and end date. It's important to note that assignments with a specified end date can be renewed by a resource admin as well as via a self-service request from the users with those assignments.
