Description

As an IT professional tasked with managing resources in Azure, it’s important to understand key administrative roles and permissions within a subscription and within a resource group. It’s also important to know how to leverage Role Based Access Control (RBAC) for managing such administrative roles and permissions.

In the first part of this course, you will learn about Azure subscriptions.  You will learn about key roles within a subscription, including contributor, owner, reader, and user access administrator. You’ll also learn how to manage these roles by using RBAC. We’ll also cover subscription policies and the role they play in the management of an Azure subscription.

In the second part of the course, we’ll talk about resource groups in Azure.  We’ll touch on what they do and how they are managed. You will learn how to secure resources within a resource group via resource policies and resource locks.  You’ll also learn about resource tagging and how it can be used to manage and group Azure resources.

Rounding out this course, we’ll cover the process of moving resources from one resource group to another, as well as the deletion of resource groups altogether.
