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.

Transcript

I hope you've enjoyed learning about managing Azure subscriptions and resource groups. Let's review what you've learned. We kicked things off by covering key roles within an Azure subscription, including the contributor role, the owner role, reader, and user access administrator. You learned what each role does and how to assign and change roles.

We then dove into subscription policies and what role they play within a subscription. Next, we took a look at resource groups and how to manage those. You learned about resource policies and how to assign them. You also learned what Resource Locks are and how to use them to secure Azure resources.

Coming down the homestretch, we cover tagging and how to use tags to group resources together. Rounding out the course, you learned how to move resources between resource groups and how to delete resource groups altogether.

To learn more about managing Azure subscriptions and resource groups, be sure to review the documentation published by Microsoft. Be sure to also watch for new Microsoft Azure courses on Cloud Academy because we're always publishing new ones. Please give this course a rating, and if you have any questions or comments, please let us know. Thanks for watching and happy learning.
