Role-Based Access Control, or RBAC, is how you can manage access to resources in Azure. RBAC works by creating role assignments that can apply to different levels of your tenant. A role assignment is broken down into three elements: the security principal, the role definition, and the scope you apply it to.

Custom roles in Azure's role-based access control provide the flexibility for any organization to create roles that are not covered by the built-in roles.

We will also look at common scenarios when troubleshooting role-based access control in Azure.

  • Configure access to resources in Azure
  • Implement a custom role
