#AzureAD new feature in preview: Roles and Administrators

One more cool feature in Azure Active Directory to make managing and controlling user assignments easier than ever in Azure AD. It provides you with a complete list and description of the built-in directory roles, in case you need to know all the details related to a specific role.

It can also point you to the documentation that you need to read, in order to better understand and utilize the roles. For example, you may need to know how many Global Admins you have or what a specific role does and if you’ve assigned that role to users.

So let’s see how it works.

By using the Azure AD portal, start by clicking Roles and administrators to display the complete list and a brief description of all the built-in directory roles. You can also see your active Azure AD role assignment (if you have one) and can click Your role to access the list of your active assigned roles:

1

Just click on a role to see the users that have assigned that role:

and then click Description to see details about that specific role:

You can also move to check the details of an Azure AD user, check the roles assigned, but also assign additional roles to this user:

Support for Azure AD PIM

If you use Azure AD Privileged Identity Management (PIM) to limit standing admin access, there is a dedicated link to a brand-new experience in those blades as well.

If your organization hasn’t enabled PIM, click the Manage in PIM button for information on what PIM can do to protect your administrators and sign up for a trial.

 

And remember, we offer a list of Azure online courses, so you can get the proper training and gest certified on Microsoft Azure. You can see the courses offered here.

 

Thanks for your time!
