Azure AD RBAC

The URL in the tweet below talks about using a feature I’ve been talking about here at the UW—the emerging Azure AD RBAC capabilities.

 

The blog post below talks about using this feature in the context of a web app hosted in an Azure Website, but the capability is designed to be used by a web app hosted anywhere.

 

The post only talks about the 3 built-in roles, but the capability is designed so you can define your own custom roles—they just haven’t released that option yet.

 

If folks are interested in reading up on this, here are some good starting points:
