Azure Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) enables fine-grained access management for Azure. Using RBAC, you can grant only the amount of access that users need to perform their jobs. SoftNAS VMs on Azure are compatible with RBAC, allowing for RBAC defined roles to be integrated. While Azure RBAC roles and access management are recognized by SoftNAS, the interactions available are limited to actions with direct correlations. RBAC for SoftNAS on Azure will primarily be used for defining user's access to disk add and routing table functions.
Prerequisite: Windows Azure Active Directory must be configured. If it is not, follow the instructions provided here.
In order for RBAC for Azure to function within SoftNAS, a SoftNAS user must be joined to the Azure domain.
