Properly managing access to data is an essential part of any data strategy. With the cloud, this is not only more important, but also more easily achieved. In this hands-on lab scenario, your organization, Awesome Company, is reducing its on-site footprint and moving as many databases as possible to the cloud. As part of this effort, you have already migrated one of your primary sales databases, `acweb`, to Azure SQL Database. With that in place, you are now going to begin provisioning access to developers. Performing the actions of this lab will help you become familiar with configuring the firewall rules of a SQL server, creating database roles for permissions management, and creating database users and assigning roles to them.
Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:
- Allow Access From Your Company’s Network
Configure the SQL Server firewall to allow access from your company’s IP address. (Use your own IP as a mock company one.)
- Create a Developer Role
Create a role that will allow records to be read, inserted, and updated, but not deleted.
- Provision a Developer Account
Create an account for the developer that uses the previously created role.
