About this Hands-on Lab

In this hands-on lab, you are tasked with gathering the role definitions and role assignments for your organization. You do not have access to the portal, so you must collect this information via SSH connection, by using a Linux VM and a service principal. Once access to the Azure subscription has been gained, use the Azure CLI to collect the required information, and output to a file so you can email it to your manager.

Learning Objectives

Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:

Log in to Azure using the Service Principal
  1. Once connected to the Linux VM, perform the az login command with the --service-principal flag to login to the Azure account.
List the Role Definitions and Role Assignments
  1. Enter the Azure CLI command to list the role definitions and output to a file named roleinfo.json.
  2. Enter the Azure CLI command to list the role assignments and append the output to the same file.

Additional Resources

You have been given login credentials to a Linux VM and a service principal. Connect to the VM with the credentials, and using the service principal, access the Azure subscription.
