Adding User Access Control To Azure Websites In The Azure Portal

Microsoft Azure Websites supports the Role-Based Access Control feature and allows  you to have much greater control over whom you allow access to your resources and what level of access each person has.

Five levels of Role

  • Owner Role – Has full admin access to the site and can perform all operations.

  • Contributor Role – Can deploy code, start/stop the site, swap deployments, delete the site, etc. Cannot change pricing plan or perform some other admin functions.

  • Reader Role – Can view the website in the portal, but cannot make any changes to it.

  • User Access Administrator - Can manage user access to Azure resources.

  • Website Contributor - Can manage websites, but not the web plans to which they are connected.
