Assigning roles and privileges in the Windows Azure Portal

There may be times in your organization when you need to set up additional users and privileges to manage your Windows Azure instances.

This is yet another feature which is not well documented by Microsoft, but with just a few simple steps, you can easily accomplish this:

  1. Once you log into the Windows Azure Portal, click on Subscriptions
  2. Click on the name of your Windows Azure Subscription
  3. Click on the icon in the left hand top corner for "Access"
  4. You can then see the list of existing users and from the toolbar, you can click on "Add" to add new users
  5. You will then be able to add additional roles to the users such as "Owner", "Contributor", "Reader" etc.
  6. Once you have selected a Role, you can then invite the specific user using their Microsoft account.
  7. Click on the "Invite" button and once the user logs into the Azure Portal, they should have access to manage that Windows Azure Subscription!
