Azure Load Balancer - Read Access using Azure Policy

Hi Team,

I have created a policy today for Azure load balancer having read access. However, I was unsure on the parameters binding for "READ" access. Request you to validate and add the missing lines if any for the below template.

"properties": {
"displayName": "Azure Load Balancer Read access",
"policyType": "Custom",
"mode": "All",
"description": "All users should have Read access to Azure Load Balancers.\n",
"metadata": {
"category": "Network",
"createdBy": "a51a-55-4d-b6-40",
"createdOn": "2020-09-22T07:50:52.604408Z",
"updatedBy": null,
"updatedOn": null
"parameters": {},
"policyRule": {
"if": {
"field": "type",
"equals": "Microsoft.Network/LoadBalancers"
"then": {
"effect": "deny"
