Hi Team,
We have a tenant where all users are provided contributor access. Now, if i create a resource, what is the role assigned to me?
I can see that whatever resource I create, I still inherit contributor role only. But ideally, I should get owner role for the resources I create!!
What am I missing here? Can you please route me to relevant document if any. I dont see the clear information on this.

Lets say, by default all users are given a very restrictive role -> 'reader' role for all the resources.
Now, user can have all sorts of role on the resources created by him.. so this works in azure?

    Roles are additive, but you arent going to get the owner role unless its assigned to you or its inherited:
