we have some colleagues on our NOC team that if able to restart vm's, it would help our on-call team greatly by reducing the number of calls that come in when our managed servers go through patching but don't come back on line in our remote monitoring system.

    Lighthouse cannot be used with custom roles and some high impact roles like subscription owner. They probably need something like Virtual Machine Contributor.

    You could create an alert rule or workbook to monitor for any unauthorized actions.

    You might try a custom role with guest user accounts.
