Action required: Transition from Azure classic administrator roles to RBAC roles

Gary Newbrook 5 Reputation points

And again, I waste precious time hunting down the thing I have been mandated to do by another "Action Required" email only to find that the instructions guide me to a "your subscription doesn't allow that choose another subscription account" or some such nonsense - and that's when the "official documentation" actually refers to what I am seeing in real life!!!

Microsoft, when you change the way you do things for the benefit of your very valuable E3 subscriptions out there, please remember that there are many, many subscriptions containing a couple of licenses in a single business managed by a single techie whose job is not to solely manage a single element within the Microsoft behemoth that is Microsoft 365.

We are trying our best to keep up with your whims, but you need to provide better resources to enable us to do it.

This email should be backed up a with a simple page stating what a classic administrator role looks like, what RBAC means and what it looks like (an example would be nice), and how to enable the change within all of your many ways in - that includes us lowly Business Standard subscriptions and above.

Microsoft, you have many, very intelligent developers and project managers who are responsible for a very small part of the whole Microsoft 365 eco-system... and they are all experts in their own little bit. You are expecting everybody else who is administering it to be experts in every single element of the system... This can't happen.

After all that, can anybody explain to me, with a three license subscription of Microsoft 365 Business Standard costing £123 per license per anum, what I need to do with this email please?

Thank you
