Which permissions or roles are needed to view the details in an application insights dashboard

Andy Cheetham 0 Reputation points

I have create an application insights dashboard to display information on a AKS cluster and resources.
I have also created a security group for the accounts that I would like to allow access to the dashboard.

Right now the users within the security group can see the dashboard, but they do not have permissions that allows the graphs charts to be populated with the data.

Which permissions / roles does this security group need to have to allow the users to view the statistics?

    Hello Andy Cheetham

    Thanks for your question.

    This issue may point to RBAC rather than the security group itself. Security groups usually control network access while RBAC controls Role based Access. You'll need to ensure they have the necessary permissions to access and read the telemetry data collected by Application Insights

    These can be found in the documentation here: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-monitor/app/resources-roles-access-control.

    For least privilege I would recommend you try the Monitoring Reader role firstly and then if that doesn't suit your needs you can go upwards.

    See Snippet of the documentation here:
