PIM Alert: Roles are being assigned outside of Privileged Identity Management

Hi team,

I have a question about PIM alert: Roles are being assigned outside of Privileged Identity Management. As described in below doc:


This alert is triggered when an Entra ID role is assigned outside PIM.

I suppose when assigning an Entra ID role (either from PIM or from Entra ID), PIM is automatically introduced always. I also tested using MgGraph, but failed to trigger this alert. I'm wondering how can I assign an Entra ID role 'outside' PIM (aka how can I trigger this alert for Entra ID role)?

Microsoft Entra ID
Microsoft Entra ID
A Microsoft Entra identity service that provides identity management and access control capabilities. Replaces Azure Active Directory.
