Hello community,

When creating a VM in Azure, under the 'Management' tab, I can choose 'Login with Azure AD'. 196922-image.png

Is there a policy where I can audit whether my VMs have this feature enabled or not? Or is there a policy to even enforce this box to be ticked when creating a VM? According to Microsoft Documentation https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/devices/howto-vm-sign-in-azure-ad-windows under 'Using Azure Policy to ensure standards and assess compliance' it should be possible to at least audit but I haven't found any suitable built-in or custom policies yet. The only policies I found was to disable local users for windows or linux, therefore to only allow Azure AD Users. But I would like to keep a local user as an admnistrator. Therefore this policy is not suitable for my case.

Thanks in advance and best regards!

    Hi,
    There is not such policy out of the box but you can for example duplicate one of the built-in policies like: Log Analytics Extension should be enabled for listed virtual machine images and modify it for the AAD extension. Specifically you in that policy you can replace "equals": "Microsoft.EnterpriseCloud.Monitoring" with "equals": "Microsoft.Azure.ActiveDirectory" for Windows and "equals": "Microsoft.Azure.ActiveDirectory.LinuxSSH" for Linux.
