View roles/policies and requests for permission in the Remediation dashboard

The Remediation dashboard in Permissions Management provides an overview of roles/policies, permissions, a list of existing requests for permissions, and requests for permissions you have made.

This article provides an overview of the components of the Remediation dashboard.

Note

To view the Remediation dashboard, your must have Viewer, Controller, or Administrator permissions. To make changes on this dashboard, you must have Controller or Administrator permissions. If you don't have these permissions, contact your system administrator.

Note

Microsoft Azure uses the term role for what other cloud providers call policy. Permissions Management automatically makes this terminology change when you select the authorization system type. In the user documentation, we use role/policy to refer to both.
