Time to break into a little bit of technical review I think. So today I have spent some time reviewing from the ground up all the key learning points around Azure Identity and Governance. I’m following the MS Learn resources for the AZ-104 exam that can be found here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/learn/paths/az-104-manage-identities-governance/
- Creating Azure Users and Groups in Azure
- Managing Users and Groups in Azure
- Self Service Password Reset (SSPR)
- Subscription Access using Roles Based Access Control (RBAC)
- Securing Azure Resources using Roles Based Access Control (RBAC)
- Create Custom Roles for Azure Resources using RBAC
- Control and Organise Azure Resources with Azure Resource Manager (ARM)
- Predicting Costs and Optimising spend in Azure
- Analyse Cost and Creating Budgets with Azure Cost Management
- Moving Azure Resources to another Resource Group
- Manage Device Identity with Azure AD Join and Enterprise Site Roaming
So looking at the content described above there is a lot to get through! There is an estimate of time to run through all the resources of around 4.5 hours on average, if you are familiar with some areas then try not to skip through them too fast as you may miss some added content and information.
The Microsoft Learn website has been drastically overhauled and content has been created in Ernest over the last few months to the extent that there are now a huge amount of new sessions and learning paths that I haven’t seen. I’m a big advocate of learning things from the ground up, just so that you don’t skip over that small little detail that you might think you already know!
Technology in general is changing at such a fast pace, and this is even more so with Microsoft technologies with new features to Azure and its components been developed and release in Preview or General Availability at a break neck speed. So, what you thought you knew yesterday may not necessarily be the case today!
In all honesty I had started looking at some of the earlier modules and then have spent a good 4-5 hours this morning and into the afternoon working through the other modules. It has been a great refresher of some areas, and great to run through this new content that explains some of the more new feature sets that I haven’t had a great deal of exposure to as of yet.
My Main ReadMe Page is all set up with a bit about me!
The guys at 100DaysofCloud have set up the GitHub repo to be cloned and also have a great repo containing ideas and areas to collaborate on: https://github.com/100DaysOfCloud/100DaysOfCloudIdeas
My Github Journey tracker can be found here: https://github.com/jonnychipz/100DaysOfCloud
Please Watch/Star my repo and feel free to comment of contribute to anything I push! I really look forward to hearing from anyone who is going to jump on the journey around the same time as me! Lets see where I get to in 100 days!
I would encourage others to jump on this journey, I’m not sure that I will be able to commit every day for 100 days, but as long as I can complete 100 days that will be great!
