Azure Role Based Access Control and VS Server Explorer RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I try to access an Azure Subscription via Server Explorer in VS2013 and my account does not have full access to the entire subscription but just to some resources (using RBAC of the new portal) I get a yellow esclamation mark in "Manage Microsoft Azure Subscription" saying "This subscription is not supported by Server Explorer".

    What does this mean? That VS server explorer doesn't support RBAC??

  • Hello pmonte,

    This forum is about install/uninstall of Visual Studio. I think your question is not related to the topic of this forum. I'm trying to consult some other forum moderators about your issue.

    Best regards,

    Barry

  • Hi,

    As I know, Visual Studio doesn't support RBAC at currently, I would suggest you vote this feedback at feedback forum: https://feedback.azure.com/forums/170031-sdk-and-tools/suggestions/6631677-allow-role-based-access-to-azure-portal-via-visual. If you want to login in Visual Studio, please try to use Azure Subscription or Azure co-administrator, refer to https://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/documentation/articles/billing-add-change-azure-subscription-administrator/ for more details about how to add co-administrator.

    Best Regards,

    to say:

    This looked great and so we decided to join the subscriptions we had and rely on RBAC to handle developers rights on various resources. It worked great BUT there is a HUGE BUT, watch out! Visual Studio Server Explorer doesn't support RBAC. This means, for example, that now users that don't have full rights on the subscription cannot remote debug. I think this is something you should have stated clearly in the announcment, we now have to get back to multiple subscriptions (and moving resources between  subscriptions is not always easy).

    I strongly think that you should inform of such limitation.
