How to take control of an Azure Subscription without being an administrator
As a global administrator in Azure Active Directory or Microsoft 365, you often do not have access to all Azure subscriptions. IT administrators who realise projects do not give control to the permanent IT admins so that ownership does not end up with the right people.
Within Microsoft 365 and Azure Active Directory there is a possibility to take control as IT-Admin of all resource groups.
When would you access an Azure subscription?
- When someone is no longer active in your organisation.
- When you have excluded yourself from a resource group.
- If an external person with temporary access has left a resource or resource group.
