U for Azure Users
To create a user in Azure you need to know the different sort of groups this is done in Azure active directory. Each user account is given a set of default permissions, these permissions help to control what access a user has. A good example is an administrator user has the permission to create user accounts and has the permission to delete user accounts. Azure has role base access control (Azure RBAC) it has lots of built-in roles that users can be assigned, here are a few of these owner, reader and contributors or you can create your own custom role and configure your own permissions.
