Creating Custom Role for Azure Account

If you do not want to use built-in Azure roles, you can create a custom role with minimal permissions.

To create a custom role, do the following:

  1. Run the following script in Azure PowerShell:

Import-Module AzureRM.Resources
$role = [Microsoft.Azure.Commands.Resources.Models.Authorization.PSRoleDefinition]::new()
$role.Name = 'Veeam Restore Operator'
$role.Description = 'Permissions for Veeam Direct Restore to Microsoft Azure'
$role.IsCustom = $true
$permissions = @(
'Microsoft.Storage/storageAccounts/listkeys/action',
'Microsoft.Storage/storageAccounts/read',
'Microsoft.Network/locations/checkDnsNameAvailability/read',
'Microsoft.Network/virtualNetworks/read',
'Microsoft.Network/virtualNetworks/subnets/join/action',
'Microsoft.Network/publicIPAddresses/read',
'Microsoft.Network/publicIPAddresses/write',
'Microsoft.Network/publicIPAddresses/delete',
'Microsoft.Network/publicIPAddresses/join/action',
'Microsoft.Network/networkInterfaces/read',
'Microsoft.Network/networkInterfaces/write',
'Microsoft.Network/networkInterfaces/delete',
'Microsoft.Network/networkInterfaces/join/action',
'Microsoft.Network/networkSecurityGroups/read',
'Microsoft.Network/networkSecurityGroups/write',
'Microsoft.Network/networkSecurityGroups/delete',
'Microsoft.Network/networkSecurityGroups/join/action',
'Microsoft.Compute/locations/vmSizes/read',
'Microsoft.Compute/locations/usages/read',
'Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/read',
'Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/write',
'Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/delete',
'Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/start/action',
'Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/deallocate/action',
'Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/instanceView/read',
'Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/extensions/read',
'Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/extensions/write',

'Microsoft.Compute/disks/read',

'Microsoft.Compute/disks/write',
'Microsoft.Resources/checkResourceName/action',
'Microsoft.Resources/subscriptions/resourceGroups/read',
'Microsoft.Resources/subscriptions/resourceGroups/write',
'Microsoft.Resources/subscriptions/locations/read'
)
$role.Actions = $permissions
$role.NotActions = (Get-AzureRmRoleDefinition -Name 'Virtual Machine Contributor').NotActions
$subs = '/subscriptions/00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000'  #use your subscription ID
$role.AssignableScopes = $subs
New-AzureRmRoleDefinition -Role $role

  1. Assign the created role to the required Azure User. For details, see the Manage access to Azure resources using RBAC and the Azure portal section in the RBAC for Azure resources documentation.
  2. In the Subscription step of the Initial Configuration wizard, select Use existing account and select the Azure user with the assigned role. For details, see Adding Microsoft Azure Account.

Creating Custom Role for Azure Account Note:

  • You must use Connect-AzureRmAccount and Get-AzureRmSubscription to input the subscription ID within the script.
  • The script is provided for Microsoft Azure PowerShell version 5.1.1. The naming of commands may vary for other versions of Microsoft Azure PowerShell.

I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:

 

I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
