Create a Managed Identity

Automation and Security go hand-in-hand in the Cloud services of today, and securely representing Azure Resources to the Authentication services that validate them is a common requirement. In this hands-on lab, engineers create a User Assigned Managed Identity, deploy a virtual machine member server to Azure, and then attach the Managed Identity to it. In addition to utilizing the User Assigned Identity, a System Assigned Identity will also be enabled to demonstrate automation at work.
