Course Overview
Hello everyone. My name is Gary Grudzinskas, and I want to welcome you to my course, Using Microsoft Azure Resource Groups. I am a consultant and an author, and I specialize in helping companies move their infrastructure up to the cloud. Microsoft has a great deal of resources in Azure that you can utilize for your enterprise, but how do you keep track of them? How do you organize them? How do you secure them? Well, in this course, I'm going to show you how. You will learn how to set up resource groups, use tags, locks, access control and policies to control resources, and you'll learn how to maintain your resource scripts. By the end of this course, you will be able to control and manage all of your company's Azure resources. So please join me on this fun and informative course to make the most of using Microsoft Azure resource groups here, at Pluralsight.

Securing and Controlling for Resource Groups
Welcome to module 2, Securing and Controlling Resource Groups. Now that we have built our resource groups, it's time to go in there and assert some authority over those resource groups. And we're going to do that by four different mechanisms. The first one, Azure resource tags. We're going to tag some of these resource groups. We use this to organize those resource groups. Then resource locks. What these do is save resources from the accidental deletion or accidental changes that you didn't mean to do. Access control, this is basically RBACs, or role-based access control, for Microsoft Azure. We grant access to resources through these. And then the Azure policy. What we're doing with this is we're enforcing rules on the resources contained within our resource group. Let's start off with resource tags.

Maintaining Resource Groups
In this module, Maintaining Resource Groups, this is what we are going to do. We're going to be deploying a resource group with the template, moving resources from one resource group to another resource group, redeploying a resource group through a template, setting up an alert, taking a look at resource group metrics, and then, finally, and kind of sadly, deleting a resource group through all the different ways that we can do that. So welcome to this module. We begin by deploying a brand-new resource group through a template.
