Set Access Control for the AAD user

The Azure Active Directory (AAD) organization (Work or School) account that you use to login to RCL must either be :

  • An ‘Administrator’ or ‘Owner’ to your Azure subscription
  • Have a role of ‘Owner’ or ‘Contributor’ to your Azure subscription

If either of these requirements are not met, you will not be able to use RCL to manage your Azure resources.

You may also experience an error message.


In this article, you will learn how to set access control for your AAD organization account (AAD user) to your Azure subscription.

You can select or create a new AAD account in your AAD tenant to sign in to RCL. Refer to the following link for more information :

Subscription Administrator

You can determine if your AAD organization account is an ‘Administrator’ or ‘Owner’ on the Azure subscription by logging in to the Azure portal with the same AAD account that you use to login to to the RCL app.

  • In the Azure portal, search for ‘Subscriptions’ and navigate to it


  • Select a subscription


  • After you select a subscription, click on the ‘My permissions’ link for the subscription


Set Owner or Contributor roles

If the AAD account that you use to log in to the RCL is not an administrator in the Azure subscription, you need to add the AAD account as an ‘Owner’ or ‘Contributor’ to the Azure subscription.

  • Click on the the ‘Access Control (IAM)’ link in the Subscription section

  • Click on the ‘Add’ link at the top to add a new role

  • Add a “Contributor’ or ‘Owner’ role assignment to your subscription for the AAD account that you use to login to RCL app


  • You will see the new role assignment in the ‘Role assignments’ tab


You must do this for each Azure subscription that you want to use in the RCL app.

Test Access Control

Once access control is properly set up for the AAD account that you use to login to RCL, you can open any page that requires subscription access to test it.

If the access control was correctly set, you will see the subscription in the drop down list.
