Azure Cosmos DB Operator role for role-based access control (RBAC) is now available
Posted on 15 May 2019
Azure Cosmos DB now provides a new RBAC role, Cosmos DB Operator. This new role lets you provision Azure Cosmos accounts, databases and containers, but cannot access the keys that are required to access the data. This role is intended for use in scenarios where the ability to grant access to Azure Active Directory service principals to manage deployment operations for Cosmos DB is needed, including the account, database and containers.
