Azure Classic Administrator roles are retiring on 31 August 2024

Published date: March 15, 2024

On 31 August 2024, Azure classic administrator roles will be retired. If your organization has active Co-Administrator or Service Admin roles, you’ll need to transition to using Azure role-based access control (RBAC) roles by then. All Azure classic resources and Azure Service Manager will also be retired on that date. 

You may continue using these Azure classic admin roles until they’re retired. However, starting 3 April 2024, you’ll no longer be able to add new Co-Administrator roles through the Azure portal.   

Required action.

To avoid potential disruptions in service, transition any classic admin roles that still need access to your subscription to an Azure RBAC role by 31 August 2024, when classic admin roles will no longer be supported.
