General availability: Azure RBAC for Kubernetes Authorization in AKS
Published date: May 25, 2021
With Azure role-based access control (RBAC) for Kubernetes authorization, you can achieve unified management and access control across Azure and AKS resources.
With this capability, you can now manage RBAC for AKS and its resources using Azure or native Kubernetes mechanisms. When enabled, this integration allows you to use Azure Active Directory (AAD) users, groups, or service principals as subjects in Kubernetes RBAC. This frees you from having to separately manage user identities and credentials for Kubernetes.
