You can share Azure Portal dashboard to other users with having access to the same Azure Subscription. You can create your personal dashboards such as Azure service health dashboard, or any other Azure services monitoring or data flow dashboard and it could be useful sharing the dashboard with other in case they need same. In this post let’s have a quick look at how we can share a dashboard and give necessary access to users.
Share Azure Portal Dashboard
To share Azure Portal dashboard, log in to Azure Portal, navigate to your specific dashboard and click on the Share link.
Publish the Azure dashboard as “Azure Resource” to provide access control. Then provide Role Based Access Control (RBAC) to the Dashboard Resource.
The following blade will appear post you click on the Share link from the dashboard. Provide all the required information and then Publish the resource. As you can see in the following image, a side panel appears to the right of the dashboard. In that pane, you fill out some information and click the Publish button.
When the dashboard is published successfully, Sharing + Access control blade will have new information along with “Manage Users” option.
Manage Users will take you to the Access Control (IAM) screen to provide access to required users.
Azure Portal Dashboard as an Azure Resource
When you publish and share the Azure Dashboard, it published as an Azure Resource. You can alternatively provide access to the user by navigating to “Access Control (IAM)” option from this resource as well.
Unshare the Azure Portal Dashboard
When an Azure Portal is already shared, you will find “Unshare” option instead of “Share”.
To unshare the dashboard, click on “Unshare” and the then click on “Unpublish” from the blade. This will make your dashboard again private.
After you share your dashboard, any further customization would require a publish before it is accessible to others to whom you have shared the dashboard.
