Video Transcription
00:01
in this video,
00:02
we will create the initiative assignment using Azure portal.
00:07
I will assign this initiative on my subscription level. In the initiative that I chose to assign is the CSCE benchmark for Azure.
00:14
Let's switch to Azure Portal and do that.
00:17
Here I am again in Azure Portal. And in order to assign the initiative, I need to go to the Policy service.
00:26
Let's find the definition for the initiative.
00:29
Click on definitions and
00:31
here I will search for CS.
00:35
This is the C s initiative that is a built in initiative in Azure.
00:40
You can look at all the policies that are included and they all match the C s version 1 10 of the benchmark.
00:53
Now
00:54
let's go on to sign the initiative.
00:57
I'll choose the scope.
00:59
The scope of this assignment will be the subscription.
01:02
I will leave the resource group open or not filled in because I would like the initiative to be evaluating everything which is within the subscription.
01:15
We can do some exclusions, but
01:18
we will do that in our next lecture.
01:23
We will enable enforcement of this initiative.
01:26
This initiative requires two parameters.
01:30
One is the region where the network watchers should be enabled.
01:33
The other one is a list of virtual machine extensions that are approved for use.
01:38
Those are the default ones.
01:42
I will change the location of the Watcher to West us, too.
01:52
I'll go next.
01:55
We'll leave that as a default. To manage the identity.
02:00
We will review the policy initiative and we will click Create.
02:05
What this will do is it will go on a sign on my subscription.
02:15
If we go back to this policy
02:17
and you can see now that the policy initiative is assigned on a subscription level
02:29
in our next video,
02:30
we will take a look at how we can evaluate those policies and exclude resource is from them.
