Locking Azure Resources

Arun Sirpal explains how to lock resources in Azure:

There are 2 types of lock resources in Azure.

  • Delete – Obviously you can’t delete but you can read / modify a resource, this applies to authorised users.
  • ReadOnly – Authorised users can read a resource but they cannot edit or delete it.

For this blog post I create a delete lock on one of my SQL Databases.

My overly simplistic advice:  lock any production resource which you wouldn’t want accidentally deleted.  It won’t prevent a malicious user from doing something catastrophic, but it can prevent the “Oops, I meant to click the thing above this” class of mistake.
