AuthorizationPolicy Type Definition

[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change.]

Customer Insights supports authorization (authZ) through the use of Shared Access Signatures (SAS). SAS is a security technology that allows granting limited access rights to a secured, Azure-based resource. These rights are represented by a URI that encompasses in its query parameters all of the information necessary for authenticated access to the specified resource. Customer Insights applications often use SAS to gain limited access to blob storage. SAS provides for limits to resource access in the following ways:

  • Granualr access to the allowed operations: query, read, create, update, delete, etc.
  • The time period that the access is granted
  • The range of IP addresses that the requests can originate from
  • The internet protocol(s) used in the request

For more information about how SAS is used in Azure, see Using Shared Access Signatures.
