Description

The New-AzureRmPolicyAssignment cmdlet creates a policy assignment. Specify a policy and scope.

Examples

Example 1: Policy assignment at resource group level

PS C:\> $ResourceGroup = Get-AzureRmResourceGroup -Name 'ResourceGroup11'
PS C:\> $Policy = Get-AzureRmPolicyDefinition -Name 'VirtualMachinePolicy'
PS C:\> New-AzureRmPolicyAssignment -Name 'VirtualMachinePolicyAssignment' -PolicyDefinition $Policy -Scope $ResourceGroup.ResourceId

The first command gets a resource group named ResourceGroup11 by using the Get-AzureRMResourceGroup cmdlet and stores it in the $ResourceGroup variable. The second command gets the policy definition named VirtualMachinePolicy by using the Get-AzureRmPolicyDefinition cmdlet and stores it in the $Policy variable. The final command assigns the policy in $Policy at the level of the resource group identified by the ResourceId property of $ResourceGroup.

Example 2: Policy assignment at resource group level with policy parameter object

PS C:\> $ResourceGroup = Get-AzureRmResourceGroup -Name 'ResourceGroup11'
PS C:\> $Policy = Get-AzureRmPolicyDefinition -BuiltIn | Where-Object {$_.Properties.DisplayName -eq 'Allowed locations'}
PS C:\> $Locations = Get-AzureRmLocation | where displayname -like '*east*'
PS C:\> $AllowedLocations = @{'listOfAllowedLocations'=($Locations.location)}
PS C:\> New-AzureRmPolicyAssignment -Name 'RestrictLocationPolicyAssignment' -PolicyDefinition $Policy -Scope $ResourceGroup.ResourceId -PolicyParameterObject $AllowedLocations

The first command gets a resource group named ResourceGroup11 by using the Get-AzureRMResourceGroup cmdlet. The command stores that object in the $ResourceGroup variable. The second command gets the built-in policy definition for allowed locations by using the Get-AzureRmPolicyDefinition cmdlet. The command stores that object in the $Policy variable. The third and fourth commands create an object containing all Azure regions with "east" in the name. The commands store that object in the $AllowedLocations variable. The final command assigns the policy in $Policy at the level of a resource group using the policy parameter object in $AllowedLocations. The ResourceId property of $ResourceGroup identifies the resource group.

Example 3: Policy assignment at resource group level with policy parameter file

Create a file called AllowedLocations.json in the local working directory with the following content.

{
    "listOfAllowedLocations":  {
      "value": [
        "westus",
        "westeurope",
        "japanwest"
      ]
    }
}

PS C:\> $ResourceGroup = Get-AzureRmResourceGroup -Name 'ResourceGroup11'
PS C:\> $Policy = Get-AzureRmPolicyDefinition -BuiltIn | Where-Object {$_.Properties.DisplayName -eq 'Allowed locations'}
PS C:\> New-AzureRmPolicyAssignment -Name 'RestrictLocationPolicyAssignment' -PolicyDefinition $Policy -Scope $ResourceGroup.ResourceId -PolicyParameter .\AllowedLocations.json

The first command gets a resource group named ResourceGroup11 by using the Get-AzureRMResourceGroup cmdlet and stores it in the $ResourceGroup variable. The second command gets the built-in policy definition for allowed locations by using the Get-AzureRmPolicyDefinition cmdlet and stores it in the $Policy variable. The final command assigns the policy in $Policy at the resource group identified by the ResourceId property of $ResourceGroup using the policy parameter file AllowedLocations.json from the local working directory.

Example 4: Policy assignment with a managed identity

PS C:\> $ResourceGroup = Get-AzureRmResourceGroup -Name 'ResourceGroup11'
PS C:\> $Policy = Get-AzureRmPolicyDefinition -Name 'VirtualMachinePolicy'
PS C:\> New-AzureRmPolicyAssignment -Name 'VirtualMachinePolicyAssignment' -PolicyDefinition $Policy -Scope $ResourceGroup.ResourceId -Location 'eastus' -AssignIdentity

The first command gets a resource group named ResourceGroup11 by using the Get-AzureRMResourceGroup cmdlet and stores it in the $ResourceGroup variable. The second command gets the policy definition named VirtualMachinePolicy by using the Get-AzureRmPolicyDefinition cmdlet and stores it in the $Policy variable. The final command assigns the policy in $Policy to the resource group. A managed identity is automatically created and assigned to the policy assignment.
