Container Inspection - Azure


This document describes how to create access on Azure portal that can be configured in HIAB to discover and scan container images that resides in an Azure Container Registry.


The Azure Portal is a single portal where applications can be accessed and managed in one place. Access on the Azure portal can be created so that it can be configured in HIAB to discover and scan container images that resides in an Azure Container Registry. 


The current implementation of discovering and scanning an Azure container registry does NOT yet support Microsoft Azure RBAC model as described in the following Microsoft documentation

The only supported method is to configure and use admin access in the container registry as described in Microsoft documentation:

Configuring Azure Container Registry
