Azure Portal Access
Secure remote access to the Microsoft Azure Portal
You can enable secure remote access to Azure Portal on the dynamic secret that generates ephemeral credentials for Azure AD. Users can then access the Azure Portal from the Secure Remote Access Portal.
To enable secure remote access to the Azure Portal, you need:
A dynamic secret that specifies the Azure AD details, with Portal Access selected.
In addition, for users to access the Azure Portal in Isolated mode, you need:
The Web Access Bastion.
The Azure Portal site URL is specified as part of the
policiessection in the values.yaml file on the Web Access Bastion.
