Add User as Admin for Windows Azure Pack Portal

less than 1 minute read

Have you setup Windows Azure Pack to use SMA and are stuck trying to figure out how to grant other team members Admin access to the portal? Though unintuitive, it is actually quite simple with some quick PowerShell:

Add-MgmtSvcAdminUser -ConnectionString 'Server=YourSQLServer;Initial Catalog=Microsoft.MgmtSvc.Store;Trusted_Connection=True;' -Principal 'YourDomain\UserOrGroup'

You will want to run this with an account that has SQL modify rights. Replace the Server name above with the name of your SQL server as well as the domain and user or group as appropriate for your environment.
