Microsoft Entra Permissions Management is a cloud infrastructure entitlement management (CIEM) product that provides comprehensive visibility and control over permissions for any identity and any resource in Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

About the challenge

Come together virtually in an intense, fun-filled, month-long hackathon to develop and build solutions that make Entra Permissions Management easy to deploy and onboard. Your solution should bring extra visibility to the product and empower customer scenarios involving multicloud deployments.

Don’t have any experience with Entra Permissions Management and Azure Active Directory? Not a problem; our engineering team is available on Discord to support you along the way!

Get started

Please check out the resources tab for links to documentation, how-to's, and free trials.


Note, these are some ideas that would work for a submission, but do not think of this list as an complete list. If you think of something else that would benefit usage, deployment, and onboarding of the solution into an environment, please feel free to submit that at the end of the hackathon!

1. Create a product guide or tool tip for the Entra Permissions Management portal (e.g. a browser extension).
2. Export data from Entra Permissions Management and build a custom workflow using a tool like Power Platform.
3. Export data from Entra Permissions Management and build a custom PowerBI dashboard.  

1. Final presentations due as a 2-3 minute YouTube video and/or narrated PowerPoint
We recommend:

  • ~1 min: background and presentation of unmet need
  • ~1 min: description of proposed solution
  • ~1 min: team member backgrounds (optional)

2. Link to a public GitHub repo or working solution

3. Complete submission form
Include all of the required fields on your Devpost submission form BEFORE the final deadline on January 31, 2023 at 5pm PST.
