To mitigate the impact of credential exposure or compromise, role assignments should be scoped down to the least level of privilege needed to perform their responsibilities. This rule identifies when a user is assigned a role that has permissions that are more broad than what is regularly used. Datadog considers a permissions gap to be large when the number of unused permissions is greater than 40% of the total permissions count.


By comparing what actions a user has performed in the last 15 days with what their roles permit, we can identify a permissions gap. This gap should be removed to mitigate the impact of a potential compromise.


Datadog recommends reducing the permissions assigned to user to the minimum necessary for them to fulfill their duties. Azure activity logs provide a comprehensive view of user actions.
