MC218295, Plan For Change, Published date: Jul 11, 2020
Action required by Aug 14, 2020
Some Azure Active Directory (AD) built-in roles have names that differ from those that appear in Microsoft 365 admin center, the Azure AD portal, and Microsoft Graph. This inconsistency can cause problems in automated processes. With this update, we are renaming 10 role names to make them consistent.
- Timing: mid-August rollout; complete in early September 2020
- Roll-out: tenant level
- Control type: admin UI
- Action: Review and assess by August 14, 2020
How this will affect your organization
After the rollout, you will see these 10 updated Azure AD names in the Microsoft 365 admin center, Azure AD portal, and Microsoft Graph API.

What you need to do to prepare
If you have PowerShell script or application that leverages these roles by display name, please update it by August 14, 2020.
We strongly discourage the use of display names in your script or code. Instead, you should reference the role template ID. See this list of template IDs for Azure AD built-in roles.
