What you need to do to prepare

If you have PowerShell script or application that leverages these roles by display name, please double-check that you have made any necessary adjustments.

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 and List unifiedRole definitions
