AAD Security Reader Role in Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps – Alignment with Microsoft 365 Defender

Currently the AAD “Security Reader” role can manage Microsoft Defender for Cloud Apps alerts, however, it can only view alerts from all other security workloads. The AAD “Security Reader” role update will now be aligned with AAD role definition to provide clarity and prevent confusion of the same role use.

When this will happen:
