You use Azure Security Center for the centralized policy management of three Azure subscriptions.
You use several policy definitions to manage the security of the subscriptions.
You need to deploy the policy definitions as a group to all three subscriptions.
Solution: You create a resource graph and an assignment that is scoped to a management group.
Does this meet the goal?

A. Yes
B. No


B. No


Creating a resource graph and an assignment that is scoped to a management group does not meet the goal of deploying the policy definitions as a group to all three subscriptions. A resource graph is a service that allows you to query information about your Azure resources using the Azure Resource Graph Explorer or the Azure Resource Graph API. A resource graph can help you explore, analyze, and monitor your resources, but it does not allow you to create or assign policy definitions.

A management group is a container that helps you organize your subscriptions and apply governance controls, such as policies, at a large scale. However, creating an assignment that is scoped to a management group does not automatically deploy the policy definitions as a group to the subscriptions within the management group. An assignment is the application of a policy definition or an initiative to a scope, such as a management group, subscription, resource group, or resource. An initiative is a collection of policy definitions that are grouped together towards a specific goal or purpose.

To deploy the policy definitions as a group to all three subscriptions, you need to create an initiative that contains the policy definitions that you want to apply, and then assign the initiative to a management group that contains all three subscriptions. This way, you can deploy the policy definitions as a group to all three subscriptions in one step, and ensure that they are enforced consistently across your resources.
