Possible bug in portal azure sql database deplyment cancelation

Dawid Zyrek 26 Reputation points

On portal.azure.com, when creating a copy of existing sql database (same subscription, same server), you have an option to cancel it's deployment. However after pressing 'Cancel deployment' button and getting a notification with confirmation that deployment was successfully canceled - the copy of database will still be created. That has led to some unexpected costs as copies of P1 databases were created and just sat on my subscribtion for few days until I noticed.

Is that a desired behaviour/technical limitation or is it simply a bug? If it's a bug, is it platform wide or account specific?

Steps to reproduce :

  1. Have an sql database.
  2. Go to the database overwiev, press 'Create copy', go through the wizard.
  3. During copy deployment press 'Cancel deplyment'. Wait for notification with confirmation that it was successfully canceled.
  4. In some time (depending on size of source database - mine took around an hour) canceled copy will still be created.
