what would be the reason where credential creation for linked service in ADF is taking time forever?

Hello There,

I have an issue creating 'credential' in linked-service for 'azure blob storage' where after giving all the information including resource-group, resource-type, 'user-assigned-managed-identity', and hit the 'create' button, the creation process never coming to end; it can be understood from the screenshot attached to this post.

Same is the problem when tried to first create credential from the 'manage' tab (in ADF github mode).

Would you anyone help me understand and isolate the problem.

Thank you for your time and efforts.

    Please, check in Azure Portal. Go to your Data Factory -> Settings -> Managed Identities -> User assigned Tab. Your managed identity should be indicated there.
