Vijayakumar, Vishal Vijay 0 Reputation points

While adding the data source under import data section, there is this error which tells "Cannot retrieve connection string because the data source is not found within the subscription".
How can I connect to this data source of different subscription from Az cognitive search using user managed identity.

    Thanks for reaching here!

    As mentioned in this document that Managed identity is only supported within the same subscription and tenant.

    For other business needs, the suggestion option is using storage connection string or copy the data to a storage account within the same subscription.
