I am trying to create the secret in the key vault from C sharp console application. But I am getting the below error in the code.

KeyVaultErrorException: Operation returned an invalid status code 'NotFound'.

If I try to create in Azure I am getting an error as in the attachment.

Please help me to resolve this issue and create and update the secret in key vault from Console application.

    Thank you for your post!

    Error Message:

    The operation is not allowed by RBAC. If role assignments were recently changed, please wait several minutes for role assignments to become effective.

    I understand that you're trying to create a Key Vault Secret from your C# console app, and when trying to create the Secret within the Portal you're running into the error above. In order to resolve your issue from the Portal, you'll have to ensure that your user has the correct Key Vault RBAC permissions to create the Key Vault Secret.

    Key Vault RBAC Permissions:

    1. Go to your Key Vault or the Resource Group that contains your vault.
    2. Select Access control (IAM).
    3. Select View my access. You can also select the Role assignments tab to find your user's KV permissions.
    4. Ensure you have the Key Vault Secrets Officer or Key Vault Administrator role assigned to your user.

    Please note that it will take up to 10 minutes (600 seconds) after role assignments is changed for role to be applied. For more info.

    To hopefully help troubleshoot your C# Console app error, it looks like your error message is referring to the specified resource not being found.
