Unable to create ADLS Gen2 in Free Tier Subscription

2023-08-01T05:29:55.6+00:00

I am trying to do a PoC by writing some data from Databricks to ADLS Gen2 Account. But when I try to create one using my free subscription it does not show an option to create a new ADLS gen2 storage. The portal just has the Gen 1 and it would not allow me to choose any location. Could any one please help me create ADLS Gen2 account?
