Azure Databricks Premium Deployment Fails - 403 User Not Authorised

Ramesh 20 Reputation points

Hi Team,

Creating Azure Databricks workspace fails during deployment. This only happens for pricing tier - premium. I have been able to create workspaces previously. This is on my pay-as-you-go subscription and I am the service administrator with full permissions on the subscription.

I teach Azure Databricks and lot of my students are also having the same issue. Also, I have created many workspaces until yesterday in this subscription without any issues. So, there seemed to be something that's changed at the product. Please let us know how to proceed.

Note - Creating workspaces with pricing tier standard works without any issues. The problem is only with premium workspaces.

Error message is as below. Please let me know if you need any further information.
