What are the restrictions for resources with the same name? AZ-900 Help

Cate Allen 0 Reputation points

I can't find any documentation on this question so I was hoping someone would be able to help me with this one:

  • Can you have the same name for a resource within the same Region?
  • Can you have the same name for a resource within two different Regions?
  • Can you have the same name for a resource in different subscriptions?

Basically, what are the naming restrictions for resources, in terms at what level do they need to be unique or at all?

    Hi @Cate Allen ,

    I would say: It depends on the scope of the Azure resource/object: Naming considerations - Scope

    A list of Azure resources and their scope you can find here: Naming rules and restrictions for Azure resources
