I'd like to know which is the minimum permission inside Azure in order to create a Synapse Analytics workspace.

Is contributor enough to accomplish a such task?

    Hi @pmscorca ,

    Thanks for the question and using MS Q&A platform.

    Yes, you are correct! The minimum permission required to create a Synapse Analytics workspace in Azure is "Contributor" access to the resource group where the workspace will be created. This permission allows the user to create, read, update, and delete resources in the resource group.

    For more details, refer to Understand the roles required to perform common tasks in Azure Synapse
