Can't Create New Cloud Shell in Azure Portal

Richard Linderman 0 Reputation points

I'm currently trying to create a new Cloud Shell in the Azure portal, but it keeps telling me that I either don't have authorisation to do so or the scope is invalid. Would you be able to help me out?

    @Richard Linderman Thanks for reaching out to Microsoft Q&A, apologize for any inconvenience caused on this.

    Based on the error message it more looks like to be a permission issue Could you please try checking by following the suggested steps and let us if you are facing the issue.

    • Check that you have the necessary permissions to create a new Cloud Shell instance. You can do this by going to the "Access control (IAM)" tab in the left-hand menu of the Azure portal and checking that you have the "Contributor" role assigned to your account.
    • If you are still having issues, try logging out of the Azure portal and logging back in again. Sometimes this can help to refresh your session and resolve any issues.
