Hello All. I have created an azure account with a pay as you go subscription. I am using mainly this account for Azure machine learning. When I try to increase the quotas for certain vCPUs clusters, I have this message saying I do not have the authorization to change the quotas and that I have to contact the account administrator. I am confused since I am the one who created the account and the subscription. Am I not supposed to be the administrator then ?

    Hey Christian Yembe

    I guess the permissions issue in Azure. even though you created the account and subscription. To resolve this, you can grant yourself the necessary permissions, such as the Contributor role. lemme help you how

    Go to Azure Portal and sign in with the account you used to create the subscription.

    In the left-hand navigation pane, select the specific subscription you're working with.

    Scroll down and find the "Access control (IAM)" section.

    Click on "Add a role assignment" or "Add" and then "Add role assignment."

    In the "Role" dropdown, select "Contributor."

    Now Select the User, In the "Assign access to" field, choose your account by either searching for your name or entering your email address. Finally save it and its done.

    For more info refer the below doc.
