Fail to create azure synapse link for dataverse in Power Apps

Toms Ng 25 Reputation points

Hi Experts,

This is Toms.

I tried a few of times but I still failed to create azure synapse link for dataverse through Power Apps. The error message is
{"code":"AuthorizationFailed","message":"The client 'XXX' has an authorization with ABAC condition that is not fulfilled to perform action 'Microsoft.Authorization/roleAssignments/write' over scope '/subscriptions/xxx-xxx-xxx/resourceGroups/xxxxx/providers/Microsoft.Storage/storageAccounts/esdeventcapture/providers/Microsoft.Authorization/roleAssignments/or scope is invalid. If access was recently granted, please refresh your credentials."}

I got 'Contributor' role in resource group

I got 'Contributor', 'Owner' & 'Storage Blob Data Contributor' in storage account

Please help

Many thanks

    @Toms Ng - Thanks for the question and using MS Q&A platform.

    It seems like you are facing an authorization issue while creating an Azure Synapse link for Dataverse through Power Apps. The error message indicates that the client 'XXX' does not have the required authorization to perform the action Microsoft.Authorization/roleAssignments/write over the specified scope.

    To resolve this issue, you can try the following steps:

    • Make sure that you have the required permissions to create a role assignment. As you mentioned, you have Contributor role in the resource group and Contributor, Owner & Storage Blob Data Contributor in the storage account. These roles should be sufficient to create a role assignment.
    • Check if you have any Azure AD role assignments that are blocking the creation of the role assignment. You can use the Azure portal to view the role assignments for the client 'XXX'.
    • Try refreshing your credentials if you recently granted access.
    • If the issue persists, you can try creating the role assignment using Azure PowerShell or Azure CLI. Here is an example PowerShell command to create a role assignment:
    New-AzRoleAssignment -SignInName <emailOrUserprincipalname> `
    -RoleDefinitionName <roleName> `
    -Scope /subscriptions/xxx-xxx-xxx/resourceGroups/xxxxx/providers/Microsoft.Storage/storageAccounts/esdeventcapture

    Replace emailOrUserprincipalname with the email or user principal name of the user or service principal that needs access, roleName with the name of the role you want to assign, and /subscriptions/xxx-xxx-xxx/resourceGroups/xxxxx/providers/Microsoft.Storage/storageAccounts/esdeventcapture with the scope of the role assignment.

    For more details, refer to prerequisites metioned in the official documentation: Create an Azure Synapse Link for Dataverse with your Azure Synapse Workspace and Authorization failed when when writing a roleAssignment MS Q&A thread addressing similar issue.
