    Hi @PS,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A platform , to clarify the requirement , you need from inside shell of running container to get the subscription/rg?

    if that is the case , can you pass subscription/rg as environment variable inside the ACI container ,

    and then you can consume it inside ACI

    because inside the shell of running container it will not be aware of the context as subscription or resource group .
