    To create a resource group in Azure, you need to have the correct permissions assigned to your account. These permissions are typically granted by the Azure subscription owner or someone with the User Access Administrator role.

    Here are the steps they would need to follow to assign you the necessary permissions:

    Sign in to the Azure portal: The person with the necessary permissions needs to sign in to the Azure portal.

    Navigate to Subscriptions: From the left-hand menu, they should select "Subscriptions".

    Select the Subscription: They should select the subscription where they want to grant you permissions.

    Access control (IAM): In the left-hand menu of the subscription, they should select "Access control (IAM)".

    Add Role Assignment: They should click on "+ Add" and then "Add role assignment".

    Configure Role Assignment: In the "Add role assignment" pane, they should select the "Contributor" role, select "User, group, or service principal" for the "Assign access to" option, and then enter your account in the "Select" field.

    Save: They should click on "Save" to apply the changes.

    Once these steps are completed, you should have the necessary permissions to create a resource group in the selected subscription. Further for Azure Machine Learning access, there are specific roles like AzureML Contributor or AzureML Workspace Owner that can be assigned to give you the necessary permissions within the workspace.

    @VIKAS GAUTAM Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Forum, Thank you for posting your query here!

    Firstly, in order to create the Machine learning resource within a resource group, you need to have the below RBAC permissions:

    User's image

    More info here.


    I understand that you don't have enough permissions to create resource at the moment.


    In Azure, to assign RBAC roles (permissions), you must have Microsoft.Authorization/roleAssignments/write permissions. This permission is typically held by the Owner (of the subscription) or the person who has User Access Administrator RBAC permission on the subscription.


    So, you can contact the person in your organization who holds one of these roles. They should be able to assign you the necessary roles or permissions. If you’re unsure who that is, it’s likely to be the subscription admin or owner, as they typically have these permissions.


    Remember, the scope of the role assignment can be set at different levels: management group, subscription, resource group, and resource. So, that person assigning the role will need to consider adding a minimum of contributor RBAC permissions for you on that resource group. As shown below:

    User's image

    After selecting your user account and then Click on Review + Assign.

    Post that you should be able to create resource within that subscription.

    Hope this helps. If you have any follow-up questions, please let me know. I would be happy to help.
