The Subscription is not allowed to create or update the serverfarm

JustinRodriguez 0 Reputation points

Hello Everyone,  I have been using Azure for a while, but just started trying to build some Function Apps. I want a function app to launch some python code. When I try to build the app, I get an error stating that my subscription isn't allowed to create or update the serverfarm. I don't know why that is.  It is a new organization It is a new Subscription I believe I have all of the owner ship and permissions I need to implement this. I am the only admin on the site at the moment.  I wanted to simply use a consumption license.  Any advice as to what could be causing the issue? It fails on deployment, and when I go to operations details, that is what it says, that I can't create the server farm. Thanks for the help!

    Hi @JustinRodriguez ,

    there was an issue a few month before. Maybe the older threads are helpful:

    If not, maybe the best option might be to open a support case with Microsoft Azure support for clarification.

    Azure Billing and Subscription support is offered by Microsoft by no cost and it's for free.

    Wondering if you have the correct Resource Providers enabled on your Subscription for it to be able to create them. This would have to be explicitly done.

    Thank you to everyone who replied!!
    I think I found the answer:
    I was still on the 'Free Subscription'. I had increased to the 'Pay as You Go' subscription, but I think there is a lag.

    I am able to create the Azure Function Apps now, and my guess is that you can't as a 'Free Subscription'. Furthermore, there might have been a cookie or something that didn't recognize that I had switched or something.

    If you just switched, try giving it a day.

    Have a great day everyone -
