    Hello Sidney Bastos,

    Thank you for posting your query here!

    I understand that you're trying to add a virtual network (VNet) from one subscription to a storage account in another subscription. While doing this, you're getting an error that says you don't have the necessary permission to complete the action.

    Please ensure that the service principal or user has the necessary permissions on the virtual network in the other subscription. Specifically, they need the ‘Microsoft.Network/virtualNetworks/subnets/join/action permission’. This is typically included in the Network Contributor role.

    Since you mentioned you are the Owner of the subscription, necessary permissions to configure networking settings on the storage account should already be covered.

    If you’ve recently granted permissions or made changes, try refreshing your credentials by signing out and signing back in to the Azure portal. Sometimes, cached credentials can cause issues.

    Also, a similar issue is discussed in the Answer section of the following SO thread:
