  1. I have enabled the network watcher using the below command

az network watcher configure \
--resource-group $RG \
--location westeurope \
--enabled true

but when I check under Network topology, I get the below error even though the location (westeurope) is enabled

Network Topology Unable to get topology for resource group: RG1

  1. By mistake I disable the auto network watcher using the powershell command.

Register-AzProviderFeature -FeatureName DisableNetworkWatcherAutocreation -ProviderNamespace Microsoft.Network
Register-AzResourceProvider -ProviderNamespace Microsoft.Network

  1. Not able to contact MS support to enable the Network watcher with my subscription.

Could you please guide me what is the issue with Network watcher and how to opt in auto enable

    Hello @Muddu Venkata Narasimha Murthy ,

    If you have enabled Network Watcher for a region, you should be able to see topology for the resource group deployed in that region. I checked in my lab and I am able to view topology for all the enabled region RGs without any issues. So, your case needs further investigation.

    Also, Opting-out of Network Watcher automatic enablement is a permanent change. Once you opt-out you cannot opt-in without contacting support.
    Please refer :

    Hence, if you have a support plan, I request you to file a support ticket, else please do let us know, we will try and help you get a one-time free technical support.
