A resource group has been created. However, we realize that the name is not the one we intended and need to rename it. Is it possible to rename without deleting and adding a new resource group with the correct name ?

    Hi,

    Unfortunately no, you cannot rename a resource group in Azure, all you can do is move an existing resource group to a new resource group.

    This is a feature that has been on the Azure uservoice for some time:

    Best regards,
    Leon

    Seems so clunky. Azure appears to be using the name as the primary key for the object rather than an independent identifier
