Unable to set up service principals

Ted Ecclestone 1 Reputation point


I am working through the "Use Live Video Analytics for continuous video recording and playback to/from the cloud" Azure tutorial, but I am running into a problem when trying to set up a service principal for my Media Services account. It seems that my account doesn't have the necessary directory permission to set up service principals. Additionally, my account does not have access to my organization's Active Directory, which I think is the root cause of this issue. To obtain the necessary permissions, I understand that the organization administrator must allow all users to register applications, or assign my account a role that allows me to register an application. I am not sure who the administrator for my organization is - is it possible to determine this using the Azure Portal? Or is there another work around that I am missing?

    @Ted Ecclestone I would recommend that you look at Azure Video Analyzer(https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/products/video-analyzer/). There are a few Prerequisites roles that you will need to have, but it should not be the same as Live Video Analytics. See our getting started quick start (https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-video-analyzer/video-analyzer-docs/get-started-detect-motion-emit-events) for these requirements.
