Hi, after using the Azure Free trial to get up to speed with Azure and prepare for Azure Fundamentals and admin exam I have deleted everything after switching to pay as you go. I am unable to delete the last remaining resource which is a firewall policy which does not have anything configured and the the firewall has been deleted. The firewall policy is the only thing listed under all resources but I cannot delete it either from the portal or via PowerShell. I get the same error.

Firewall Policy 'fw-pol' cannot be deleted since there are Azure Firewalls using this policy

There are no firewalls in existance.

Any ideas how I can delete it.

    Boom ...fixed it. JSON view of firewall policy referanced a non existing firewall. Re-created firewall with the same name, and ran set-azfirewallpolicy with same parameters which updated firewall policy and provisioning state now says succeeded. Now to re-delete firewall and piolicy
