I am trying to find Azure Overprovisioned databases as mentioned in this url:
It seems Azure Advisor will generate recommendations for "MariaDB, MySQL, and PostgreSQL servers by right-sizing".

So I am looking for a sample response from Azure Advisor Resource Graph API for this, as in my current infrastructure I am not able to find any underutilized Databases for right-sizing.

    @Vikas Neekhra Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forums.

    You may not have any databases that are underutilized at this time.
