Accidentally deleted Owner Role of Azure Storage Account

Good day,

I seem to be having problems with my Azure account.

I am following a tutorial to learn Azure Databricks and as part of this, I created an Azure Storage Account. I went into my Storage Account inside the Dashboard and went to modify Role Assignments. I wanted to add in a Storage Blob Data Contributor role for an application that I am currently writing in Databricks. But after doing this, I went to view my access, and without realizing exactly what I was doing, I unintentionally deleted the owner profile linked to my user account. Now the storage account appears to be completely hidden. I know it's not deleted since I tried to recover my storage account, but my account was not listed as deleted.

For reference, and to show that I have also looked at other solutions, I will include this: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/63120656/accidentally-deleted-the-only-azure-subscription-owner-role

I tried reassigning the Owner role under Subscriptions, which gave me the message:
You do not have permissions to read role assignments at this scope. Check that you are assigned a role that has the Microsoft.Authorization/roleAssignments/read permission at scope /subscriptions/8462ebb0-41bf-4e4a-8a97-b5327b66f4b9 or above.

In Azure Active Directory, under Roles and Administrators, I can see that I am listed as a Global Administrator, yet I am not able to access any of the other resources that I originally created (Azure Storage account, Databricks Workspace, etc..)

Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    If you are Global Admin in an Azure tenant you can elevate yourself to manage all Subscriptions under the tenant:

    Hope this helps!
