    Hi @Al-Maamoory, Samir ,

    what happens if you try to delete the single resources mentioned in the error messages?
    For me it looks like a timeout issue.
    I noticed this kind of error sometimes if a lot of resources with relationships are in the same resource group. If I deleted the single resources instead of the resource group it worked for me.

    Hi @Al-Maamoory, Samir ,

    if the resource group is empty you can try this:

    1. Go to https://resources.azure.com
    2. Login and select the subscription containing the resource group
    3. Expand the resource group section and select the resource group you want to delete
    4. Click on Action (POST, DELETE)
    5. Click Delete and confirm

    Hi @Al-Maamoory, Samir ,

    if the issue still exists than it might be the best option to contact Azure support.

    Hello @Al-Maamoory, Samir - Thanks for raising the support ticket and glad that the issue is resolved for you as you worked with MS support.

    The resolution was that it appeared like the resource was never created on the server side, but it exists in the ARM cache. After deleting the process again and submitting correlation ID for this new attempt and also attempting to recreate the resource group and deleting it without any issues.

    Hope that resolved the issue.
