Hi,
I'm getting an timeout when I want to create a storage account. This does not happen with the same browser in another tenant.
Logging out and back on to portal, or using a different browser, does not solve the issue.

    @Rini Braat ,
    using a different browser, might not solve the issue. Did you try to create a storage account in a different region? (I checked Azure status, I don't see any storage service downtime across regions - https://status.azure.com/en-us/status/history/).

    The other option might be that you may not have the necessary permissions on your subscription to create a storage account. In order to be able to create a storage account, you will need at least Storage Account Contributor RBAC permissions at the subscription level.

    After writing my question above, I was hospilallized unexpectedly, so I was not able to answer.
    I'm just discharged now and I looked at the issue again. The problem does not exist anymore ... ?

    Without changing anything, now, after a week, the issue seems disappeared, I have no problem creating a new storage account whatsoever.
    So thank you for helping in any case!

    I am very curious why it was an issue last week, and not any more now. What has changed (by itself)?
