Welcome to Azure - Log analytics workspace

jpcapone 1,376 Reputation points

When I attempt to create a log analytics workspace I am presented with Welcome to Azure Don't have a subscription window. I am assuming this is happening because the GA account I am using does not have permissions at the subscription level. I am working as a consultant for a client that is not associated with my MPN site. So how are we supposed to assist clients in situations such as these?

    @jpcapone Permission to data in a Log Analytics workspace is defined by the access control mode, which is a setting on each workspace. Users can either be given explicit access to the workspace using a built-in or custom role, or you can allow access to data collected for Azure resources to users with access to those resources.

    See Manage access to log data and workspaces in Azure Monitor for details on the different permission options and on configuring permissions.

    Below are the minimum permissions you would require to create log analytics workspace.

    • Microsoft.Resources/subscriptions/resourceGroups/deployments/* - Create and manage resource group deployments
    • Microsoft.OperationalInsights/workspaces/* - To read and write log analyticsworkspaces
    • Microsoft.Resources/subscriptions/resourceGroups/* - To read and write resource groups

    You need an account within the tenant and this account need the appropriate subscription permissions.

    Alternatively if you are working in specific resource groups you could have permission only to those.
