Resource providers for Azure services

This article shows how resource provider namespaces map to Azure services. If you don't know the resource provider, see Find resource provider.

Match resource provider to service

The resources providers that are marked with - registered are registered by default for your subscription. For more information, see Registration.

Resource providers marked with - registered in the previous section are automatically registered for your subscription. For other resource providers, you need to register them. However, many resource providers are registered automatically when you perform specific actions. For example, when you create resources through the portal or by deploying an Azure Resource Manager template, Azure Resource Manager automatically registers any required unregistered resource providers.


Register a resource provider only when you're ready to use it. This registration step helps maintain least privileges within your subscription. A malicious user can't use unregistered resource providers.

Registering unnecessary resource providers may result in unrecognized apps appearing in your Azure Active Directory tenant. Microsoft adds the app for a resource provider when you register it. These apps are typically added by the Windows Azure Service Management API. To prevent unnecessary apps in your tenant, only register needed resource providers.

Find resource provider

To identify resource providers used for your existing Azure infrastructure, list the deployed resources. Specify the resource group containing the resources.

The following example uses Azure CLI:

az resource list --resource-group examplegroup

The results include the resource type. The resource provider namespace is the first part of the resource type. The following example shows the Microsoft.KeyVault resource provider.

    "type": "Microsoft.KeyVault/vaults"

The following example uses PowerShell:

Get-AzResource -ResourceGroupName examplegroup

The results include the resource type. The resource provider namespace is the first part of the resource type. The following example shows the Microsoft.KeyVault resource provider.

Name              : examplekey
ResourceGroupName : examplegroup
ResourceType      : Microsoft.KeyVault/vaults

The following example uses Python:

import os
from azure.identity import DefaultAzureCredential
from azure.mgmt.resource import ResourceManagementClient

subscription_id = os.environ["AZURE_SUBSCRIPTION_ID"]
credential = DefaultAzureCredential()
resource_client = ResourceManagementClient(credential, subscription_id)

resource_group_name = "examplegroup"
resources = resource_client.resources.list_by_resource_group(resource_group_name)

for resource in resources:

The results list the resource type. The resource provider namespace is the first part of the resource type. The following example shows the Microsoft.KeyVault resource provider.
