Storage creation failed

In order to do the lab to use the cloud shell, it asks me to create a storage account.  But I do not have permission to create a storage account though.  

Storage creation failed

Error: 403

{"error":{"code":"AuthorizationFailed","message":"The client ‘’ with object id ‘fb6213d7-7458-4beb-988f-894aac59dc69’ does not have authorization to perform action ‘Microsoft.Resources/subscriptions/resourcegroups/read’ over scope ‘/subscriptions/0f39574d-d756-48cf-b622-0e27a6943bd2/resourcegroups/cloud-shell-storage-eastus’ or the scope is invalid. If access was recently granted, please refresh your credentials."}}

Can’t create a storage account. Please try again.

Hi Rufeng,

As answered in this thread.

1) Login to your hands-on lab

2) Take a look at Resource Groups

3) Take note of the location your Resource Group is currently in

4) Navigate to Create New Resource > Storage

5) Create a new storage account as below:

Use the location of the Resource Group you noted earlier

Ensure you use a unique Storage Account name

Leave the defaults as-is for now, and see if everything works

If you run in to any issues through this step, the deployment should fail, and you should be able to see more information about why. You can also navigate in to the Resource Group itself, choose ‘Deployments’ in the menu on the left, and see any history of failed attempts.

I hope that helps.

Guys, I ran into the same issue. Seems like the region in the create command is defaulting to my region while the resource group of the lab user is South Central US. When changing the drop down menu for region to South Central US, the thing works just fine…
