To interact with Azure resources, we need to create a service connection from Azure devops. But while creating service connection it fails with the policy issue. It throws the error : "Failed to create app in active directory" – insufficient previleges.
Thanks for posting and sorry you’re having a bit of trouble there! It would help greatly if you could provide specifics of your problem – for instance, is this a specific hands-on lab you’re struggling with? Or are you trying to follow along with a demo which might not be compatible with our Cloud Playground? A link is useful, as well as the steps you’re taking.
We are able to provide service principles for Azure within hands-on labs which you can add as a manual service connection in DevOps, but the automatic option will not work.
If you can share some specifics we’ll take a look! Thanks 🙂
