Unable to create Azure Purview Account – Resource provider Microsoft.Purview is not registered

In my last Azure Purview Quickstart video (#3 – Create an Azure Purview Account – link), I’ve shown you how to create a new Azure Purview account.

And what pre-prepared demos have in common, well – it “just” works there 😉
BUT: there are some requirements that need to be configured beforehand, in order to create an Azure Purview Account.

Basically, problems during the creation process can be listed to:

  • Security / permissions
  • Missing Resource providers

Permissions required to create an Azure Purview Account

You need Azure Contributor or Owner role (or be an Administrator of the Azure subscription)

Missing Resource providers

Azure Purview requires the following resource providers to be registered in your Azure subscription. If you have not heard of Azure resource providers before, please have a look at the docs page.

Azure Purview requires the resources providers for

  • Microsoft.Purview
  • Microsoft.Storage
  • Microsoft.EventHub

to be activated in your subscription…

The validation error message looks similar to this one:

Validation failed with error: The template deployment ‘Microsoft.AzurePurviewGalleryPackage-datagov01’ is not valid according to the validation procedure. The tracking id is ‘xxxxxxxx’. See inner errors for details.
Detailed error(s):
21005 – The resource providers Microsoft.Storage and Microsoft.EventHub and Microsoft.Purview are not registered for subscription xxxxxx. For improved Azure Policy validation on managed resources, we recommend to register Microsoft.PolicyInsights resource provider on your subscription.

The resource providers Microsoft.Storage and Microsoft.EventHub and Microsoft.Purview are not registered for subscription xxxx

Missing resource providers (Microsoft.Purview) for Purview Account

How to register missing resource providers?

  • First of all – you need administrative access to your Azure subscription to enable resource providers.
  • Open the Azure portal and head over to Subscriptions
Azure subscription list

Select the Resource providers menu entry and search for the three required ones (Microsoft.Purview, Microsoft.Storage, Microsoft.EventHub)

Resource provider menu in the subscription section

(1) Search for the resource provider name, select (2) the entry and (3) register / re-register it in your subscription.

Resource provider details page

Reminder: check for all three resource providers to be registered! 😉

With these configuration steps, you now should be able to create your Azure Purview account!

Happy data cataloguing,

Wolfgang
