Azure Purview Account Name

Brass Contributor


Just wondering when provisioning Purview and creating the Purview account. Is the name unique to a tenant? Or is it larger and needs to be unique within the Azure Purview service?


Running into an issue at the moment where it's stating the name is already in use. I.e. same name different tenants.

@ShaneOss Azure Purview accounts must be unique globally across Azure (including different tenants and regions). If you already have a Purview Account with a name, no other user (including yourself) can create a Purview Account with that name.
