#Azure – Easy fix to subscription is not registered to use microsoft.insights

Buy Me A Coffee


Azure days for me and weird behavior when I was trying to enable some monitoring resources in an IoT Hub resource. In random times, I get an error similar to this one

The subscription ‘[subscription id]’ is not registered to use microsoft.insights.

And, it was weird because when I check the Resources providers available and registered for my subscription, the [microsoft.insights] appeared as [registered].

So, I tested a couple of reset scenarios, some other PowerShell scripts, and at the end the solution was the easiest one:

Unregister and Register again the provider.

5 minutes later, my monitoring capabilities were back available for me.

Again, it happened at random times, so there maybe an external factor also in this scenario.

Happy coding!
