Traffic Manager Creation Failure RRS feed

  • Question

  • When trying to create a new Traffic Manager profile, it fails during the creation process:

    Error submitting the deployment request. Additional details from the underlying API that might be helpful: Deployment template validation failed: 'The value for the template parameter 'relativeName' at line '8' and column '22' is not provided.'.

    It seems like a bug in the portal given the error, but would like confirmation.

  • Hi Casper,

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention.  I can confirm this is a bug, I see the same issue.  We'll get this fixed ASAP.

    In the meantime, you can create Traffic Manager profiles via ARM PowerShell (instructions).

    Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience.
