  • Hi, 

    It cannot contain special characters and -. 

    So only letters and numbers are part of the region name you can choose. The regex patterns is as follow:

    [ValidatePattern("^[0-9a-zA-Z]+$")]

  • I was asked to update the docs for this yesterday, and now the change is live at: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-stack/azure-stack-datacenter-integration#identity-considerations

    The doc now also states: "The region name must consist of only letters and numbers between 0-9. No special characters like “-“ or “#”, etc. are allowed."

  • Hi Mark,

    Thank you for your answer.

    Is there any Microsoft documentation where this requirement is said? Our problem is that our customer filled the CDW Excel for the 1805 verson, and we weren't awered of this requirement and the customer generated the certificate using this region name "pv-es", so now he has to regenerate the certificate and I would like to have a document (site) which support is requirement.

    Again, thank you very much.

    Regards

  • I do not believe that this is documented, but I will check. If not, I will follow up and make sure that this gets documented in the future.
