Deploying a Custome Managed Image With An ARM Template - however the linked subscription 'subscriptions' was not found. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am currently tring to deploy VM's using an ARM template and a custom VM image captured using the instruction found here. If I run the script as below it fails to deploy the VM's with the following error

    'The client has permission to perform action 'Microsoft.Resources/subscriptions/<subscriptionID>/VMImages/Microsoft.Compute/read' on scope '/subscriptions/<subscriptionID>/resourcegroups/Dev-rg/providers/Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/DEPTESTCL1', however the linked subscription 'subscriptions' was not found. "'

    If I hard code the subscription Id the deployment completes and the VM's are created. I have full permission to the Azure subscription (Owner) and there are no restrictions in place. What am I doing wrong?

    I do not want to hard code the subscription ID a this template will be stored in Github

    The issue seems to be here

    "storageProfile": {
              "osDisk": {
                "name": "[concat(variables('vmNamePrefix'), copyIndex(1), '-osdisk')]",
                "createOption": "FromImage",
                "managedDisk": {
                  "storageAccountType": "[parameters('osDiskType')]"
              "imageReference": {
                "id": "[concat('/subscriptions/', variables('subscriptionId'), '/resourceGroups/VMImages/providers/Microsoft.Compute/images', variables('operatingSystemValues')[parameters('operatingSystem')].imageValue)]"

  • HI SuperCoach91,

    Since it works well when you hardcode the subscription id, Can you check if the variable "subscriptionId" is computed for proper value(subscription id) from the inputs provided by the user.

    I think the variable "subscriptionId" has the vaule "subscriptions" instead of the actual subscription id

    Try this out and let me know
