Why I fail to create Azure Data lake with ARM template???


  • I have Azure data created in portal. I have downloaded automation scripts from portal and trying to do deployment, but I cannot create new data Lake store and analytics. I have not edited template.json file, but parameters.json is edited. What is wrong?

    az group deployment create --resource-group ARMTestRG --template-file  C:\Development\template.json  --parameters C:\Development\parameters.json

    Deployment template validation failed: 'The provided value for the template parameter 'accounts_mydata_dataLakeStore

    Accounts' at line '1' and column '312' is not valid.'.


    "$schema": "",

    "contentVersion": "",

    "parameters": {

    "accounts_mydata_defaultDataLakeStoreAccount": {

    "value": "mydata_defaultDataLakeStoreAccount_2"


    "accounts_mydata_dataLakeStoreAccounts": {

    "value": "accountsmydata2"


    "accounts_myddata_name": {

    "value": "accountsmydataname2"


    "accounts_mydata_name_1": {

    "value": "accountsmydataname12"


    "dataLakeStoreAccounts_mydata_name": {

    "value": "dataLakeStoreAccountsmydataname2"

  • Hi Kenny,

    We're looking into this. Something that may help is changing the value for accounts_mydata_dataLakeStoreAccounts to [{"name":"accountsmydata2"}].

    For now, to see what the template should look like, please use the ARM template for Data Lake Analytics account creation -- published here.

    I hope this helps!

    Best regards,


    Azure Data Lake
