Azure shared dashboard not found, February 2024

Today, February 19, 2024, at 07:30 CET, I discovered that my shared dashboards are no longer working on the Microsoft Azure Portal. This issue was observed across multiple tenants and subscriptions. I do not yet know the root cause, but I suspect that it is an incident on Azure’s side.

Dashboard not found

Dashboard ” no longer exists. It was previously published to resource group ‘dashboards’ in subscription ‘00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000’.*** (2024-02-19 11:00 CET)

Azure CLI, api-version is invalid

I supported with an issue involving the Azure CLI being called in an Azure DevOps Pipeline.

- task: AzureCLI@2
  displayName: Create Deployment Slot
    azureSubscription: "${{ variables.Azure_Subscription }}"
    scriptType: "bash"
    scriptLocation: "inlineScript"
    inlineScript: |
      az webapp deployment slot create 
        --name "${{ variables.Azure_WebAppName }}" 
        --resource-group "${{ variables.Azure_ResourceGroup }}" 
        --slot "${{ variables.Azure_DeploymentSlotName }}" 
        --configuration-source "${{ variables.Azure_WebAppName }}" 

It’s returning the error “InvalidApiVersionParameter” along with “The api-version ‘2023-01-01’ is invalid.”

Azure Incident on January 21, 2024

Azure was reporting an issue on their status page. I have found it to be impacting services.

The case was resolved. In 14 days (February 5th, 2024), we can expect a final report. The final report was posted.


App Service: Unable to contact IP driver

I had to debug an Azure App Service and was running a ping command on the Kudu PowerShell Console. When running a ping command, it returns ‘Unable to contact IP driver. General failure.’, which could lead you to believe there is a problem in the app service networking in general. However, this is not the case.

Kudu Remote Execution Console
Type 'exit' then hit 'enter' to get a new powershell process.
Type 'cls' to clear the console

PS C:\home> ping
Unable to contact IP driver. General failure. 

ICMP ping is simply not supported, and TCP should be used instead.

I encountered the following issue with a recently deployed Azure AKS Cluster connected to a Log Analytics Workspace in Azure.

Azure West Europe Dsv5 Availability

I experienced issues today (2023-12-12) while deploying Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) to Azure West Europe. It appears that the CPU type availability is exhausted in West Europe, which is a significant concern if your Azure Governance and related policies dictate that deployment must occur in this region.

Issues with AzureRmWebAppDeploment v230

We deploy from Azure DevOps YAML pipelines to Azure App Services. We use msdeploy packages for this. In calendar week 45 of 2023, we discovered issues in our deployment pipeline. The pipeline started failing unexpectedly in various places.

The error message “ERROR_USER_NOT_AUTHORIZED_FOR_DEPLOYMENTPROVIDER” and details “Could not complete an operation with the specified provider (dbDacFx) when connecting using the Web Management Service.” were not very comprehensive for me, especially because it stopped working suddenly from one day to the next. Additionally, most of the linked help articles mainly relate to IIS.

This is the error we found in our pipelines in full.

More Information: Could not complete an operation with the specified provider ("dbDacFx") when connecting using the Web 
Management Service. This can occur if the server administrator has not authorized the user for this operation. dbDacFx  Learn more at:
