  • There is a resource provider for every functionality in Azure. Azure Subscription is not registered with all resource providers. In your case, your subscription is not registered with Microsoft.DataFactory resource provider, this is the reason for the occurrence of this error.

  • You need to register your subscription manually with a resource provider. If you are Azure PowerShell user, you can make use of Register-AzureRmResourceProvider Cmdlet.

  • Syntax: Register-AzureRmResourceProvider -ProviderNamespace Microsoft.DataFactory
