Key Vault Key names should meet naming requirements.


When naming Azure resources, resource names must meet service requirements. The requirements for Key Vault Key names are:

  • Between 1 and 127 characters long.
  • Alphanumerics and hyphens (dash).
  • Keys must be unique within a Key Vault.


Consider using key names that meet Key Vault naming requirements. Additionally consider naming resources with a standard naming convention.


This rule does not check if Key names are unique.
