Azure MySQL DB server names should meet naming requirements.


When naming Azure resources, resource names must meet service requirements. The requirements for MySQL DB server names are:

  • Between 3 and 63 characters long.
  • Lowercase letters, numbers, and hyphens.
  • Can't start or end with a hyphen.
  • MySQL DB server names must be globally unique.


Consider using names that meet Azure MySQL DB server naming requirements. Additionally consider naming resources with a standard naming convention.


This rule does not check if Azure MySQL DB server names are unique.
