Resource Group names should meet naming requirements.


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

  • Between 1 and 90 characters long.
  • Alphanumerics, underscores, parentheses, hyphens, periods.
  • Can't end with period.
  • Resource Group names must be unique within a subscription.


Consider using names that meet Resource Group naming requirements. Additionally consider naming resources with a standard naming convention.


This rule does not check if Resource Group names are unique.
