Storage Account names should meet naming requirements.


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

  • Between 3 and 24 characters long.
  • Lowercase letters or numbers.
  • Storage Account names must be globally unique.


Consider using names that meet Storage Account naming requirements. Additionally consider naming resources with a standard naming convention.


This rule does not check if Storage Account names are unique.
