Use valid PPG names#

Proximity Placement Group (PPG) names should meet naming requirements.


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

  • Between 1 and 80 characters long.
  • Alphanumerics, underscores, periods, and hyphens.
  • Start and end with alphanumeric.
  • PPG names must be unique within a resource group.


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


This rule does not check if Proximity Placement Group names are unique.
