InvalidTemplateDeployment in Azure RM

Using scripting when deploying Logic Apps, and the surrounding bits is very useful. If you have set something up it is very easy to just script it and save it locally or under your templates.

I stored mine locally and got the error above when deploying. My thoughts where “An error in the template? The template that was generated for me? This is not good”.

I tried opening the template file and found some minor upper and lower case errors but that did not do it.

The solution was to get more information! You need to access your subscription’s activity logs. You can find it in the left side menu or by searching for “Activity Log” in the expanded menu.

The starting query should return your failed validation of the template.

Click on the row of the failed validation (it is not a link strangely) and choose to show the info as JSON.

Scroll down to the end of the message. Under the tag “properties/statusMessage” you will find the full story. In my case (I am ashamed to say) the name of the storageaccount was invalid.
