Error when Creating a Provider

Updated by Ben Swoboda on Feb 20, 2017


You need to be a CenturyLink Cloud account admin in order to set up a new ARM provider in Cloud Application Manager. This tutorial demonstrates the alert message that will display if a non-admin attempts to create a new ARM provider.

Error: Non-Admin Setting Up a Provider

Setting Up a New Provider

After you log-in into Cloud Application Manager, click the Provider tab on the top toolbar.

Cloud Application Manager Create New Provider

Then click New Provider on the left navigation bar.

Select Azure Resource Manager to build a customer account in the current Microsoft Azure. Note: this is the new Azure, not the classic Azure. The dialog box that appears will enable you to create a new Azure customer account. Add a name for the account and select the Create a new Azure customer account option.

Click Connect a CenturyLink Cloud Account and enter your CLC account admin credentials. This ties Azure directly into the CenturyLink Cloud billing service.

The Exception Message

For billing purposes, only a CenturyLink Cloud account admin is able to approve Azure usage charges. We assume non-admins have not been given high-enough permissions to be able to approve those charges. Therefore, if a non-admin attempts to create a new Azure Customer, you will see the following exception message.

"Thank you for your interest in gaining access to Integrated Azure. A centuryLink Cloud account administrator for your account as the ability to provide access to you. Please visit to learn how to locate your account administrator."
