How to check your SQL Server Quota in Azure?

Azure Subscription Usages for SQL Server

 

Last week we reached our Logical server Quota in Azure. By default you’re only allowed to add 20 Logical Servers, but we wanted to have some more for testing purposes.

Microsoft Support

You can submit a support ticket trough the Azure Portal to request more SQL Servers. After replying some answers about the reason and the purpose of requesting more servers, they added the requested quota to our West Europe region.
So far so good, but then the question came back if I could check if these servers where added. I’ve been looking everywhere in the Azure Portal, but couldn’t find it.

Powershell Command

The only way to check your SQL Server quota is by following the documentation(below) where you can find power shell command to check SQL server quota.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/rest/api/sql/subscriptionusages/listbylocation

On the documentation site there’s a REST API which you can try and you get the results back which you need.

Subscription Usage Metrics

Click on the Try It button and log in to your Azure Tenant. Select the correct subsciption and Location Name, in this case West Europe.

REST API URL Request

Run the Command and you wil get the following result:

Hopefully this will help you the next time you need to find your quota’s. Thank you for reading.
