Service Principal issues on Panorama Plugin for Azure

L2 Linker

While setting up the Service Principal on Panorama Plugin for Azure, even though the IAM role of reader seems to be properly defined in Azure we get this error message during the validation phase:

ERROR: Validation of #######-####-####-############ failed with msg Failed to validate credentials with error - Failed to validated Azure Monitoring permissions and Deployment permissions. Error: Failed to validate monitoring permissions. Error: Missing permission for 'Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/read', please update service principal.

Any ideea what else might cause this? Most probably is something very simple we are missing but we run out of troubleshooting leads now and any suggestion will be highly appreciated.

Yes, I'm having this issue as well and have a TAC case open, but so far no luck - please post if you find a solution!

PLUG-7780 - When the monitoring definition service principle for VM monitoring in Azure is configured correctly on the Panorama plugin for Azure 3.0.x with PAN-OS 10.0.x, the service principal validation check displays as failed under 
Panorama > Azure > Setup > Service Principal

Please find the list of actions/permissions required to support monitoring for the Azure 3.0.1 plugin below:


The list of permissions required to enable monitoring are as below:

"actions": [


With these permissions assigned to a service principal, validation will fail but the monitoring functionality is not affected and the 3.0.1 plugin will continue to function as designed.
