AI-900: How to increase Azure subscription quota limit for SQL database instances

Learn how to create a support request to increase your Azure subscription quota limit for SQL database instances and why other options are not valid.


Tradewind Traders has recently migrated to Azure cloud services. Users have deployed multiple resources since the migration however today one of the developers has received a message when creating several SQL database instances stating that that the Azure subscription limits must be increased. What must be done to increase this limit?

A. Create a service health alert
B. Upgrade your support plan
C. Create a new support request.
D. Modify an Azure policy


C. Create a new support request.


Many Azure resources have quota limits. The purpose of the quota limits is to help you control your Azure costs. It is common to require an increase to the default quota. You can request a quota limit increase by opening a support request. Selecting your subscription and the service you want to increase the quota in this case SQL Database Managed Instance would be the quota type.

The correct answer is C. Create a new support request.

Some Azure services have adjustable quotas, which are the assigned number of resources for your Azure subscription. Each quota represents a specific countable resource, such as the number of SQL database instances you can create. The default quota value for each resource may vary depending on the type of subscription you have. If you want to raise the quota above the default limit, you need to open an online customer support request at no charge.

A service health alert is used to notify you about service issues that may affect your Azure resources, such as outages or planned maintenance. It does not help you increase your quota limit.

An Azure support plan is a subscription that gives you access to technical support and other benefits from Microsoft. It does not affect your quota limit directly, although some support plans may allow you to create support requests faster or with higher priority.

An Azure policy is a service that helps you enforce organizational standards and assess compliance at scale. It does not allow you to modify your quota limit, but it can help you manage your resource consumption and prevent overspending.
