Error creating Azure SQL Database

A quick post today, quite simply, the error message is:

“code”: “ConflictingDatabaseOperation”,  “message”: “Operation on server x and database y is in progress.  Please wait a few minutes before trying again.”

What is going on here? Well for this example (and maybe yours) I created a database called X then I decided to abort the operation within couple of seconds because I missed some important configuration setup. Then I was very quick to initiate a new create request with the same database name called X.

This caused a conflict because the server still registered the first database creation name. So, the morale of the story here? If you have deleted a database wait for the success message to appear before you start creating it again.

Just click on that redeploy option as shown below.
