This morning I tried to move our VSTS (Visual Studio Team Services) account, from one Resource Group, to another. The reasoning of this is that all of our services that are used to managed everything else (i.e shared) are contained in one Resource Group.

I tried to move the Team Services account to another Resource Group and it seemed like it was working.

But I received this really unhelpful error:

There was an error moving resources. Resources '/subscriptions/1111111-2222-3333-4444-55555555555/resourceGroups/ResourceGroupName/providers/microsoft.visualstudio/account/vsname' could not be moved. The tracking Id is '55555555-4444-3333-2222-111111111111111' (Code: ResourceMoveFailed)

 (Code: BadRequest)

I tried this a few times, and finally contacted Azure support.

Unfortuantly they replied with the following:

Unfortunately, we can’t move resource groups for VSTS. This feature is in engineering team’s backlog and I don’t have a timeline on it.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

Conclusion

So, there you go. I’m really sorry if you found this looking for a solution. It’s not currently possible. I will update if/when this is possible.

Happy Thursday!
