New-AzureRmResourceGroupDeployment generates the following error:
New-AzureRmResourceGroupDeployment ` -Name $resourceDeploymentName ` -ResourceGroupName $resourceGroupName ` -TemplateFile $template ` @additionalParameters ` -Verbose -Force New-AzureRmResourceGroupDeployment : A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name ‘xxxxxxxxxxx’. At line:5 char:5 + @additionalParameters ` + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : InvalidArgument: (:) [New-AzureRmResourceGroupDeployment], ParameterBindingException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : NamedParameterNotFound,Microsoft.Azure.Commands.ResourceManager.Cmdlets.Implementation.NewAzureResourceGroupDeploymentCmdlet
This kind of error seems fairly in tune with the experience I have had so far with the AzureRM PowerShell module, i.e. the error has seemingly nothing to do with the actual problem. While I spent a fair amount of time checking the parameter ‘xxxxxx’ in the ARM JSON file and found nothing wrong, it turned out that a syntax error elsewhere in the file was causing the problem. An error message pointing to that kind of problem would have been a lot more helpful!
Solve the syntax issue and this error goes away.
