Don’t Forget Those Paused Indexes

Arun Sirpal tries to create a new index on his Azure SQL Database:

I was creating some demo non-clustered indexes in one of my Azure SQL Databases and received the following warning when I executed this code:

CREATE NONCLUSTERED INDEX [dbo.NCI_Time]
ON [dbo].[Audit] ([UserId])
INCLUDE ([DefID],[ShopID])

Msg 10637, Level 16, State 3, Line 7

Cannot perform this operation on ‘object’ with ID 1093578934 as one or more indexes are currently in resumable index rebuild state. Please refer to sys.index_resumable_operations for more details.

How intriguing!

Fortunately, the error message is clear and helpful, two terms which rarely go in conjunction with “error message.”
