This one caught me out whilst importing an already existing Azure App Service plan into Terraform state.

ID was missing the serverfarms elementTerraform

It wasn’t until I actually read through the error shown below that I realised the answer was staring me in the face! The azure_service_plan import command published in the Terraform documentation uses an upper case F in serverFarms, meaning that the serverfarms element isn’t actually included.

So just change serverFarms to serverfarms.
