I'm using different Live IDs to separate roles: for Azure account management, a Live ID "A", for a particular Azure subscription Live ID "B". Now I want to create an account in the Azure Marketplace and publish our app. Can I use an arbitrary
Live ID "C" or do I have to use one of "A" or "B"?
My goal is to separate general account administration, subscription (i.e. technical) administration, and marketplace administration, hence I'd like to use three distinct Live IDs.
There is no official document or content to say which Live ID it should be associated with, but I think using all different IDs is not a good idea. Hard to control and remember for long run, and if any issue need help from Microsoft, it is hard to trace
the info for same member with different ID. Also if you use our other products like XBox, would you use anohter one. But if I have to make a choice between them, I choose account. Any subscribing and purchase are based on it. For more issue about it, you can
get help from here:
From my point of view it is a good idea, because it enables separation of roles. I understand it may complicate things as well, but that's a price I'm willing to pay. Also, I prefer using non-personal Live ID with artificial email addresses to make them
less dependent on a specific person within the company.
I was also asking because I experienced conflicts between Windows Phone Marketplace and the new Seller Dashboard for apps for Office/SharePoint. I had to use the same Live ID, because internally the two marketplaces share portion (yes, only a portion) of
profile and tax data. That's why I'm now concerned how the Azure Marketplace works not to screw things at first.
So if there are no clear limitations, I try to proceed with Live ID "C" from my example.
