Azure Login - ADFS versus Live Account RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have an Azure account that is linked to our Microsoft EA. When we originally opened it we did not have ADFS in place to federate with Azure/O365/InTune so the account is associated with our Live IDs. Since then we are trying to take advantage of the Azure/DPM 2012 SP1 backup integration but it is looking for our ADFS account. Is there a way to change the association of our Azure account away from our current setup of using a Live ID to our ADFS or even being able to authenticate to the account via both methods?

  • There is a limitation in the current portal that you can only add an organizational identity (e.g. an AAD/O365/ADFS federated identity) as a co-admin (or as the service admin) to a subscription if that subscription was created under an organizational account.

    Azure customer support can add your organizational identity as a co-administrator on the subscription, however. Once that is done, you can sign in with that account and then proceed to add other organizational identities that exist in the same domain as co-administrators to the subscription.

    Hope that helps

  • HI

    You can go to Account’s Tab: https://account.windowsazure.com/subscriptions/

    Here you will see all your subscription. Select the subscription whose service administrator you wish to change.

    click  “Edit Subscription Details” and change your LIVE ID Associated.
