Signin to Azure Portal using AAD account RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have now synced our on-premise AD with Azure AD and I am able to login to the Azure portal using my Azure AD credentials. Although I can log in, I am unable to see any Azure subscriptions?

    We do have a corporate subscription and my work email has been assigned administrator privileges to the subscription, but I cannot see the subscription when I log in using my AAD login (work or school account option).

    I must note, this is not a Office365 subscription. Our domain is only synced with Azure AD.

    Are we doing something wrong, or is it not possible to log into the subscription using my AAD account?

  • Does your actual work account (ie synced on-prem account) have access to the subscription?

    If you login to then go into subscriptions, can you add your work account (on-prem) to be an admin in that subscription?

  • That's the thing... I don't see the subscription, because the colleague that has to assign it, says he did assign me access, but his understanding is that I need an Office365 account to access the subscription.

    So basically, if he assigns it to my work account, I should be able to access it - even though it is only a work account and not an Office 365 account?

  • If he assigns you access to your work account then it should work. Can you confirm with him that he did not assign access to your microsoft account instead?

  • The issue is caused by the MSDN allocation i.e. the work account was used to assign a MSDN Visual Studio subscription (and in turn a MSDN Azure subscription). The same account is then used to assign the Enterprise Azure subscription. The portal does not seem to be able to handle the dual use. Any suggestions?

  • In order to use an Azure AD user to sign in to an Azure subscription, this subscription must be associated/linked to that Azure AD tenant. Is this the case?
