How do I change the "Default Directory" or default subscription when I log into the portal? RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I login to the Windows Azure portal it redirects me to a URL like:

    https://manage.windowsazure.com/@{SomeOneElsesAccount}hotmail.onmicrosoft.com?whr=live.com#Workspaces/All/dashboard

    If I look at the URL I can see the email of a friend's account not mine.

    If I click on the Subscription drop down his account is listed as the "Default Directory" even though I no longer have access.

    How do I remove his account/subscription/directory from my account?

    How do I change my subscription as the default, so that when I login the URL is more like: https://manage.windowsazure.com/@{my email}.onmicrosoft.com#Workspaces/All/dashboard

    I have also asked this here...

    See the image below.  The one listed as "default directory" I no longer have access to.

  • Hi Gary,

    Did you use the organizational accounts ? I guess your login account was added by "SomeOneElsesAccount" . When we used azure AD account to logging into portal, the url show the "SomeOneElsesAccount" message on the portal. If you didn't show other user message, I suggest you could use Microsoft account to login. Also, I suggest you read this document (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windowsazure/hh531793.aspx ) firstly.

    Any question, please let me know.

    Thanks

    Regards,

    Will

  • I had the other individual remove me from their account.  This changed my default subscription to the next one in the list.
