How to change subscriptions on my services RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    When I signed up with Windows Azure I used the Pay-as-you-go subscription. I have since linked up my MSDN subscription and want to change my services to use my Visual Studio subscription which allows me some free credits as opposed to being charged with the Pay-as-you-go option. How can I change me services to use my MSDN subscription? Do I have to delete and re-create these services or is there a way to make the switch?

  • hi Rob,

    Thanks for you posting!

    You could add your MSDN subscription into your account, about how to add subscription, I recommend you refer to this blog:http://blogs.msdn.com/b/arunrakwal/archive/2012/04/09/what-is-azure-subscription-and-how-to-setup-a-windows-azure-subscription.aspx

    If you want to change your subscription, firstly, you need add your Live ID or Hotmail into your subscription as Co-Administrator. And after you used you account to login on Azure,  you could select subscription on Azure portal, You could see the "Filter Button Icon" in right-top portal page. You could select the subscription by clicking Filter button.

    If you'd like to transfer your service form one subscription to another,please see this document:
