Azure can’t find your Microsoft account

To get access to a Azure subscription with an user account, the account must exist either in your Azure Active Directory (AAD) or as Microsoft account.

This blogpost is about a really annoying thing with Microsoft accounts used in Azure.

Let’s say you created a Microsoft account like user_abz@outlook.com and you try to add it to a subscription in Azure and Azure won’t find it!

Classic portal

microsoftaccountclassic

New portal

microsoftaccountarm

 

Strange isn’t it? First I thought that I had to register my @outlook.com-address as a Microsoft account in the same way like you do if you’re using a non-Microsoftbased e-mailaddress. But this wasn’t the case – you get the information that your outlook.com-account already is an Microsoft account.

So what’s the problem?

Microsoft accounts have a nice feature that make it’s possible to add other e-mailaccounts (aliases) to the actual Microsoft account and log in with those accounts to your Microsoft account.

The thing is that if one of those e-mailaccounts is selected as ”primary e-mailaccount”, it’s address becomes the primary account identifier!

Login at https://account.windowsazure.com and try to register for an Azure trial subscription, you will get some information about which e-mailaddress that is choosen as your Microsoft account:

Azureaccounttrial

So let’s try to add the alias address to the Azure subscription:

microsoftaccountsuccess

And the Microsoft (alias) account is successfully added to your subscription!

Deploy to Azure Button

The Deploy to Azure Button is a really nice feature for users (or companies) to deploy things to Azure through templates from GitHub. It’s also a great way for software companies to make it easy to deploy their products to Azure.

Read more about it at http://www.bradygaster.com/post/the-deploy-to-azure-button or https://azure.microsoft.com/sv-se/blog/deploy-to-azure-button-for-azure-websites-2/ Then use the Azure wizard to set it up: https://deploy.azure.com/
