Azure Subscription

Changing the associated directory for your Azure Subscription

This is a short post for all of you who did the same mistake as me when signing up for my Azure Subscription. You named it something stupid like aebtd01, with the result that whenever you login, the URL for your subscription is aebtd01.onmicrosoft.com. Actually, it’s no big deal, but it’s a bit annoying.

The process is actually quite easy. Go to the Microsoft Azure Active Directory and add a new directory. This time, just give it a better name.

02AddNewDirectory

Then, go to Settings, and mark the subscription you want to change, and click Edit Directory.

03EditDirectory

Then choose the newly created directory, and click Next

04ChangeAssociatedDirectoryStep1

On the confirm page, verify that there is no problem regarding co-administrators, and the click Finish

05ChangeAssociatedDirectoryStep2

When the change is done (takes about 5 seconds), click OK, and the webpage will refresh.

06ClickOK

Finally, check that the URL is correct, and you are done
