Connect an Azure subscription to an Office 365 Developer subscription

My employer has granted me a “Visual Studio Enterprise” subscription. This allows for an Office 365 Developer subscription and an Azure subscription with €130 monthly credit. These subscriptions are not connected by default which is not useful when you want to connect to Azure services from PowerApps and/or Flow.

It is possible to connect these subscriptions and this blog post explains how.

2 accounts are being used:

  • A global administrator of the Office 365 Developer subscription.
  • The account having the “Visual Studio Enterprise” subscription.

I executed the following actions (on 2019-04-07):

  1. Global administrator
    1. Login to the Azure portal.
    2. Create a guest user account with an email address of the account having the “Visual Studio Enterprise” subscription.
  2. Account with “Visual Studio Enterprise” subscription
    1. Act on the invitation email.
  3. Global administrator
    1. Check that the invitation has been accepted.
  4. Account with “Visual Studio Enterprise” subscription
    1. Login the Azure portal.
    2. Click on “Home”.
    3. Click on the “Visual Studio Enterprise” subscription.
    4.  Within the subscription information panel, there is the option to change directory. Click on it.
    5. Within the “To” dropdown, the Office 365 Developer subscription is available now. Select it and click on “Change”.
    6. Use the directory switcher to set the default directory to the Office 365 Developer subscription.
    7. Switch to the “new” directory.

That’s it. The Azure subscription is now connected to the Office 365 Developer subscription.
