Can someone explain if the Microsoft Teams trial is connected to the self-service signup for Azure Active Directory? 

 

We have disabled self-service signup for Azure Active Directory some time ago. We only see the option to disable the Office store at O365 admin center > settings > services & add-ins > user owned Apps and Services. In my own tenant, the "let users install trial apps and services" option is not missing. 

 

Are we missing this option because we have disabled the self-service signup?

Update: have opened a ticket with MSFT support. Here's what they shared with me:

 

A: The "let users install trial apps and services" feature has a dependency on the self-service sign-up, being a service where the user can sing up himself. In order to benefit from this feature, you can enable the "self-service sign up" again...

 

Q: What I understand is that the new feature can only be used to disable the Microsoft Teams trial. Transitioning to the new option in the admin center would result in opening up all the other applications that make use of self-service sign up (PowerApps, Flow, Stream etc.). Is this correct?

 

A: By enabling the self-service sign-up, you'll enable the access to all other services that are making use of self-service sign up, exactly as you stated in your question. 

Update 2: we now have the "let users install trial apps and services" option as well, while we didn't enable Azure self-service sign-ups.  The reason why it wasn't showing was probably because it wasn't yet rolled out for our tenant.
