Completely migrate DevOps Organisation to new Tenant and Subscription

Occasional Contributor

hope this question besides here.


Can anyone confirm the steps needed to completely migrate a DevOps Organisation to a new Tenant and Subscription.


The first steps are obvious:


Currently there is a MPN Subscription in use (also for DevOps billing) even with that i don't see problems, as we could change the billing Sub to f.e. a PAYG Sub during Migration.


The main concern is about whats "inside" our projects:


  • We use ServicePrincipals for deploying into AppServives and others
  • We have some service connections to GitBucket and other


Even if the change to the new AD Tenant and billing Subscription goes smooth


We would need to recreate all ServicePrincipels at the point we would migrate our AppServices and other services in to a subscription within the new tenant?

Even if we migrate out MPN Subscription (via support case) we would need to create all needed SP in the new tenant and modify the pipelines which use them.

Are we correct?
Did anyone else a migration like this on?

Appreciate all your feedbacks

Hello @Benjamin Graus ,


All the migrations I have done in the past involved Support teams. It could be really delicate in terms of user account (in new and old tenant), user/team related queries, dashboard, boards, permissions... and service connections. Support could help you link new user acccounts with old ones, not to loose track of history changes. My guess is you need to recreate every service connection (that is what I remember, did my last one 4 years ago), that cannot be migrated to new AD. I would involve Support 100% in the process.
