Are there plans to allow easy switching between diffrent Azure AD accounts in the Windows desktop client?


At the moment, I have to unsubscribe and subscribe to switch accounts (unless I am missing something?).

Yes - its crazy.. :) Did you ever find a solution for this issue?

@Christian_Pedersen @jmh_7 This is not supported yet but certainly something we want to bring in a future release. Are you needing this functionality primarily for testing as an admin or do end users have 2 accounts?

@David Belanger for me it is both.

 

We want to give "guest" users access to a hostpool in our tenant so that they can use a specific application. While actual guest users are not supported, this would be mean creating an account for them in our Azure AD to access the resource. Therefore there could be a case where they access hostpools in their own tenant, and in our tenant, therefore two different accounts needed. At the moment the easiest way I see for this is to set up different profiles in the browser (Edge/Chrome) and access via the web client, but open to suggestions.

 

Thanks

@David Belanger I would like to promote this feature request. Is there an ETA to be shared?

This now exists. You can now add multiple accounts to both the WVD client and the Windows Store RD client.

@jmh_7 Do you have the link or documentation for this?
