Blocked myself out of tenant due to 'cross-tenant' access policy.

Copper Contributor

Hi - I made the rookie mistake and configured a cross-tenant access policy on my free/pay as you go Azure tenant. Now I am in a situation where I cannot access. The login account was my personal gmail account. (hence the blocked access). TIL that cross tenant blocks include your personal email, though it is the GA.

Any suggestions?

If your account has an alternate UPN suffix, you could try using that instead. For instance, all accounts have the suffx appended under-the-hood.


If you have another account in the tenant that is a Global Admin, that may be the only other recourse.
