Create a tenant in Windows Virtual Desktop

Copper Contributor

I'm trying to follow this tutorial:


However, I cannot even grant permissions to windows virtual desktop. I have global admin access. I get the error: I follow the link, and it gives me error Selected user account does not exist in tenant 'MS Azure Cloud' and cannot access the application 'xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx' in that tenant. The account needs to be added as an external user in the tenant first. Please use a different account.


If the application code needs to be un-x'd let me know. Thank you!
