Unable to create a new E5 Developer subscription

Copper Contributor

Hi all!

I'm trying to apply for a free E5 Developer subscription, to try out an MS Teams apps and MS 365 add-ins development workflow, while my employer evaluates whether to get into the market.

I've joined the MS 365 Developer Program with my personal account, and they say, I should see a big blue "Set up E5 subscription" button on my dashboard.

The problem is - I have nothing in its place.



Does anybody know if this program is still continued? Maybe I did something wrong in configuring my account?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Having the exact same problem!

Well, it seems, Microsoft has suspended an access to these subscriptions for some indefinite "short term".

We can only hope, this terms does prove itself short indeed.
i still same not " Thank you for joining. You don't current qualify for a Microsoft 365 Developer Program sandbox subscription." how can i get subscription?
The free DEV subscription was a huge help. I guess it was also being 'abused' to an extend by a few and might be the reason why they have pulled the plug for the time being.

I had even documented the whole process with a view to help others.

I was facing the as it issue but its better to contact with their support via wa mod apk hopefully they will respond
