Azure portal and the new account manager!
Published Nov 09 2018 09:00 AM 16.5K Views

Howdy folks,


Today, I’m happy to share Microsoft’s new account manager with you! The account manager makes it SO much easier for you to use multiple accounts with Microsoft services.


With the new account manager you:


  • Can sign in and out of your Azure Active Directory (AD) account or your Microsoft account.
  • Can view and switch between your remembered accounts. (For this feature to work, your browser must have third-party cookies enabled.)
  • Always have a link in the same place to view or manage your account.

The account manager is now available to everyone on Azure portal. Azure portal users, especially developers, often have many different Azure AD and Microsoft accounts. They frequently need dev, test, and production accounts and in some cases also have their own personal Azure subscriptions as well. So Azure is the perfect first place to launch our account manager and learn from the customers who most need this capability.

The Azure portal is the first Microsoft site to adopt the account manager. You’ll start to see it appear in many other Microsoft services over the next 6-9 months, including the Azure DevOps and services as well as apps like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, the Microsoft Store, and more!


We really hope you like using the new account manager and as always, we’d love to receive any feedback or suggestions you have!
