Configure a Microsoft organizational account to access your Microsoft Azure subscription
To link the Bitnami Launchpad for Microsoft Azure with your Microsoft Azure subscription, you will need either a “Microsoft work or school account” or a Microsoft organizational account with permission to access your Microsoft Azure subscription.
Find instructions to create a new Microsoft organizational account in our FAQ. Once the Microsoft organizational account has been created, follow the steps below to grant it access to your Microsoft Azure subscription:
- Log in to the Microsoft Azure portal using your primary account.
From the left navigation menu and select the “Subscriptions” menu item. Select the subscription you wish to use when launching servers through the Bitnami Launchpad for Microsoft Azure.
In the resulting menu, select the “Access Control (IAM)” menu item. On the resulting page, click the “Add” button.
On the “Add permissions” page, select the new Microsoft organizational account created above and assign it the “Contributor” role. Click “Save” to save the new permissions.
NOTE: Log out of the Microsoft Azure portal before linking the Bitnami Launchpad for Microsoft Azure with your Microsoft organizational account, as you will encounter problems if you remain signed in with your primary account credentials.
