Using a Single Windows Azure Active Directory tenant for All EA Azure Subscriptions

As you know by now Windows Azure Active Directory is at the root of every Azure subscription.

But in an EA setup you typically have multiple subscriptions and you definitely don’t want to create a different WAAD tenant for every other subscription. So here’s what you can do (there might be other ways too of achieving this). You can first create a Shared account and under that a Shared Subscription. Also create the WAAD tenant you want to use and ensure your shared subscription is under that WAAD tenant. In that WAAD tenant create all the account administrators.

Now go to your EA portal, and add new accounts specifying the account administrators you just created. That’s it – next when you create subscriptions for those newly created accounts, these subscriptions will be by default part of the same WAAD tenant under which you created your shared subscription.

It can’t get any easier, isn’t it 🙂 ?
