Another approach is to attempt to visit the Azure Enterprise Portal. If you can reach it successfully, then you already have either the Enterprise Admin or the Account Owner role. If you cannot access the Azure Enterprise Portal, then please inquire within your organization to find out who your Enterprise Admin is, and ask that person to add you as an Account Owner within the Azure Enterprise Portal.
If you are unable to find this person, you can submit a support ticket and request the contact information. You need your organization's name and your Enterprise Agreement enrollment number for the support ticket. No, these prepaid funds are not eligible for purchasing Visual Studio cloud subscriptions. When you choose an Azure subscription that was created for your EA to purchase Visual Studio cloud subscriptions, the charges will appear on your next "overage" invoice.
Typically this happens monthly, but due to historical rules for some EA customers, an overage invoice might not be issued for several months. Please consult a licensing specialist for your EA if you need to know what amount of additional purchases purchases which are not eligible for Azure Monetary Commitment funds will trigger an overage invoice.
How charges are processed Q: How are monthly cloud subscription charges processed? At the first purchase, we bill a prorated quantity to cover the remaining days in the current month. On the first of May, and each month thereafter until you cancel, the full 10 units will be billed. When you increase the paid quantity later, we also prorate the increased units to cover the remaining days in the current month. So if you bought 1 more Visual Studio Professional monthly cloud subscription on May 10, we would bill roughly 0.
How are annual cloud subscription charges processed? At each purchase, we bill the full quantity purchased immediately.
Charges are not spread over the year and there is no prorating. If you buy annual cloud subscriptions at different times in the year, you will have subscriptions renewing in different months.
We do not make all of a customer's annual cloud subscriptions coterminous as is common with Microsoft volume licensing agreement purchasing.
How do cancelations work? When you cancel a Visual Studio cloud subscription, you are canceling automatic renewal. The subscription continues until its normal renewal date and then simply expires.
At expiration, the Visual Studio subscriber can no longer use Visual Studio or any other benefits from the subscription. With monthly cloud subscriptions, cancelations take effect the first day of the next month. If you only cancel some of your monthly cloud subscriptions, be sure to remove users on the first of the next month to ensure that the correct people continue to have active subscriptions assigned.
For annual cloud subscriptions, cancelations take effect the first day of the month following 12 months from the original purchase, or 12 months from the last annual renewal charge. For instance, if you bought a Visual Studio Professional annual cloud subscription on January 3, then it remains active until February 1, when it automatically renews for another year. If you cancel at any time between then and February 1, then the subscription will expire on February 1, There is no rebate for canceling part way through the subscription year with annual cloud subscriptions.
