I am trying to claim the Azure DevOps organisation with the same name as my company but I do know who the owner/administrator is. We own the Github organisation/URL of the same name. Has GitHub automatically created this organisation in Azure DEvOps?

Logging on to https://dev.azure.com/[org] gives the error
401 - Uh-oh, you do not have access.
There is no "Claim organisation" button visible on this error page as suggested by https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/devops/organizations/accounts/resolve-orphaned-organization?view=azure-devops#when-you-dont-have-an-azure-devops-administrator
So we know the organisation exists but how can we tell if the owner/administrator is one of our accounts or someone else entirely?

    @Stephen Miller MHA We would suggest you to post the query on the Azure DevOps Developer Community for this for better assistance on the same. The Developer Community is specialized for the Azure DevOps related questionnaire.
