Azure subscriptions in same billing profile

Hi,

I have two Azure subscriptions. Both are type: "Microsoft Customer Agreement". For both I am Billing account owner and I have a Global Admin account to manage all resources in the subscriptions.

My Azure Portal settings | Directories + subscriptions is correctly set to show all subscriptions by default.
Whenever I go to Azure > Cost Management + Billing > Azure subscriptions I only see one subscription which is my later added second subscription.
Whenever I go to Azure > Search: subscriptions > Subscriptions I do see both subscriptions.
Whenever I go to Azure > Cost Management + Billing > Billing profiles I only see one billing profile which is used for my later added second subscription.

I want to know why I only see 1 subscription in Azure > Cost Management + Billing > Azure subscriptions. The reason I'm asking this is because I want both subscriptions to appear on one invoice and to do so, unless I'm mistaken, I could presumably add all subscriptions to one billing profile but since both subscriptions don't show up in the appropriate menu's I cannot configure that.

    I figured it out (...i think).

    I made a O365 tenant + Exchange Online instance when I was still new to O365 years ago. Purchased and setup everything with user@mydomain.com. Later on, I started using Azure services too and created a subscription for that using the same user@mydomain.com.
    Figured later on that since I use user@mydomain.com as mail account it's probably better security wise to create a separate Global Admin, globaladmin@mydomain.com account and not use user@mydomain.com to manage my O365 tenant/Azure.
    Fast forward years later, I create a new, 2nd Azure subscription within my existing Azure environment and I use my later separated Global Admin account to create the 2nd subscription.
    This results in two things:

    • 1st subscription still has a billing account tied to user@mydomain.com
    • 2nd subscription has a billing account tied to globaladmin@mydomain.com

    This in turn results in some other conditions:

    • Both subscriptions turn up in Azure > Search: subscriptions > Subscriptions (which is good) and both subscriptions are manageable within my existing Azure environment (also good).
    • Both subscriptions don't show up simultaneously in Azure > Cost Management + Billing > Azure subscriptions. To manage the preferred subscription in the Billing section I have to log in to the portal with the mail address that has been used to create the subscription.

    Very confusing but I think I can fix it by going to user@mydomain.com > Azure > Cost Management + Billing > Azure subscriptions > Transfer billing ownership to globaladmin@mydomain.com

    Are my assumptions correct?
