    Hi @Francisco Javier Rosas Lara Thanks for reaching out to us on Microsoft Q&A platform. Happy to assist!

    Scenario #1: If I understand correctly, you are trying to use VS subscription benefits on Azure subscription which appears to be disabled. If your Visual Studio subscription $150 monthly credit benefit appears disabled in your Azure subscription, there are a few things you can try to resolve the issue:

    Make sure that your Visual Studio subscription is active and that you have linked it to your Azure subscription. You can check this by going to the Visual Studio Subscriptions portal and verifying that your subscription is active and linked to your Azure subscription.

    Check that you have the necessary permissions to use the benefit. You must be the owner or a contributor of the Azure subscription to use the Visual Studio subscription $150 monthly credit benefit.

    Verify that the benefit has not been fully used up for the month. The $150 monthly credit benefit is a monthly allowance that resets at the beginning of each month. If you have already used up the entire allowance for the month, the benefit will appear disabled until the next month.

    Check that the benefit is enabled for your subscription. You can do this by going to the Azure portal, selecting your subscription, and then going to the "Usage + quotas" section. If the Visual Studio subscription $150 monthly credit benefit is not listed, you may need to contact Microsoft support to enable it.

    If none of these steps resolve the issue, you may need to contact Microsoft support for further assistance. They can help you troubleshoot the issue and ensure that the benefit is properly enabled for your subscription.

    Scenario #2: If you are planning to link/transfer your VS subscription benefits to other Azure subscriptions, then that is not possible.User's image
