How to move the billing of an existing Azure subscription to under Microsoft for Startups credits?

trust56 20 Reputation points


Let's assume that I have an Azure subscription already, used some virtual machines for a while, and several other kinds of resources as well. Now I applied to Microsoft for Startups, successfully received a bunch of Azure credits to spend. Is it possible to change the billing of such already existing Azure subscription to make it be payed with these Startups credits? If yes, how exactly? You see, if possible, I don't want to migrate all my Azure resources from the old subscription the a new one.

Thanks in advance for all your answers!

    Hi Zsolt,

    You can use the move feature in the portal to move resource groups from one subscription to another:
