Good afternoon, I write for a question, I just bought a license enters p2 since I want to try some functionalities of the azure monitor, but I see that it asks me for a subscription to which this refers, I have already bought enters p2 or is that I must create the subscription and associate my license enters p2, this would affect the rest of my organization and my other global admin can continue to manage azure in a way with the license free?

    Hi @Jose IT Junior ,

    Subscriptions and licenses in Azure are different. A subscription is your agreement with Microsoft to use Microsoft services, for which charges accrue based on either a per-user license fee or on cloud-based resource consumption. A license allows a specific user account to use the services of the cloud offering. This concept is covered in greater depth in Subscriptions, licenses, accounts, and tenants for Microsoft's cloud offerings.

    When you buy a subscription, you specify the number of licenses that you need, based on how many people you have in your organization. After you buy a subscription, you create accounts for people in your organization, and then assign a license to each person.

    An organization can have multiple subscriptions, a subscription can have multiple licenses, and licenses can be assigned to individual user accounts within an Azure AD tenant. Certain services require a subscription and a billable tenant with a credit card attached, depending on whether the services are using a cloud-based consumption model or a per-user licensing model. The subscription would be associated with the tenant and the licenses would be associated with the users.
