    I see that you want to move below mentioned services from one subscrioption to another:

    1. Document intelligence

    For Document Intelligence and Translator, you can move the resources to another subscription by following the steps below:

    1. In the Azure portal, navigate to the resource group containing the resource you want to move.
    2. Select the resource you want to move.
    3. In the resource's menu, select "Move".
    4. Select "Move to another subscription".
    5. Follow the prompts to select the target subscription and resource group.

    For Azure OpenAI, you can move the resources to another subscription by following the steps below:

    1. In the Azure portal, navigate to the resource group containing the resource you want to move.
    2. Select the resource you want to move.
    3. In the resource's menu, select "Export template".
    4. Follow the prompts to export the resource template to a storage account.
    5. In the target subscription, navigate to the resource group where you want to deploy the resource.
    6. Select "Add a resource".
    7. Search for "Template deployment".
    8. Select "Build your own template in the editor".
    9. Copy and paste the exported template into the editor.
    10. Follow the prompts to deploy the resource to the new subscription.

    Documentation reference: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-resource-manager/management/move-support-resources#microsoftcognitiveservices

    Managed identities are specific to the Azure AD tenant where your Azure subscription is hosted. They don't get updated if a subscription gets moved to a different directory. If a subscription gets moved, you'll need to recreate and configure the identities.

    For system-assigned managed identities, you can disable and re-enable them after the subscription is moved to another directory. This will recreate the managed identity in the new directory.

    For user-assigned managed identities, you will need to delete and recreate them in the new directory. You will also need to update any resources that were using the old managed identity to use the new one.

    Please note that moving resources between subscriptions may incur additional costs and may require additional configuration.
