Issue with Entra ID

Mikhail Padalko 0 Reputation points

Almost 10 years ago, my friends and I were in a startup called IrisCheck, and we used Azure cloud services for the product. We won the Imagine Cup back then, and had a full subscription for a year or a couple of years (I don't quite remember by now).

Now I want to try today's version of Azure and do exercises for some Databricks courses using a trial subscription.

But I didn't notice when I first logged into the Azure portal and activated the trial subscription that I still was in that super-old IrisCheck Active Directory.

After noticing that, I tried to delete everything, and I seemed to succeed:

  • I deleted all the users and recourses related to the IrisCheck tenant,
  • I canceled and three days later (due to the restrictions) deleted the subscription,
  • Lastly, I deleted the IrisCheck tenant itself.

And now after opening the Entra ID page, I constantly (signing in again doesn't help) receive the following error message (copied details below):unnamed

  "sessionId": "c6b4c070df6a4b4184ed960610256c8e",
  "errors": [
      "errorMessage": "interaction_required: AADSTS16000: User account '{EmailHidden}' from identity provider '' does not exist in tenant 'Microsoft Services' and cannot access the application '74658136-14ec-4630-ad9b-26e160ff0fc6'(ADIbizaUX) in that tenant. The account needs to be added as an external user in the tenant first. Sign out and sign in again with a different Azure Active Directory user account.

      "clientId": "74658136-14ec-4630-ad9b-26e160ff0fc6",
      "scopes": [

How can I completely detach my account ( from that super-old IrisCheck space and delete it?
Or maybe you can just delete everything related to IrisCheck on your side?
I also sent this request to but haven't received any answer yet.

Thank you!

    Hello @Mikhail Padalko ,

    Thank you for reaching out to Microsoft Azure QnA platform. I have reviewed the session details and see you are trying to connect on Microsoft Azure Portal using Personal Account. The error you are facing is a design behavior and has been answered/documented by one of my colleagues on following QnA post:

    Adding content from above QnA post on this thread for your reference: Issue: When Users are trying to login to Azure portal using their personal Microsoft Account (Outlook, Gmail, Hotmail..) they are getting AADSTS160021 or AADSTS16000 or AADSTS50020 errors. Reason:

    • Whenever you sign in Azure portal using Microsoft Personal Account you by default get connected to the Microsoft Services tenant (f8cdef31-a31e-4b4a-93e4-5f571e91255a).
    • You can also confirm this by navigating to Azure Active Directory > Overview blade and you can see f8cdef31-a31e-4b4a-93e4-5f571e91255a as Tenant ID.
    • In this default tenant, you do not have any directory associated with it which you can confirm by navigating to settings.
    • As this is a standard tenant without any directory associated, you cannot perform actions such as creating new users, groups, enterprise applications, and so on.
    • To perform administrative actions, you must have administrative access to the tenant.User's image
