Subscription offer, Access to Azure Active Directory, is being deprecated

Milan 25 Reputation points

I've got an email from Microsoft:

Your subscription offer, Access to Azure Active Directory, will be disabled on May 16, 2024 You’re receiving this email because you’re an account administrator of the subscription of offer type, Access to Azure Active Directory. Access to Azure Active Directory subscriptions were subscriptions that were used to connect to the Azure portal. These subscriptions aren’t required anymore because the new Azure Portal uses your Azure Active Directory access (also known as Microsoft Entra ID), so we’re deprecating these subscriptions. As a part of this deprecation, you can either cancel your subscription now or it will be disabled on May 16, 2024 and will be deleted on July 15, 2024.If you currently have active resources in your Access to Azure Active Directory subscription, please upgrade to a new pay-as-you-go subscription by submitting a support ticket below.

Will this affect me and my tenant? I mean if this subscription cancels, this won't delete my users and their mailboxes? Still confused with this...

    Hi, Milan Panic I want to help you here to clear up the confusion.

    To summarize your question:

    You got this Message via Email from Microsoft and it tells you that the subscription with the Name "Access to Azure Active Directory" will be retired. Now you are confused if your existing resources in other subscriptions will be deleted as well.

    I can tell you that you don't need to have worries here, the "Access to Azure Active Directory" subscription is a legacy subscription that Microsoft needs in the past to Access AzureAD. Today this subscription is no longer needed and does nothing anymore. When you want to delete the subscription earlier you can only do that by creating a support ticket. I recommend waiting for the retirement date when the subscription will be automatically deleted.

    I hope I could help you to solve the question.
