I followed the instructions at

At step Attach the debugger to the App Service, I clicked the Find button, but the Subscription name does not list any subscription I have access too. Any idea why? Please note I'm in a corporate VPN.

    Hi NM,

    Thank you for reaching out to Microsoft Q & A forum.   

    If you're having trouble seeing your Azure subscriptions when trying to attach the Visual Studio debugger to your App Service, please follow these troubleshooting steps: 

    1.Sign in to the Correct Azure Account: Ensure you are logged into the correct Azure account in Visual Studio. You can verify this by navigating to View > Cloud Explorer and checking if your Azure resources are listed. 

    2.Check Network Connectivity: Corporate VPNs can sometimes restrict access to certain services. Try disconnecting from the VPN to see if your Azure subscriptions appear. 

    3.Verify Subscription Permissions: Confirm that your user account has the necessary permissions (at least "Reader" access) for the Azure subscription. You can check this by logging into the Azure Portal and reviewing the "Subscriptions" section. 

    4.Refresh the Subscription List: In the "Attach to Process" dialog in Visual Studio, click the Refresh button next to the Connection Target field after selecting Microsoft Azure App Services. 

    5.Check Azure Service Authentication Settings: Go to Tools > Options > Azure Service Authentication in Visual Studio and verify that the correct account is selected. 

    6.Update Visual Studio: Ensure that your Visual Studio installation is up-to-date, as updates can often resolve connectivity issues. 

    7.Install the Latest Azure SDK: Confirm that you have the latest Azure SDK and tools installed in Visual Studio. You can check this by going to Tools > Get Tools and Features. 

    8.Verify Azure Active Directory Configuration: If your organization uses Azure Active Directory (AAD), ensure that your AAD tenant is properly configured and that your account has the appropriate roles. 

    9.Use Azure CLI or PowerShell: You can use Azure CLI or PowerShell to list your subscriptions and check for accessibility. 

    using Azure CLI: 

    az login
    az account list

    with PowerShell:
