How do I cancel an Azure subscription?

Phlip Pretorius 0 Reputation points

I have an Azure subscription but the company for which I have created the subscription will not pay for the subscription.

I pay for it out my own pocket.

I need to cancel the subscription. How do I go about this process?

    Hello Phlip Pretorius,

    Thanks for your question.

    To cancel the subscription please follow the steps here:

    1. In the Azure portal, go to "Cost Management + Billing."
    2. In the left menu, select "Subscriptions" and choose the subscription you want to cancel.
    3. At the top of the subscription page, select "Cancel."
    4. Select a reason for cancellation and, if applicable, turn off auto-renew for any support plans.
    5. If there are running resources, turn them off. Then select "Cancel subscription" to finalize.

    Pls note you require Owner RBAC on subscription scope to perform this action.
