Deleting a Directory instance

John Chapman 1 Reputation point

I was recently following the steps provided in the following Lab using a personal Azure/Outlook account rather than my corporate/partner account to isolate from a production environment:

During the lab, we created a new Directory named "Identity Lab" under our Default Directory and switched to the "Identity Lab" to set up Azure AD Sync and various workloads.

Once the lab was completed, I deleted all Resources/Resource Groups but am not able to delete the "Identity Lab" - it appears to be completely dissociated other than with an External account (flagged as Owner; the account from my Default Directory). However, I see no way to delete this.

    anonymous user Not sure if I understood your question correctly, but seems you might be looking for way to delete a directory and you do not seem to find anyway. A screenshot would help as well to understand if you are getting any error or just to see your scenario.

    If the above is correct, you might see this link which talks about way to delete your directory from Azure management portal after validating certain things.

    Let us know if you have any questions.
