Why am I asked to sign into Windows store with a Microsoft account, when I am signed in with a corporate account

I am logging into a Hybrid AD joined computer with my domain credentials (synced to Azure).
I am signed into the Windows store using the same credentials.

Every time I try to get a new app, I am asked to sign in.
Why would this be, as I would expect my Hybrid AD/Azure credentials to be enough to enable syncing between devices, and work as I am already signed in?

Cheers
James

    Hi,
    @James Edmonds
    Known that you just don’t want to sign in Microsoft Store with your own account every time to download applets, meanwhile your PC has joined in AD/Azure, so perhaps it can share the same credentials.
    Actually, to manage volume purchased/subscribed apps from the ‘’Microsoft Store for Business’’,
    Require associate your Microsoft Store for Business account with Intune or SCCM. You should contact the IT to apply this setting.

    You can find detailed description with Microsoft Intune in the following link for reference
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/intune/apps/windows-store-for-business

    Here is the link for reference with detailed usage of SCCM to synchronize Microsoft store for business

    Hope this can help you
