Microsoft Azure Application Transfer

Quinton 21 Reputation points

Is there a simple way for me to transfer a Storage Account From Tenant A to Tenant B?

Is there a simple way to do the same but with App Services and Virtual Machines?

    Hi @Quinton • Thank you for reaching out.

    The Azure resources, such as Storage Account, App Services, and Virtual Machines are created within Azure subscription. A tenant represents an Azure Active Directory instance, which doesn't contain any resources but the identity objects like users, groups, servicePrincipals etc. A subscription is linked to a tenant so that the identities in that tenant get access to the resources within that subscription.

    Important: A subscription can only be linked to one tenant but a tenant can have multiple subscriptions linked to it.

    So, based on your setup, you can choose one of the below options. Unfortunately, there is no short/simple way available as of now.

    1. If you have only one subscription, follow Transfer an Azure subscription to a different Azure AD directory document to transfer the subscription from TenantA to TenantB. In this case all the resources will be moved to TenantB along with the subscription.
    2. If you have two subscriptions, where subscription1 is linked to TenantA and Subscription2 is linked to TenantB, you need to transfer the Subscription1 to TenantB. Once both the subscriptions are linked to TenantB, you can transfer required Storage Account, App Services, and Virtual Machines to subscription2. Once the transfer is complete, you need to move the Subscription1 back to TenantA.
