"Login with ad credentials (preview)" option not available on "Management" tab under sub-section "Azure Active Directory" while creating a new azure VM

I want to create a new azure VM (windows server 2019 datacenter) with enabling the preview feature "Login with ad credentials (preview)" on "Management" tab under sub-section "Azure Active Directory". I don't see this option available for my azure account/subscription.

see the right portion of the image2831-image.png

    @Anonymous can you please provide the other settings that you've configured for your azure vm?

    Per the docs there are other requirements: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/devices/howto-vm-sign-in-azure-ad-windows#requirements

    In addition to that, as it's a preview feature it could be that the feature has not been rolled out to your region yet or the region you are trying to deploy.

    If you would like more support and for this feature to be rolled out into production more quickly, please submit your feedback against the Azure VM feedback forums here : https://feedback.azure.com/forums/216843-virtual-machines

    And if there's enough communal support for this feature, the product team will look into further support into this feature more quickly.

    At the portal I also faced the same issue in my free trial, I used azure CLI

    az vm extension set \
    --publisher Microsoft.Azure.ActiveDirectory.LinuxSSH \
    --name AADLoginForLinux \
    --resource-group myResourceGroup \
    --vm-name myVM

    command to install the Azure Active Directory login VM extension which basically enables the AAD login option for your VM.
