A user interface limitation prevents the subscription picker from displaying more than 50 subscriptions. If your user account has access to more than 50 subscriptions and the target subscription you want to change the billing for isn't visible, you can follow either of the following two workarounds:

Remove your subscription

  1. Sign in to your organization, choose gear icon Organization settings > Billing, and then Change billing, following steps 1 through 4 provided in the Change the subscription section.

  2. Choose Remove billing, and then choose Save.

Your subscription gets removed from billing for your organization.


  • When you remove the billing subscription from your organization, any paid quantities of Basic, Azure Artifacts users, Azure Test Plans users, Microsoft-hosted CI/CD, and self-hosted CI/CD go back to the free tier of service immediately.
  • If you delete your organization resource in the Azure Portal, do so after you change the billing subscription in Azure DevOps and not before, to avoid your organization reverting to the free tier of service.
