Connect a Microsoft account

To use Azure Sphere, you must have a Microsoft account. To find out whether you have one, or to create a new account, see One account for all things Microsoft.

If you are setting up Azure Sphere for the first time you can register yourself as a new user:

  1. Open a command-line interface using PowerShell, Windows command prompt, or Linux command shell.

  2. Enter the following command, replacing <email-address> with your Microsoft account:

    azsphere register-user --new-user <email-address>
    

    For example:

    azsphere register-user --new-user myname@live.com
    

You can use this email address to sign in explicitly to Azure Sphere Security Services using azsphere login.
