Let your Cloud Solution Provider manage your Azure Stack Hub subscription

If you use Azure Stack Hub with a Cloud Solution Provider (CSP), you might choose to manage your own subscription to access resources in Azure and in Azure Stack Hub. You can also let the provider manage your subscription for you. This article shows you how to:

  • Give your service provider access to your subscription.
  • Make sure the service provider can manage your service.

Note

If the CSP is not managing your account, and you skip the following steps, the CSP cannot manage your Azure Stack Hub subscription for you.

Manage your subscription with a CSP

Add the CSP as user to your subscription.

  1. Add your CSP as a guest user with the user role to your tenant directory. For help with adding a user, see Add new users to Azure Active Directory.

  2. The CSP creates the local Azure Stack Hub subscription for you. You are ready to start using Azure Stack Hub.

  3. Your CSP should create a resource in your subscription to verify that they can also manage your resources. For example, they can Create a Windows virtual machine with the Azure Stack Hub portal.
