Change the quantity of a subscription

Applies to:

  • Partner Center
  • Partner Center operated by 21Vianet
  • Partner Center for Microsoft Cloud Germany
  • Partner Center for Microsoft Cloud for US Government

Updates a subscription to increase or decrease the quantity of licenses.

In the Partner Center dashboard, this operation can be performed by first selecting a customer. Then, select the subscription in question that you wish to rename. To finish, change the value in the Quantity field, then select Submit.

Prerequisites

  • Credentials as described in Partner Center authentication. This scenario supports authentication with both standalone App and App+User credentials.
  • A customer ID (customer-tenant-id). If you do not have a customer's ID, you can look up the ID in Partner Center by choosing the customer from the customers list, selecting Account, then saving their Microsoft ID.
  • A subscription ID.

C#

To change the quantity of a customer's subscription, first get the subscription, then change the subscription's Quantity property. Once the change is made, use your IAggregatePartner.Customers collection and call the ById() method. Then call the Subscriptions property, followed by the ById() method. Then, finish by calling the Patch() method.

// IAggregatePartner partnerOperations;
// var customerId;
// var subscriptionId;

//retrieving the subscription, for the purpose of the sample
ResourceCollection<Subscription> customerSubscriptions = partnerOperations.Customers.ById(selectedCustomerId).Subscriptions.Get();
Subscription selectedSubscription = customerSubscriptions.Items.FirstOrDefault(sub => sub.Status == SubscriptionStatus.Active);

//update selected subscription,
selectedSubscription.Quantity++;

var updatedSubscription = partnerOperations.Customers.ById(selectedCustomerId).Subscriptions.ById(selectedSubscription.Id).Patch(selectedSubscription);

Sample: Console test app. Project: PartnerSDK.FeatureSample Class: UpdateSubscription.cs

REST response

If successful, this method returns an HTTP status 200 status code and updated subscription resource properties in the response body.

Response success and error codes

Each response returns an HTTP status code that indicates success or failure and additional debugging information. Use a network trace tool to read the status code, error type, and additional parameters. For the full list, see Error Codes.

When the patch operation takes longer than the expected time, the Partner Center sends an HTTP status 202 status code and a location header that points to where to retrieve the subscription. You can query the subscription periodically to monitor the status and quantity changes.
