Transition 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

Upgrades a customer's subscription to a specified target subscription.

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.
  • Two subscription IDs, one for the initial subscription and one for the target subscription.

C#

To upgrade a customer's subscription, first get that's customer's subscription. Then, obtain a list of upgrades for that subscription by calling the Upgrades property followed by the Get() or GetAsync() methods. Choose a target upgrade from that list of upgrades, and then call the Upgrades property of the initial subscription, followed by the Create() method.

// IAggregatePartner partnerOperations;
// string selectedCustomerId;
// string subscriptionIdForUpgrade;
// Upgrade targetOffer; 

UpgradeResult upgradeResult = partnerOperations.Customers.ById(selectedCustomerId).Subscriptions.ById(subscriptionIdForUpgrade).Upgrades.Create(targetOffer);

Sample: Console test app. Project: PartnerSDK.FeatureSamples Class: UpgradeSubscription.cs
