This page provides detailed steps to troubleshoot issues that might occur when setting up your Microsoft Defender ATP service.

If you receive an error message, Microsoft Defender Security Center will provide a detailed explanation on what the issue is and relevant links will be supplied.

No subscriptions found

If while accessing Microsoft Defender Security Center you get a No subscriptions found message, it means the Azure Active Directory (AAD) used to login the user to the portal, does not have a Microsoft Defender ATP license.

Potential reasons:

  • The Windows E5 and Office E5 licenses are separate licenses.
  • The license was purchased but not provisioned to this AAD instance.
    • It could be a license provisioning issue.
    • It could be you inadvertently provisioned the license to a different Microsoft AAD than the one used for authentication into the service.

For both cases you should contact Microsoft support at General Microsoft Defender ATP Support or Volume license support.
