Microsoft is pushing Azure and I, as many other developers, get access to it through different programs. Some of them are better than others, some expire, etc. So I had a need to transfer all of my used Azure services and data from one subscription to another.
I mentally approached this as some sort of IT admin task and was planning migration strategies but then it hit me that it could be just a switch on the Microsoft’s side specifying which subscription “owns” particular services. This turned to be true but wasn’t easy to discover so I decided to document the process for future reference.
Now you just submit the form and wait. A “Support Professional” will be assigned to your request and will handle everything from there. All in all it took less than 2 days (including some questions I had) to completely move my web roles, storage accounts and SQL Azure databases without any noticeable downtime. Much easier than I anticipated.
