We may have an Azure account and also an Azure DevOps account created at different times. If both the accounts are created using the same Microsoft account (with same email address) then the authentication and authorization is seamless. In this article, I am going to show you how we can create a service connection to Azure from Azure DevOps even if you have used different Microsoft accounts to create Azure and Azure DevOps accounts.
I am putting a scenario in front of you.
I have an Azure DevOps account named SubodhS66, created using my email address subodhs66[at]hotmail.com. I do not have an Azure account against this account.
My Azure account and subscription named SS-VSTS is against the email address subodhsohoni[at]hotmail.com. I have a Web App Service (PaaS) resource created under this account. The name of that app service is DemoWebApp. It uses the Azure Resource Manager model. The code for this app service is in a git repository in a Team Project named “SSGS EMS” on my Azure DevOps account.
