This is definitely coming!
I was hoping this was coming this summer - but I've heard lately that this has been delayed until later this year (late fall or early winter time-frame) as the real potential targeted time-frame. Any hints from MSFT?
Also - what do you think about getting rid of the Azure EA portal and simplifying everything to just the Azure portal? That could be an idea --- I've seen many customers who forget about the Azure EA portal.
The current Azure EA type of content could be made available in the Azure portal in say a special section or link that would be accessible for Azure EA admins. Just a thought.
This issue probably pertains to Pay-as-you-Go credit card Azure Subscriptions. Most of our corporate customers doing just a few thousand a year to over a million a year in Azure are able to provide some level of separation between billing and technical administration of Azure because they are running Azure against an EA or SCE agreement and so they use the Azure EA and Azure portals. Sounds like they need to provide something similar for MS Direct Pay-as-you-Go subscriptions to provide option to separate billing user and technical account admin.
In a follow-up note - I'd like to see MSFT consolidate the Azure EA portal to just the Azure portal and put the Azure EA stuff into a separate tab or section in the Azure portal where that information would be available for Azure EA admins.
