    This is a really big blocker for SAAS applications with no simple workaround. According to this stackexchange https://serverfault.com/questions/104160/wildcard-ssl-certificate-for-second-level-subdomain it is actually working on modern browsers.

    Any update on an ETA? Could this be months or years?

    Folks,

    Thanks for the questions and suggestions. And apologies for not sharing any update on this thread for so long. We’ve been working on this problem and have announced changes on our official team blog (see here: https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2016/09/15/cleaning-up-the-azure-ad-and-microsoft-account-overlap/).

    First, we are acutely aware of the UX pain this is causing and we are sorry for this. We are trying to undo a decade and a half of systems divergence. There are literally hundreds of different engineering teams across Microsoft involved in this effort. So this is taking time.

    Second, we can’t easily “merge” two accounts, or allow IT to “take over” personal Microsoft accounts. There are two main hurdles: (1) The terms of service are fundamentally different for the two account types and (2) they are based on different technologies with different stacks (different identifiers, SDKs, token formats, etc.). We’re working to converge the two stacks but again this…

    Quick update,

    We have been considering all of the risks and investigating the steps required to ensure we implement this feature with high positive impact and low to no negative impact.

    After this investigation we have decided we will enable Pay-As-You-Go customers the option to configure a spending limit on a Pay-As-You-Go subscription, with appropriate safeguards and measures to prevent both service abuse and production service failure.

    We have not yet finished determining the details of what this feature will look like, nor do we have a timeline for release, but we have heard your voices and have added this feature to our backlog.

    Thanks for your continued feedback,

    -Adam (Azure Billing Team)

    Yeah, please copy paste this somewhere in your codebase:

    if ( CurrentBill >= Account.SpendingLimit )
    {
    Account.Suspend(); Account.SendNotificationMail()
    }

    The lack of this feature is absolutely ridiculous. Usually I'm a big Microsoft and Azure fan, but this is completely unsellable. I can't get rid of the feeling that this was a deliberate trap to make some extra money by companies that are paying less attention.
