    We’ll send you updates on this idea

    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…

    Craig Humphrey commented  · 

    Yeah, starting to hit this with more frequency.

    We use SPOnline as an Extranet and have a lot of corporate clients using Microsoft Accounts on their business email address.
    Now they're starting to roll out O365 and so they're switching to AzureAD, on the same email address.

    Works great until they try to get into our SPOnline tenant and it tells them they don't exist in our directory...

    Even if you can't merge the accounts, it would be great, from either an AzureAD or SPOnline Admin perspective, to have some mechanism to replace an existing MSA account guest user, with their new O365 account - given they're using the same email address.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are currently in public preview of blob storage lifecycle management. The feature set offers a rich, rule-based policy engine which you can use to transition your data to the best access tier and to expire data at the end of its lifecycle. This framework can be used to match and tier blobs based on prefix to enable batch archiving of an account, containers, or even virtual directories. Having talked to a number of customers, we concluded that this solution addresses many scenarios where the need for account and container level archiving exists. See our post on the Azure Blog to get started: https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/azure-blob-storage-lifecycle-management-public-preview/preview/.

    For any further questions, or to discuss your specific scenario, send us an email at DLMFeedback@microsoft.com.

    +1 to also being able to set host/cold/archive tier at the Share level.

    Just added my vote to this.

    An additional comment: I'd like to be able to auto-scale up/down, similar to the in/out, primarily around situations like:
    - I know the pattern of my users and it's more cost effective to run a tiny system (with the potential to scale out [or up], if I get caught out) during off-peak times.
    - I know I'm about to get an increased base-level load (just onboarded a new client with 100's/1000's users, or new version of the software is slower...), so my existing (single server) performance level is too low. But I don't want to interrupt my existing (24/7) users...
    - I have background tasks (web jobs), that need more performance (e.g. big overnight processing), where scale-out doesn't help.

    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)

    +1 for Enterprise Agreement based Azure Subscriptions.

    And for some way to track/alert cost against a specific user.
    E.g. user creates huge VM and leaves it turned on, racking up a huge bill.

    We’ve made several improvements in this area to support users who don’t have O365 or who are using email addresses that differ from their O365 login information (such as supporting proxy addresses, direct federation support, and email one-time passcodes), but we know there’s more work to do in this space. Please let us know what other scenarios are causing you and your guests the most pain so we can use that information to triage and prioritize future investments.

    This seems to have been fixed (yay!) but now users often get "<emailaddres>#ext#@<tenant>.onmicrosoft.com does not have permissions to access this resource.

    Waiting a few minutes usually helps, though often you need to close your browser...
