The following are a few tips for managing your Azure subscription. Start by navigating to the Subscription blade and then click on a Subscription you wish to manage:

From here you have a clear overview of your Subscription ID and the current spending with a breakdown by resource.

Renaming your subscription

To rename your Subscription, in my case I want to change it from “BizSpark-$70” to “MSDN-Professional-$70” as that is a new MSDN subscription I purchased and changing the name properly reflects that subscription and the Azure credits associated with it.

To rename the Subscription, click on the Subscription name:

You can now enter in a new Subscription name and when you’re done click on the Save button. The subscription name change can take up to 10 minutes to be reflected on the Azure portal.

After the subscription has successfully been renamed, you’ll receive an alert:

Configuring email invoices

The Azure portal recently allowed you to opt in and configure email invoices. This means instead of receiving an email each month that your invoice is ready which required you to login to the Azure portal, now you can have the invoice emailed to you instead, which is awesome!

If you haven’t already setup email invoices, from the Azure Subscription blade, click on Invoices:

From the Invoices blade, you can now click on the Invoices button and then from here you can opt-in and configure it:

If you already opted in, you can review your current configuration and also configure the list of recipients (maybe you want the invoice sent to your accounting department also). When done, click the Done button at the bottom:

Enjoy!
