Azure Active Directory


Cannot Sign up Microsoft Account with work email


Hi,
My company is using the Microsoft Azure AD service and the email work is connected to that service. And currently, my company want to utilize Microsoft translation API text and Microsoft Translation HUB. However, when trying to register Microsoft account using
our work email, there is an error, It says :
You can't sign up here with a work or school email address. Use a personal email, such as Gmail or Yahoo!, or get a new Outlook email.
I got an answer from Microsoft like this :
Starting today, we’re blocking the ability to create a new personal Microsoft account using a work/school email address, when the email domain is configured in Azure AD.
What does this mean? If your organization uses Office 365 or other business services from Microsoft that rely on Azure AD, and if you’ve added a domain name to your Azure AD tenant, users will no longer be able to create a new personal Microsoft account
using an email address in your domain.
This sign-up block has been running in limited Preview for a hand full of organizations and is now active for all domains names that are configured (DNS-verified) in Azure AD. No action is necessary to enable the block.
However, I found this statement:
Short term exceptions
Unfortunately, there’s still a small number of Microsoft business services that don’t support Azure AD. The good news is that we’re making good progress. For example, Windows Dev Center finished their integration last winter and now supports both personal
Microsoft accounts and Azure AD accounts. We’re working with other teams such as MSDN and Brand Central to help them add support for Azure AD.
Based on feedback we received during the preview, we will not block the ability to use a work email address to sign up for these business services. This is a short-term compromise that’s consistent with our main goal of preventing accidental use of
work/school email address to sign up for personal Microsoft account.
The sentence I bold, does it mean we can still use the same work email address for Azure and Microsoft account?
Please let me know if there is a possibility for this situation? If it can't be done, what is the best practice for this issue?
Regards,
Erwin
This only impacts the ability to create new Microsoft accounts and does not impact existing accounts. There is a lot of details in this blog post -
