Using the same Directory for Office 365 & Azure and assigning a MSDN subscription

I'm not sure how to explain this in a simple way without causing confusion, but here goes:

We currently have an Office 365 account which is synced with on Premise AD. I want to give some users in this directory access to Azure without creating a second directory, The developers need to access information in AD for their application. We don't have a license for Azure; only an MSDN subscription.

What is the correct process to setup a new Azure account which is in the same directory as our Office 365 account and also assign an MSDN subscription?

Create your Azure account via the MSDN subscription, and you can later add the O365 Azure AD into it.

so to clarify - there is no way to have one Azure AD shared between Office 365 & Azure? You have to add the Office 365 AD as a secondary directory in Azure.

the last time when I added the Office 365 AD to our Bizspark Azure subscription like you said, the users in the other directory couldn't see the accounts. Shortly after that the subscription expired so I didn't get to investigate further.

I can create users from the Azure portal directly in my O365 tenant if that's what you mean.

what I mean is - in Azure you will have 2 directories. I don't see the value in having 2. I only need one. I assume that is not possible?

I'm getting an error adding the directory using the steps from your other post. Did you ever come across this?

Tried again today and the error isn't happening. Must of been an issue with Azure that day!
