Hi, Can anyone help explain in easy to understand terms what is required on the EA Azure Portal - the terms such as Subscription and Account seem to have different meanings to the normal licnesing terms used by Microsoft.  I have searched Google but come up with nothing that means anything.

Thanks

E.

Hi David, thank you for the links, however I am still confused about what an "Account" constitutes - according to the guide it is an administrator : "To save some confusion, this part is not a generic account (like what a department and subscription is), but more so an individual account for a person, who will ultimately become the Azure Account Administrator. The AA can manage and setup Azure subscriptions, at which point will also become – by default – the Service Administrator for the subscription as well at the time of subscription creation."
If that is the case how does the Dev/test option work?  If I only have my account as administrator in there, how does Azure get the Dev/Test user information.   In MSDN I am an administrator, and I assign user rights and the users log in and all is good - with this model the rights seem to be added in the EA and the Azure portal and additionally in the Visual Studio Portal - or am I getting this wrong?  The end result I require is an EA agreement that allows my Dev Users access and use of TFS and Build services.   Any ideas gratefully received.

Thank you for your comments and assistance David - it partially answered my question but not to a successful setup for my Devs - Microsoft seem to have made this setup as difficult as possible - I have had to access 6 different portals and it is difficult to keep track.  I will ask a different question to see if it gets me further.
