Select Azure Subscription to work with

When you have a larger organisation, you will have several Azure Subscriptions to work against. So here is how you switch.

1. Open Powershell

2. Type in: Add-AzureRmAccount​
(in pop-up enter admin id and password)

3. It will list up the subscription you are connected to when you have authenticated

4. Type in: Get-AzureRmSubscription
(will list out all your subscriptions)

5. Find the Subscription you want to connect to

6. Type in: Select-AzureRmSubscription -SubscriptionId “ENTER THE SUBSCRIPTION ID”

You can choose SubscriptionName too, but I prefere SubscriptionID
