How to leave Azure subscription(s) associated to your Azure account

When you have access to multiple Azure subscriptions from (former) customers for example, you may want to remove them when you don’t need access any more. In this blogpost I describe how to get rid of them without contacting their administrators.

It is possible to self-leave an Azure AD tenant.

Here’s the steps:

  • Log into the Access Panel at
    In the upper-right corner, select your name.
    Make sure to leave the user experience option to show the Gear icon!
  • Next to Organizations, select the settings icon (gear).

    If you can’t see the settings icon (gear), widen the browser screen. The Access Panel user interface is a reactive interface that adepts to the width of the screen. If the screen is too narrow, a hamburger menu will be shown. In this menu, the settings icon (gear) is not (yet) present.
  • Under Organizations, find the organization that you want to leave, and select Leave organization.
    If you’re not already signed in to the organization that you want to leave, select your name in the upper-right corner, and click the organization you want to leave or follow the Sign in to leave organization link and repeat the last two steps.
  • When asked to confirm, select Leave.
Now choose to leave the specific organisation.
Are you sure you wish to leave this specific organisation?
Leaving the orgnisation was succesful!

You receive an email with the confirmation.
