Steps for Visual Studio (MSDN) subscribers
In order to gain access to the new My Visual Studio portal it is necessary for you to login using your Microsoft account.
- Please go to the My.VisualStudio.com homepage at: https://my.visualstudio.com
- Sign in with the same Microsoft Account (aka Live ID) as used on the legacy MSDN.microsoft.com portal. Note: This may not be the same as used for accessing the Partner Membership Center or the contact email address from your individual profile.
- If the sign in email domain exists within Azure Active Directory (AAD), you will get the option to leverage it as a Work/School Account = AAD account or Personal account = Microsoft account. You need to select the Personal Account option since the email was being used as a Microsoft account to access the Legacy portal (https://msdn.microsoft.com) previously.
This will bring you to the Visual Studio Subscriptions portal where you can see your subscription level in the top right corner, below the navigation ribbon.
Note: Using the Contact Microsoft Support button requires you to login into the MPN site using a valid Microsoft Partner Network login. If you do not have a valid Microsoft Partner Network login or are having problems logging in to MPN, you can get more information or assistance from the MPN Support site.
