Azure Service Principal Different Tenant

hi all,
I’m following the instructions for connecting Azure accounts with and get an error for the service principal creation:

$ az ad sp create --id d4abcc44-2c40-40bd-9bba-986df591c28f
When using this permission, the backing application of the service principal being created must in the local tenant

Could you please provide guidance for installation if the tenant is different?

Hi Martin,

This means that you don’t have sufficient permissions to create the service principal. Could you reach out to your Azure administrator and ask them to create the service principal. If this is not possible for you then let us know and we will investigate if there are other solutions.
