There also has been some enhancement in the existing Azure Subscription Transition tool which enables previous Azure offer in CSP subscriptions to transfer between partners while simultaneously transitioning those subscriptions to the new Azure offer (Azure plan). This enhancement has been long requested by partners and we're excited to improve the existing tooling to facilitate the move to the new Azure offer (Azure plan). The tool and process that partners need to take will remain the same as the partner-to-partner new Azure offer plan transfers. Find detailed information in the partner guide.
