I want to build Apps for SharePoint 2013. The model that makes the most sense for me are Auto hosted apps.

I already have an Office 365 SharePoint online account. But I absolutely have no Idea which Azure account I need. (there are so many options)

So my question is: which azure account do I need to develop auto hosted Apps in Sharepoint online?

  • Can you explain your question some more. Just activate an Azure account on windowsazure.com/en-us/pricing/free-trial and make sure you are using your Office 365 admin credentials to create your Azure account. Feb 7, 2014 at 12:30
  • Ok, so i need my Office 365 admin credentials to log in to azure. That is the ways these two systems get connected?

You need to create an account in Azure using your Office 365 credentials. When you use these credentials an Azure AD connected to your Office 365 instance will be automatically created.
