Error When Alias is Not Billable

Updated by Ben Swoboda on Feb 20, 2017

Introduction

CenturyLink Cloud does not currently sell Azure through Cloud Application Manager to the following types of accounts:

  • Resellers
  • Internal accounts
  • Demo accounts
  • Sub-accounts of those categories listed above

Non-Billable Accounts

The following error will appear if the CenturyLink Cloud account alias you provide is a reseller, internal, demo or sub-account, and is therefore designated "not billable."

Cloud Application Manager Error: Account Not Billable

Here's how you might arrive at this error message. After you log into Cloud Application Manager, click the Provider tab on the top toolbar.

Cloud Application Manager Create New Provider

Then click New Provider on the left navigation bar.

Select Azure Resource Manager to build a customer account in the current Microsoft Azure. Note: this is the new Azure, not the classic Azure. The dialog box that appears will enable you to create a new Azure customer account. Add a name for the account and select the Create a new Azure customer account option.

Cloud Application Manager New Provider Details

Click Connect a CenturyLink Cloud Account and enter your CLC account admin credentials. This ties Azure directly into the CenturyLink Cloud billing service.
