Microsoft Azure Dev Tools

The following new features apply compared to the predecessor program Imagine:

  • There are no more restrictions regarding the authorized users: All university members can use the program within the framework of the license guidelines for teaching and study.
  • Authentication is no longer carried out with the university ID but in two stages using a Microsoft ID and the university e-mail address.
  • In addition to the software download, you can also use various Microsoft cloud services in the new portal.

To register for the new portal for the first time, proceed as follows:

  1. Open the page https://azureforeducation.microsoft.com/devtools and select Sign In.
  2. Log in with your Microsoft ID (if you don't have one yet, you can create one). Do not use the university ID!)
  3. If you are asked whether it is a personal account or a business or school account, choose Personal Account.
  4.  After successfully logging in with the Microsoft ID, you will be asked to identify yourself as a university member using your university e-mail address. You will then receive an e-mail with a link to activate the portal.

Tip: To access the software download at any time, set a favorite in the portal as follows:

  1. Select in the left menu of the portal: All services.
  2.  Enter Education in the search field
  3.  Activate the Favorites (click on the asterisk), then the entry Education will appear permanently in the left menu.
