Change Azure AD tenant associated with your new Azure subscription

I believe as you know, all Azure subscriptions are associated into an Azure Active Directory tenant and have one or more subscription owners like below. In addition that, we can't list subscriptions across Azure Active Directory tenants. f:id:waritohutsu:20190526035811p:plain
This should be the cause why you can't find new Azure subscriptions even you have already enabled Global subscription filter.

New Azure subscriptions should be associated into an Azure Active Directory tenant which has your School or Work Account. It depends situations if your account is Microsoft Account. Refer to an article below if you are unfamiliar with School or Work Account and Microsoft Account.
docs.microsoft.com

Go to the new Azure subscription and choose "Change directory" like below.

Note you need to contact Azure Active Directory tenant administrator not EA Portal administrator if you can't move the subscription into proper Azure Active Directory tenant.
