Microsoft 365 Developer Program instant sandbox update

Microsoft 365 Platform team

Microsoft 365 Developer Program members who created an instant sandbox on or after September 30, 2022, may be unable to sign into their subscription with their admin accounts because they have expired. Members with existing instant sandboxes created before September 30, 2022, are not affected.

What can you do if you are unable to sign into your instant sandbox with your admin account?

If you created your instant sandbox on or after September 30, 2022, we have automatically pre-expired   to enable you to set up a new one. Please go to your Microsoft 365 Developer Program dashboard, sign in with your Developer Program account, and choose Set up subscription to get your new instant sandbox. After you set up your new subscription, please sign in with your admin account within 14 days.

Does the subscription also include a subscription to Azure?

The Microsoft 365 Developer Program subscription does not include a subscription to Azure. Commercial transactions, such as purchasing additional paid services, are not supported. The subscription is only for developing and testing your solutions. To receive free access to Azure services, you can create a free Azure account.

    Not sure if this is the right place to ask the question.

    I would like to use tasks instead of email for part of our system.
    I know how to create a task with MS Graph but what I am looking for is a way to run an azure function whenever a user is completing the task I sent.

    Is there something I can listen to in Graph or Azure and fire the azure function with parameters from the task (user, job etc…)
    Any idea?

    Thank you.
