Please refer to this video for visual guideline:




  • Partial upgrades are supported through MS Partner Center only for now.
  • To ensure your upgrade order is correctly processed by the vendor, configure quantity and other fields to match your current subscription amount.
  • Prices displayed during configuration are regular purchase prices, even if the actual difference due to prepayment or other conditions is lower.


Rename on upgrade

After upgrading subscription to another offer, the name of the subscription is updated automatically to match the new offer. This should emphasize successful renewal on the UI and in the reports, as well as recognize corresponding invoice lines with the now-matching name from the vendor.
