The previous Azure SDK 2.7 release added support in Visual Studio 2015 for accounts accessing Azure via Role Based Access Control, Cloud Solution Providers, DreamSpark and other account and subscription types. With the Azure SDK 2.7.1 these accounts and subscriptions are now supported in Visual Studio 2013 as well.
