Services Included with Microsoft 365 E5 Developer Subscriptions

What is currently included when you sign up for a Microsoft 365 E5 developer subscription?

By Sam Erde

Welcome back! Here’s a quick hit that falls into the “make notes and share them” category.

During the first quarter of 2024, Microsoft announced some unfortunate changes to the developer program. There have been many posts about how far fewer people will have access to this amazing learning and developing resource. I won’t dive into that again in this post. For now, I wanted to create an easy reference for one other question that often comes up: “if it’s E5, but not all services are actually included, which ones are?” (Spoiler: Microsoft Defender for Endpoint is still excluded.) The announcement states:

Updated service plans. The Microsoft 365 developer subscription now includes service plans that were previously missing. For a complete list of the service plans that are included, see Product names and service plan identifiers for licensing.

If you’ve ever visited that page, you know how hard it is to read! This seems like a great opportunity for a GitHub action to scrape and remodel the table. For now, here’s a quick copy/paste of the friendly names for all service plans included with the DEVELOPERPACK_E5 SKU.
