  1. Hi Adam, the Microsoft Azure Government – Indirect EA Partner Onboarding Guide link does not work, can you provide an updated link?
    We have a successful solution in the Azure Marketplace and are trying to understand how we make it available in the Azure Government Cloud

    Hi Lance,

    Thanks for reaching out on this. I have updated the link to the Microsoft Azure Government – Indirect EA Partner Onboarding Guide.

    Regarding your question about Marketplace in Azure Government, currently Marketplace is not available. With that said, this post regarding Running Azure Marketplace solutions in Azure Government (https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/azuregov/2016/07/08/running-azure-marketplace-solutions-in-azure-government/) may be of assistance.
