I faced this error while Azure Web App Deployment starts in after Continuous Integration. Here's the detailed information you see in the error:

-Credential parameter can only be used with Organization ID credentials. For more information, please refer to for more information about the difference between an organizational account and a Microsoft account. There was an error with the Azure credentials used for deployment.

If you face this issue, here's quick way:

Step 1

Edit existing build definition and select "Azure Web App Deployment" and then click on "Manage".

Now you will be redirect on new tab.

Step 2

On new tab click on "Update service configuration" and this will open a dialog box where you need to select "Certificate Based" option and then fill up the details. You can click on "Publish settings file" to download, this file will have everything you need to fill here.

Now click on "ok" button to save changes and then fire another build and this will work now.

Hope this helps.
