Partner Transformation Updates

Communication and awareness of all upcoming changes for Partners.


Product licenses/internal use licenses benefits Update

Dear Partners

The Microsoft partner network offers a portfolio of resources that can help every partner differentiate its business and solution for success and growth. Partners with a competency or subscription are eligible for technical, marketing, and selling opportunities and benefits.

The internal use rights benefit lets a partner’s technical, marketing, and sales teams get hands-on with and learn about the latest Microsoft products and technologies.

Partners with competencies will receive Microsoft 365 E3 product licenses in their core package of benefits, and partners with the Cloud Productivity competency, Security competency, and Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions competency (O365 services option) will receive incremental Microsoft 365 licenses.

MPN admins and Global admins will see these product licenses in Partner Center as part of the benefits included with their competency. Information about reviewing and activating these benefits is at Azure and cloud products benefits area in Partner Center.

Find your benefits - Partner Center | Microsoft Docs

These licenses replace the standalone licenses in the competency core package of benefits for Office 365, Enterprise Mobility + Security, Microsoft Intune, and Windows 10, and these standalone licenses will be removed from the core package in April 2021.

Hi Abansal,

We are one of the learning partners.

Have one doubt, about using the azure benefits. As per your document, Azure & cloud credits, learning partners can utilize it for our Azure trainings. Can we use it ((IUR's) Azure credits).


As you know that all trainings are virtual due to covid. So, can we assign it to our panel trainer and use the benefits for his Azure trainings. Under RDP category, Internally the participant can have VM's access through RDP and in that the client can have trainings within the VM's.

Need your clarification on this. 


Thanks and regards

Hi Abhinav,


So as a Cloud Productivity competency Partner, we will not have access to the Phone System anymore? That is a very important IUR for a Cloud Productivity Partner.
