Azure Partner Admin Link Preview

Introducing the Partner Admin Link Preview
 
To further empower the partners doing important work on behalf of other companies, Microsoft is proud to announce the preview availability of the Azure Partner Admin Link. Microsoft Partners are now able to associate a Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) ID with the credentials used to manage resources within a customer's environment. By linking the partner and customer at the account level - rather than subscription or tenant - reporting and insights can be enhanced for greater precision based on actions taken on the resource instance.

What about O365 Admins? can we expect something similar?

Re: Azure Partner Admin Link Preview

Hi Dean, this is an Azure specific program right now. My understanding is that the primary mechanism for managed services within Office 365 is CSP, which allows act-on-behalf permissions. I'd love your feedback on where there are improvement opportunities, though!
