This topic provides online help content for cloud services, such as Windows Intune and Office 365, which rely on Windows Azure Active Directory for identity and directory services.

When you subscribe to a Microsoft cloud service, you are given administrator permissions. You can then assign administrator permissions to other users in your company. However, if you want someone else to administer the service, you can delegate this role to a Microsoft partner. When you authorize a partner to take on this role, the partner is referred to as a delegated administrator.

If are not currently working with a partner, you can find one on the Microsoft Pinpoint website.

This process must be initiated by your Microsoft partner. The partner sends you an email message asking you if you want to give them permissions to act as a delegated administrator.

  1. Read the partner's terms in the email message.

  2. To authorize the agreement, click the link to take you to an authorization page.

  1. On the Admin page, in the left pane, under Support, click Overview.

  2. On the Support overview page, under Delegated administrators, click Manage your delegated administrators.

    Your delegated administrator is listed on the Delegated administrators page. If you do not have a delegated administrator, the list is blank.

When you remove a delegated administrator, you remove the partner’s permissions to access and modify your service. You can remove the delegated partner at any time.

  1. On the Admin page, in the left pane, under Support, click Overview.

  2. On the Support overview page, under Delegated administrators, click Manage your delegated administrators.

  3. On the Delegated administrators page, select the partner that you want to remove.

  4. Click Remove delegated administrator.
