Create user accounts for employees who need access to the Partner Center. These tasks must be done by the user management admin, accounts admin or the global admin.
If you are looking for guidance on how to associate professionals’ (MCPs) exams, assessments and or certifications to your account to satisfy the competency requirements, follow the guidance here.
How to associate a user to your organization’s Microsoft Partner Network ID in Partner Center
1. From the Settings icon at the top right of the Partner Center, select User management.
2. Select Add user.
3. Enter the user’s full name and unique email address.
4. Select the user Roles and Permissions you want to assign to the user. Partner Center access is role-based, so you can assign permissions to customize the user's view to show only the features the user needs to complete specific tasks. If users want a role assignment, they can find account admins to contact by going to User management and filtering on account admin.
5. Select Add to create the user account. Confirm the user's details on the next page.
Make a note of the new user's sign-in information displayed on this page. Be sure to copy and send this information to the new user as you will not be able to access it again later.
The user will need to sign into the Partner Center with their username and temporary password. When the user signs into the Partner Center for the first time, they are prompted to change their password.
Assign user roles
To work in the Partner Center, you must have an assigned role. Currently, roles include Azure Active Directory tenant roles, Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) roles, and non-AAD company roles. An individual company can have a need for all of these roles.
For specific information on the roles and what each role can do, see Assign user permissions.
Find your global admin
Sometimes a user might need to have their role changed or a new user may want a specific role assignment.
To find a global admin who can make role changes or assign roles to a new user, from the Settings icon at the top right of the Partner Center, select User management and filter on global admin.
If Add user button is missing, you are most likely managing your user data base from an on-prem Active Directory, hence you should add your users from your On-prem AD and sync them in the AAD, which will make said users appear in Partner Center after the On-prem-AD sync in the AAD. For such situations, the filtering options will also not be available. A useful document in this sense is can be found here.
To find out how you can connect your on-premises directory to Azure AD, see Integrating your on-premises identities with Azure Active Directory.
