  2. Select the Customers link in the navigation pane.
  3. Select the customer tenant that you want to perform administrative tasks for.
  4. Select Service Management.
  5. Under the Administer Services heading, select Dynamics 365 Business Central.

You can also get to the administration center by navigating directly to the URL of a tenant's instance. This is done with the following URL, if you replace [TENANT_ID] with the tenant ID of the tenant.[TENANT_ID]/admin
