Administrators assign licenses to users to grant them permissions for certain applications. Azure Active Directory users can't be enabled for Microsoft Dynamics 365 - Gamification unless they have a Dynamics 365 (online) license assigned. The first user to have a KPI Manager security role assigned by a system admin in Dynamics 365 (online) is required to set up the connection between Gamification and Dynamics 365 (online). The user successfully activating Gamification becomes the first Commissioner in Gamification. Be sure that you don't delete this user before assigning Commissioner permissions to other users.
