View your Azure Active Directory roles in Microsoft 365 Lighthouse

This article provides instructions for how to view your Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) roles across the different customer tenants that your organization manages. Your role determines which actions you can perform in Lighthouse.

Before you begin

You must have access to a partner tenant that has onboarded to the Microsoft 365 Lighthouse service.

View your roles

  1. In the left navigation pane in Lighthouse, select Tenants.

  2. From the tenant list, select any tenant name to open the tenant's Overview page.

  3. Next to Roles, select the link indicating the number of roles you hold in the tenant. The Roles page opens.

    If you hold one or more roles in a customer tenant, you'll see a green checkmark in the Enabled column for that tenant, along with the number of roles you hold. If you don't hold any roles in a tenant, you'll see a red X.

  4. For customer tenants with a green checkmark next to them, expand the tenant to see the list of roles you hold in that tenant. For more information about Azure AD roles and the permissions they grant, see Azure AD built-in roles.

    The Roles page also shows any custom tags that have been applied to your tenants. You can filter the data on the page by assigned roles or tags.

Next steps

If you don't have permission to perform an action that you need to perform in Lighthouse, reach out to an admin in your partner tenant who can assign you the appropriate role for the action you're trying to perform.
