To become a global admin for your company, you need to verify domain ownership.

  1. On the Partner Center dashboard, from the Membership offers page, select Become a global admin.

  2. On the Verify domain ownership page copy the TXT values from the table. Notice that your domain is already selected for you.

  3. Sign into your domain.

  4. Follow the steps your domain provides to paste the TXT values into the DNS form. This allows us to verify that you own the domain you are trying to work from.

  5. Return to Partner Center and select Okay, I've added the record

  6. Once verification is complete you need to sign out. Sign in again to refresh your status.
