Get licenses assigned to a user

Applies To

  • Partner Center

How to get a list of licenses assigned to a user within a customer account. The examples shown here return licenses assigned from group1, the default license group that represents licenses managed by Azure Active Directory. To get licenses assigned from specified license groups, see Get licenses assigned to a user by license group.


  • Credentials as described in Partner Center authentication. This scenario supports authentication with App+User credentials only.
  • A customer identifier.
  • A user identifier.


To check which licenses are assigned to a user from the default group1 license group, first use the IAggregatePartner.Customers.ById method with the customer ID to identify the customer. Then call the Users.ById method with the user ID to identify the user. Next, get an interface to customer user license operations from the Licenses property. Finally, call the Get or the GetAsync method to retrieve the collection of licenses assigned to the user.

// string selectedCustomerUserId;
// string selectedCustomerId;
// IAggregatePartner partnerOperations;

var customerUserAssignedLicenses = partnerOperations.Customers.ById(selectedCustomerId).Users.ById(selectedCustomerUserId).Licenses.Get();

Sample: Console test app. Project: Partner Center SDK Samples Class: CustomerUserAssignedLicenses.cs
