Manage your partner account locations in Partner Center and add a new location

Appropriate roles

  • Global admin
  • User admin
  • Billing admin
  • Admin agent
  • Sales agent

The location MPN IDs identify each specific location of your company. You use the location MPN ID to enroll in incentive programs, to transact Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) business, to add new subscriptions, and other business transactions. The company MPN ID is used for non-transactional activities such as support requests.

The following is a typical scenario:

A partner company can have a CSP business and a publishing business. Their CSP business can be located in several locales and their pub business may be located in other locales.Their registered legal business has one MPN ID used for managing all non-transactional business such as adding users or logging support requests.

Each of their locations has an MPN ID used for transactional business such as CSP or incentives programs. Payouts are tied to specific locations.

Users may have roles that cross locations. For example, the incentives admin could have that role for all locations in Europe.
