Add and manage multiple tenants in your Partner Center account

Appropriate roles

  • Global admin
  • Account admin

This feature allows you to manage multiple tenants for your company and to consolidate them into your Partner Center account. There are many reasons why you may need to manage multiple Azure AD tenants in your Partner Center account. For example:

  • Your company may purchase another company, and you want the employees in the new company to be able to use Partner Center. However, you want the two companies to remain separate. In this case, you'd associate the new company's Azure AD tenant with your Partner global account (PGA). This association would enable users in both companies to work in Partner Center.

  • If you have more than one tenant to run your business (e.g. contoso.com, contoso.uk, contoso.in) you can use multi-tenancy to tie them under the same PC account.

  • Mergers and acquisitions requires you to work with more than one tenant (e.g. If Contoso acquires Fabrikam, you would need to be able to use both Constoso.com and Fabrikam.com respective tenants).

  • Users from any of the tenants would need to be able to:

    1. Access Partner Center for training, digital downloads, MCP association
    2. Be assigned Partner Center roles like MPN Admin, Incentives Admin etc.

Add another Azure AD tenant to your account

  1. As the global admin, sign into the Partner Center dashboard.
  2. From the Settings icon, select Account settings and then select Tenants.

  1. After you confirm, you will see an All set notice. Select Return to tenant management and you'll see the newly added tenant listed.

Note

You can't associate a tenant to an account if it is already associated to another Partner Center account.

Remove a tenant from your account

  1. As the global admin, sign into the Partner Center dashboard.

  2. From the Settings icon, select Account settings -> Tenants and click on the Partner tab.

  3. Click Remove for the tenant you want to dissociate.

  4. Dissociating a tenant means that the users on that tenant will no longer have access to the Partner Center account, and this could have an impact on your competencies.

The Remove button is enabled for all associated tenants, except the primary tenant and the tenant which you are currently signed into.
