Granular Delegated Admin Privileges (GDAP)

Granular Delegated Admin Privileges (GDAP) is a feature in Microsoft Azure Active Directory that allows administrators to delegate access to specific administrative tasks in a more granular way. With GDAP, administrators can assign permissions to specific tasks or actions within Azure AD and Office 365, rather than granting full administrative privileges to a user or group.

In relation to Microsoft Partner Center, GDAP enables Microsoft partners to delegate administrative tasks related to their customers’ Azure subscriptions and Office 365 tenants while retaining control over their own partner accounts. This allows partners to manage their customers’ resources more efficiently and effectively while maintaining a clear separation of responsibilities and access.

Using GDAP in Partner Center, partners can assign delegated administrator roles to users within their own organization or to users in their customers’ organizations, depending on their needs. Partners can delegate administrative privileges for specific Azure resources, such as virtual machines or storage accounts, to their customers’ IT staff, while retaining control over the partner account and overall management of the customer’s subscription.

This improves collaboration between partners and their customers and enables partners to provide better customer service by enabling their customers to manage their own resources while still being able to rely on their partner for support and guidance.
