    +1 cant believe we need to ask for this - it's called "delegated admin" not "partial delegated admin

    Partners can access Security and Compliance from the clients Office 365 Admin Center > Reports > Security and Compliance > Insight Dashboard. However, only global admins of the Partner tenant can access all items under Security an compliance while Admin Agents can only see what as well on the partner tenant's Security and Compliance. Giving Admin Agents Organization management permission on the S&C of the Partner tenant allow them to view items as well on the Client's S&C but there's a security risk as we have given Admin Agents access on most items under S&C of the Partner tenant.

    Can we please get this fixed? It defeats the whole point of "delegating administration" as far as audit tracing and not having to share a single admin account. Huge security WTF Microsoft.

    This is a serious oversight, causing a real headache for the additional administrative overhead involved in accessing our individual clients tenants, defeating the point of the MSP portal (or causing a loss of security compliance for non-repudation as the alternative). Please prioritise a feature to restore the previous level of functionality.

    Should be "allow partners to access ALL admin portals for tenants"
    Can't manage Skype, Teams, SharePoint, Azure, Security, etc for our clients. It's a great time to be a MS partner.

    as admins, security and compliance is one of the MOST IMPORTANT things for us to is silly that we don't have access to that when we do have access to many other very sensitive things...doesn't make any sense.

    This really needs to be addressed ASAP. I administer a number of tenants and on each tenant we have to set up an unlicensed admin account in order to access Security & Compliance center for each tenant. This is adds major complexity and, as far as I'm concerned, a security risk in and of itself as it requires extraneous admin accounts on each tenant.

    This is VERY important -- without this functionality it makes ATP and basic email troubleshooting impossible as an MSP taking care of hundreds of tenants >_>

    And to top it off, you have to log in thtrough a private session. Your partner info will still be used to open the Security center and you'll be in your own organizations Security portal even though you logged in as the global admin of your tenant.

    You truly must fix this mess...

    This is something we weren't aware of, and took a support call to find out we weren't able to access it. This is becoming more and more difficult to manage our clients by requiring us to use an account on their tenant for these items, and it's changing, with the list growing, Fo partners who have multiple technicians, all of our technicians will now need access to a single account, and in the case of an audit, a tenant can point the finger at us (the partner), but we have no where to point. This is, in fact, a security lapse, not a more secure environment. If I'm logged in as a partner, I'm logged specifically into MY account, and any access is tracable directly to a single individual. This is not the case with the way it's being set up.

    We have had access to the security and compliance center through powershell up until recently.

    Please restore our ability to connect to the security and compliance center of a tenant using partner credentials through powershell.

    Access through the admin portal would be nice, but not as high a priority for us.
