Digital Partner of Record (DPOR) is used for Enterprise Agreement (EA) subscriptions. It associates Synergy Advisors to a Microsoft cloud subscription. It’s the online capability to attach Synergy Advisors to a customer’s Microsoft online subscription. DPOR benefits the customer and also enables us to help customers optimize their usage for desired business outcomes. If a customer moves from EA to the modern commerce platform, DPOR status doesn’t move with them.
To link Synergy Advisors’ PartnerID, customers must grant access to their Azure resources by using one of the following options:
Add Synergy Advisors as a guest user and assign any Azure roles. For more information, see Add guest users from another directory
You must add Synergy Advisors as the DPOR each time a new subscription is acquired. Microsoft policy is that only the customer can designate a DPOR for their subscriptions. Discover in the following video how to link Synergy Advisors PartnerID with DPOR; use the Synergy Advisors PartnerID 3664167 for this process:
The following are the customer benefits of adding the DPOR to the subscription:
The administrator role, also known as the “owner,” is the only role within the tenant or account that can attach a partner of record. Service admins, coadmins, and partners who have been designated as delegated admins can’t change the partner of record.
We recommend assigning a partner of record to Azure subscriptions immediately. This capability is also enabled for Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, Business Central, Intune, and Enterprise Mobility Suite subscriptions in the admin portal for those services.
DPOR designation can be changed, added, and removed as many times as customers wish by following these steps:
No, there can be only one DPOR designated on any single subscription at a time.
Partners with DPOR association to customer Azure subscriptions can access the following customer data.
