In this Step, you create a Service Account and a Web App Secret (Password) to prepare for connecting Total One Platform with your CSP Partner Center tenant.
Service Account is a Partner Center Global Admin Account exclusively used for communication between Total One Platform and CSP Partner Center.
2.1 To create a new user account, go to Office 365 /Admin Center / Active Users:
2.2 Enter user account name
Replace "yourdomain" with your real Azure AD tenant domain.
2.3 Assign Global Admin permissions to the user account
Your new account must be a Global Admin in Office 365.
I'm a paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me. Let your users get to know you.
2.4 Set a strong password!
Strong password has 12-16 characters, capital letters, lowercase letters, digits and special characters.
See password restrictions of Microsoft with max. 16 characters and no spaces:
2.5 Set Password policy to "Password does not expire".
Store the password in a safe place, for example, in a dedicated Password Manager, such as Keepass: https://keepass.info/download.html. You will use the password only occasionally.
It is mandatory that the account is MFA-enforced (Multi-Factor Authorization).
Most probably your organization already has an AzureAD Policy in place. The policy enforces MFA setting on your Administrators.
Check your Access Policy here: https://portal.azure.com
(see the screenshot below)
If this policy is not enabled, you can configure enforced MFA in Office 365 Portal:
(see the screenshot below)
For MFA, we usually recommend Microsoft Authenticator App installed on your Mobile device.
Here are the links to Apple App Store and Google Play Store:
You can also enrol with SMS and email notifications only.
2.6 To assign permissions to your new account in Partner Center, open browser and log into Microsoft Partner Center using an existing account with Global Admin permissions:
2.7 Find your newly created user account and assign the permissions as shown in the screenshot below.
Manages your organization's account as - Global Admin
Assists your customers as - Admin Agent
Manages your organization's incentives for one or more locations - Entire Organization and Incentive Administrator
2.8 Make a cross-check in Office365 or Azure AD Portal if your new account is a member of the Security Group Admin Agent.
If your new account is not a member of the Admin Agent Security Group, add it to the Group.
2.9 To get your Web App ID and Web App Secret,
go to Microsoft Partner Center and click on the Settings icon in the upper right corner of the Partner Center navigation. Select Partner Settings.
2.10 In Web App Management, copy App ID and paste it to Notepad.
2.11 In Web App Management, create a new Web App Secret with a validity of 2 years.
Copy the Secret and paste it to Notepad.
In most cases, this copy/paste action adds unnecessary spaces at the end of the Secret. Remove them!
Also copy the Secret's expiration date and save it together with the rest of the information.
We recommend to store the combination of Web App ID and Secret in a Password Vault of your choice.
The Secret is used to access Partner Center and is also your Decryption Key in Total One Platform.
In the Total One Platform, this information is stored at rest end-to-end encrypted. Additionally, credentials are stored in an Azure Key Vault.
The information is only accessible by the application. No person has access to it!
DO NOT LOSE the Web App Secret! Remember where you saved it!
Azure Key Vault has no backdoors or master keys.
2.12 IMPORTANT! Activate MFA and log in with your new user account.
2.13 You will be requested to enrol into MFA.
Follow the on-screen instructions.

To cross-check that all permissions are correctly configured, go to Users and check if the account has the following permissions:
2.15 Go through a few pages: check if you see your Customers, Billing data, etc.
If everything is set correctly, you should see the same information as with your regular account.
