Get Administrator roles and Privileged Identity Management roles of an Azure AD tenant

To ensure the security of your Microsoft 365 client, we recommend implementing an appropriate governance and security strategy. An effective measure is to determine the current administrators and their permissions. In this article, we want to identify administrators with permanent roles and administrators who can use roles with Privileged Identity Management (PIM). PIM provides just-in-time privileged access to Azure AD and Azure resources. See how to find all Administrators, including PIM, here.

Delegate365-Working with guest users

Delegate365 supports working with guest users. Guest users or external users are users that are invited to the company tenant by email. Once they accept the invitation, they get access to corporate resources. For example, a guest user can be a member of a Microsoft team or collaborate in Planner or in a SharePoint site or similar. See some samples here.
