NaviPartner can only get access to your BC365 through establishment of Granular Delegated Admin Privileges (GDAP). A GDAP relationship is established through an invitational link sent by NaviPartner. The invitation link contains information about the duration of the relationship and which Azure AD roles that will be assigned to NaviPartner. A relationship is automatically terminated at the end of the duration and the process of establishing a new GDAP relationship must executed again. The maximum duration is 2 years. NaviPartner recommends using this maximum duration to avoid the administrative work around re-creating the relationship. The customer can terminate the relationship before end of duration through Microsoft Admin Center.
