With the integration of cloud into the Microsoft Partner Network, cloud license benefits are changing, as is the process used for Partners to access them.

From April 2, 2014, Australia will adopt the worldwide model for Office 365 Internal Use License (IUR) entitlement and attainment. Until then:

If you already have your Office 365 IUR: You will not be able to transition your licences until April 2, from this date you have until June 30, 2014 to complete the transition. The procedure is quick and easy – you don’t even need to change your tenant. Learn more about the transition and new entitlement structure here.

If you do not already have your Office 365 IUR: You can gain access to your licenses by following these steps:

  1. Locate your Partner ID (also known as MPN ID or Organisation ID) – Can’t find it? Sign in to the Partner Membership Centre
  2. Request access to your Office 365 licenses by emailing cpca@microsoft.com, stating your Organisation Name and Partner ID
  3. You should receive a response from the CPC team within 24 hours
  4. Remember: you will need to transition these licenses to the new process, from April 2 and by no later than June 30, 2014. The procedure is quick and easy – you don’t even need to change your tenant. Learn more about the transition and new entitlement structure here
