Suspension of Azure Application Administrator role for Management of add-ins across Outlook, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint

Suspension of Azure Application Administrator role for Management of add-ins across Outlook, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint

In an effort to improve the management of add-ins across Microsoft 365 suite products, Microsoft has announced that the Azure Application Administrator role will no longer be able to manage add-ins in Outlook, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. This suspension is scheduled to take effect from mid-February 2024 and is expected to be complete by the end of the same month. All other administrators, including Exchange administrators, Global Readers, and Global administrators, will still be able to manage add-ins with the same capabilities as usual.

As a result of this change, Azure Application Administrators will no longer be able to view the list of all add-ins and deployed apps across the affected Microsoft 365 suite products or deploy an add-in from AppSource to specific users or groups or within the entire tenant. Moreover, they won't be able to manage Teams Apps with extended capabilities on Outlook for users in outdated versions of Outlook on Mac, on mobile, or on Windows clients with office versions older than 2304. However, they will still be able to access the Integrated Apps page and manage Teams Apps with extended capabilities on Outlook and the Microsoft 365 App and SaaS Apps.

To prepare for this change, Microsoft recommends reviewing and updating the role assignments for Azure Application Administrators and assigning them to the Exchange Administrator or Global Administrator role in addition to the Azure Application Administrator role if they still require add-in management capabilities. Also, it is suggested that future administrators be educated on app management to avoid complications.
