Pop Quiz: Office 365: Assigning Permissions

Applies to the "Administer SharePoint Online" objective of Exam 74-324.

Q: An Office 365 Global Administrator wants to assign Office 365 Password administrator permissions to two users in the office. The administrator needs to know which permissions the users will receive.

Which permissions are included with the Office 365 Password administrator role? (Choose two.)

  1. Can reset passwords for other Password administrators
  2. Can reset passwords for User management administrators
  3. Can reset only user passwords
  4. Can reset user passwords


Answer and explanation are below.

Answer is A and D. Office 365 administrator permissions include a hierarchy of Global administrator, Billing administrator, Service administrator, User Management administrator and Password administrator.

Quick Tip: Administrators who forget their passwords can use the password self-reset process to regain access to their accounts. To use this feature, a mobile phone number can be used to receive a text message or an alternate email address that isn't connected to the Office 365 subscription.
