Office 365 - Domain Administrator Access

Office 365 domain administrators are UW NetID accounts which have administrative access to add, delete, and modify accounts in a Office 365 domain (e.g. department.wisc.edu).

Domain administration is controlled by a Manifest group. Each domain will have one Manifest group associated with it. Any member of this Manifest group will have the ability to administer the domain. By using Manifest for your group, you now have control of the group members and can also use a single group for multiple domains or other non-Office 365 purposes.

Instructions to use Manifest for Office 365

  1. Log into the Wisc Account Administration site with your NetID credentials.
  2. Select the desired domain you want to access from within the "Domains" listing.
  3. Select the Domain Properties menu item from the menu on the left.
  4. At the bottom of the Domain Properties page, there will be a listing of domain administrators. This listing will include any Manifest groups that have administrative rights over the domain. Make note of these to update them in the Manifest interface.
  5. Log into the Manifest administration interface and add Manifest group members to provide them with domain administration privileges.

Additional Notes on Using Manifest for Office 365 Domains

  • Once the group has initially been granted administrative access to the Office 365 domain, you may modify the members of your group without needing to contact the Office 365 Service Administrators. All members of the group will automatically have domain admin access when they log into the Wisc Account Administration site with their NetID credentials.
  • If you want to add another Manifest group as an administrator over the domain, all you need to do is add it as a group member to the original Manifest group.
