Since January 2020 Microsoft requires partners confirm that their customers accepted the MCA (Microsoft Customer Agreement), this is the replacement for the previous MCA (Microsoft Cloud Agreement).
You’ll find more information on this through the following URL’s:
We have added a confirmation option in the 2tcloud portal on the Microsoft subscriptions to assist you in confirming that your customer has agreed with the MCA. This confirmation is then pushed to the customer’s Microsoft tenant.
For this we use Microsoft Partner Center API/SDK which means that you can enter the MCA required information using our 2tcloud portal directly.
To use this option, follow the steps below
