What is the admin portal?

The Microsoft Fabric admin portal includes settings that govern Microsoft Fabric. For example, you can make changes to tenant settings, access the Microsoft 365 admin portal, and control how users interact with Microsoft Fabric.

To access the admin portal you need a Fabric license. The admin portal can be accessed by admins with the following roles:

  • Global administrator

  • Power Platform administrator

  • Fabric administrator

If you're not in one of these roles, you only see Capacity settings in the admin portal.
