How do I create a user to whom I can grant permission to admin a B2C instance

I have an Azure Active Directory B2C instance and need to grant permissions to another person to admin this instance (create new app registrations, etc.). First, I must create the user to whom I'll grant the permission. I'm presented with these choices:


Which one should I choose?

When answering, keep in mind that this is in the B2C's directory. Let me know if I should switch to the Default Directory before performing the add user action.

    Thanks Adrian. I would recommend to follow this document to create a new user. (

    Adding new user with B2C tenants is recommended to have either invite users and signup user with domain associated with B2C tenants to operate on.

    Hi @Adrian , you can either create a user or B2C user, and then make them a global administrator. Please let me know if you need any help doing this.
