Manage an enterprise with Azure Communications Gateway's Number Management Portal for Operator Connect and Teams Phone Mobile
Azure Communications Gateway's Number Management Portal enables you to manage enterprise customers and their numbers through the Azure portal.
The Operator Connect and Teams Phone Mobile programs don't allow you to use the Operator Connect portal for provisioning after you've launched your service in the Teams Admin Center. The Number Management Portal is a simple alternative that you can use until you've finished integrating with the Operator Connect APIs.

Select an enterprise customer to manage
When an enterprise customer uses the Teams Admin Center to request service, the Operator Connect APIs create a consent. This consent represents the relationship between you and the enterprise.
The Number Management Portal allows you to update the status of these consents. Finding the consent for an enterprise is also the easiest way to manage numbers for an enterprise.

- If you need to change the status of the relationship, select Update Relationship Status from the menu for the enterprise. Set the new status. For example, if you're agreeing to provide service to a customer, set the status to Agreement signed. If you set the status to Consent Declined or Contract Terminated, you must provide a reason.
