Office 365 custom management roles

Is there a way to give the power to some users to only add/remove licenses of a specific product?

In our organization we have Exchange Online, Skype for Business Online and Project Online.

Who manages Project Online is a different group of users and (as we don't want people messing with user accounts) didn't add them in the User Administration role. So, whenever they need to assign a license to a specific user they need to send an e-mail asking for us to do it.

It would be much simpler if the product admins could add/remove the product licenses.

Any solution for this at the moment?

That is how the Azure AD is designed, so for short: there is no out-of-the-box solution for this.


However, one could create an app which would assign a license for the given user. Access to this app would then be given to only product admins. To my best knowledge, this is the only way to achieve the scenario.

No way to do this with the built-in tools, if you need it that bad you can look into some 3rd party tools (meaning spend some $$$).
