First Global administrator in a tenant

New Contributor


The first admin account that is being created in a new Office 365/Azure AD tenant, is it "special" and should not be used by regular users or deleted?


Is it possible to identify the the first admin account in someway?

Nothing special about it, you can remove it later, or make it a regular user, etc. As to identifying it, just look at the WhenCreated property.

Thanks @Vasil Michev for the reply. Is there anyway you can confirm this? Documentation or anything?
