How do I access the MileIQ admin center?

You can access the MileIQ admin center at once you have set an account with a Business Administrator role.  The Global Administrator is able to assign a new administrator role, Business Administrator, in the Azure Active Directory. Once you've designated a Business Administrator, they can manage the workflows in the MileIQ admin center. More than one Business Administrator can be assigned. Note: Every steps of this guide is required to gain access, please follow all sections to completion.


Additional note: MileIQ is no longer a part of Microsoft and are honoring AAD users through the end of March 2022.

Install homebrew (if not installed yet)

brew update && brew install azure-cli

az login --use-device-code --allow-no-subscriptions
