DPOR vs PAL – what is the difference?

PAL is only applicable to the modern commerce platform and relies on a partner being granted rights-based access to customer resources (owner or contributor access). PAL is automated in tracking capabilities and does not require partner input.

DPOR remains the mechanism for the EA, with no changes. Existing admin accounts (and associated PAL) remain unchanged when moving from EA to the Microsoft Customer Agreement. If a customer moves from EA to the modern platform, DPOR status does not move with them.
