Find the SharePoint Admin Center URL

Your SharePoint admin center is typically https://<Office 365 tenant IT>-admin.sharepoint.com

For example, if your tenant ID is abccorp.onmicrosoft.com, then your SharePoint Admin center URL will be https://abccorp-admin.sharepoint.com.

Confirm this by navigating to the SharePoint Admin console:

  1. Login to Office 365 dashboard using your Global Admin permissions.
  2. Go to the Admin section.
