    Thank you for the information, this is well understood. and a great feature when a customer wants his support partner org to have full privileges on his workloads. But is a customer will like to keep this privileges to him self and use the partner support like it used in normal world of privacy and security. Making this mandatory for the incentive makes this very unfriendly to customers and puts him at risk. In the world with growing concerns of security and privacy a policy to incentive partners for support only if he is a an admin on the customer tenant is unacceptable and step against customer interest.
