    Yes, you can assign administrator or no administrator role to each user inside the admin.microsoft.com dashboard.

    Thank Bryan. Can you share with me some documentation about assigning the roles inside admin.microsoft.com dashboard? I sat with my tech admin and we viewed the admin dashboard but saw no option to assign different roles to our set of users. We have over 100 accounts and it's frustrating that they are all teacher accounts.

    So if you are actually dealing with all of the Microsoft 365 accounts being Faculty accounts, that is probably something you need to talk with some one from Microsoft about.

    As to within Minecraft.  If you have distributed the worlds out to the students, I believe if the world is being hosted on a student's computer, then they will have the ability to make themselves operator on worlds hosted on their own computer (otherwise it would be impossible for students to create things in worlds on their own computers.)  If you are hosting the worlds and students come into your world, you should be able to take away operator status from students.  I don't believe teacher accounts can have operator status revoked.

    Hopefully you can get the account situation sorted out.  Might need to call the 3rd party vendor.  I know I just had an issue getting them to update my payment method for our subscription.

    There might be a work around where you could set a repeating command block (make sure you know where you place it and can disable it if necessary by using a fill air command if you have to) Make sure you first tag yourself as teacher

    /tag @s add teacher

    Then put the command in the command block

    /ability @a[tag=!teacher] worldbuilder false

    You will probably have to also disable command block output or it will constantly fill your screen telling you what it's doing.  I would not recommend doing this normally and if there is much going on in the world (too many command blocks and redstone etc, it could cause lag.)

    Alternatively, you might just run that command manually and you could also probably run a similar command do deop everyone else.

    I went into my dashboard just to confirm -- and if you click on a user, it will bring up a window where you can adjust a lot of data fields, one of them being 'role'

    Let me know if you don't see it.

    There may be a mechanism to edit them in bulk, but I have never tried.

    Micah M does the Minecraft app look at the Office 365 admin settings to determine whether an account is a faculty or student account? IOW if I have a faculty version of Office 365, will I automatically have a teacher role in Minecraft EDU, and if I have a student version of Office 365, will I automatically have a student version of Minecraft Edu? or is there another setting which must be addressed? Please and thanks!

    Debbie and Bryan are correct. Minecraft: Education Edition directly inherits the "Role" from the Microsoft admin center and it's based on the license as Debbie shared. Teachers do have additional permissions that can't be removed within Minecraft, so I'd suggest you work with the company who deployed your Microsoft accounts to make sure Teachers and Students have the correct licenses applied to their accounts.

    One of our customer has the same problem that the students of Operator access altough they have the correct licenses in the M365 Admin Center assigned. Does anyone have another solution?
