Azure AD Privileged Identity Management - Display elevation propagation process
It would be beneficial to be able to track how the role elevation is propagating in the various components in Azure AD/Office 365. It's possible the you activate a role but it would only come effective several minutes later. From a user experience standpoint, the expectation is that everything is active right away once we receive the notification from the Azure Portal. If everything cannot get activated right away, it would be beneficial to be able to track the progress of the activation.
We are working with the exchange team to address this. You are correct, the expectation is you are activated immediately.
