You do not have permission to access this page or perform this action – Office 365 Admin Role

Recently I came across a scenario where I have allocated a user in my Office 365 tenant a “Global Admin” role.

But as soon as the role has been assigned to the user and when the user logged in, the below error was generated when he tried to access the “Admin” tile on Office 365.

Admin issue

When investigated, managed to find out that this was not an issue as this was caused by Office 365 still assigning the user privileges to the user in the backend.

To overcome the issue, give some time prior to log in to the portal and accessing the “Admin” tile and your admin page should load up without issues.
