Hi,

 

Our manager left the company and was the owner of our Team. In O365 Admin I made myself the owner of the team on Friday, however I'm still showing as just a member in Teams and cant do any owner tasks. I am listed as the owner of the group in O365 but not teams. 

 

We are still seeing the issue where it says the manager has been added to the team again (TM165865 - Users deleted from Teams incorrectly show as re-added) and there are no owners listed under Roles when you manage the Team within the Teams client or website.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks.

Strange! It can take awhile but it should have synchronizes to Teams a while ago! What happens if you remove the user and add him/her again through teams??

 

Also next time always use Teams when adding users / change permissions! You won't have the sync waiting time

 

/ Adam

Try using the Teams admin center to make the change. You should have the team there under the teams tab which is new and manage permissions there. This is similar to using the client and will let you since you cannot do it through the client since you aren’t the owner on the team!

yeah! What @Chris Webb said!!  Missed the part where he was the one not yet the owner :)

In the Teams admin, I am the owner of the group.

 

I made another member admin yesterday too, and we both show as admin if Office 365 groups, and the Teams admin console, but not within the Teams client or site.

 

Its very odd.

 

I'm running the Dev Preview, Version 1.1.00.31860 (64 bit). Updated 05/12/2018.

Hi,

 

Chris & Adam please correct me if I am wrong as I am still learning . According to me if you are not part of the Global administrator or Customized administrator then you cant manage Teams as an admin. Just being a part of one group's admin will not give to the privilege to manage Teams nor be a  Teams's admin.

Someone should grant you one of the permission below

Hi, I am a global admin in Office 365 (and Azure AD)

Yes you have to be admin or the teams administrator RBAC role
Also, I just have changed owners and added owners in another team (i was already owner) in the same ways (via office 365 groups and the Teams admin console) and they have come through fine.

I'm going to delete me form the group completely and re-add to test that way
I think something is tricky in that Team...no matter from you set the user as owner, it should show in a very short time as owner in Teams
Sounds like a good idea! Something messed up!
Have you tried using the web client yet
Solution

Web client showed the same behaviour.

 

Deleting me form the Office 365 groups removed the team from the client almost instantly and was reflected in Teams admin too. I left it 10mins and re-added me as owner via Office 365 admin, and It appeared again almost instantly with me as owner. 

 

The other member I made owner yesterday is still just a member, so I'll do the same to him.

 

Seems like the team was 'stuck' somehow and not picking up the role changes.

We too are experiencing the same problem right now. We are using the Microsoft Graph API in order to change Team (Group) Owners via our own app and we can see the changed owners in Microsoft 365 admin center but not within the Teams Client. Is there any solution by now? We have checked the Team owners after a few hours and they still are not showing up with Teams.

 
Adding Owners as documented by MS:

GraphServiceClient.Groups[groupId].Owners.References.Request().AddAsync(owner);
